We would like to say a huge congratulations to Steven Fielding on passing his PCV test. Steven was the first recruit for the newly launched Driver Training Academy and we are so proud to welcome him to The Kings Ferry family.
“I would like to congratulate Steven on passing his test and hope you continue to learn from our great driving team who have so much experience to pass on.”, says Simon Le Mar, Group Training and Development Manager.
Steven joined us four weeks ago after hearing about our new Driver Training Academy
and was the first to enrol in the programme.
“Steven was a pleasure to train. He took instructions well and took on board all the feedback he was given and implemented it straight away within his driving”, explains Lee Marriott, Steven’s Trainer.
Steven’s journey so far has taken him around the beautiful Kentish countryside and along the coast in our dedicated training coach. After four weeks of intense coach training and hard work, Steven passed his PCV test!
Now that Steven has his PCV licence, he will now undergo the induction course with the training team. After this he will embark on a three week training course with a mentor where he will learn his new job role. Steven will begin his mentor training with our commuter services and London pickups. He will then go onto private hires with our most experienced drivers to enable him the driving time needed and learn that side of the business.
The Academy’s First Pass
The Kings Ferry are incredibly proud to welcome Steven to the company, he has been an excellent recruit and his hard work and dedication is the reason why we launched the Driver Training Academy.
"I am very proud of the first pass we have received. The team have worked very hard from start to finish with getting the academy up and running, from Debbie Mann on the recruitment side to myself, Lee Miller and Lee Marriott getting systems in place for all the modules.
I would like to thank my team for their continuous hard work within training and the new academy.” , exclaims Simon.
We would also like to say a huge thanks to the training team and in particular, Group Training and Development Manager, Simon Le Mar for all your dedication and hard work that went into creating the Driver Training Academy. We are incredibly proud of all those involved and would like to say congratulations on your first pass of the Academy!
