Trade Refuse Vehicle Donation – An Investment In Education
We have donated an ex front-line Vehicle to the students at Stephenson College in Coalville, Leicestershire to develop skill sets and enhance future job prospects.
The donation outlines the growing relationship between us and Stephenson College. We currently have two apprentices from the college’s HGV Maintenance & Repair course working at our Head Office in Beaumont Leys, Leicester.
The refuse truck, which was formally out on the roads around Leicestershire collecting trade waste from the likes of Leicester City Football Club, Donington Park and Leicester Racecourse, will now get a second lease of life as a training vehicle for students to get hands-on mechanical experience.
Dr. Nigel Leigh, Principal and Chief Executive of Stephenson College:
“We are very grateful for the donation Bakers Waste has made to support the delivery of our apprenticeship programme. The apprentices will have the opportunity to work on vehicles that they will experience in their work environments, and this supports the quality of their experience and its relevance to their employers.”
Fleet Manager at Bakers Waste, Craig Kimberlin, who himself completed a City & Guilds Motor Vehicle apprenticeship through Stephenson college, was on hand to present the refuse truck.
He said: “As a former Motor Vehicle City & Guilds student at Stephenson College, I am extremely excited by the opportunity to present the college with a vehicle that is relevant to the industry with which the students can familiarise themselves. We believe this is an investment in Leicestershire motor vehicle education and are incredibly proud to be contributing.”
We are committed to offering opportunities to young people in the region, with the relationship forged with Stephenson College being a key example of this.
With a commitment to offering even more opportunities to apprentices as Bakers Waste continues to grow, the relation being forged with Stephenson College will continue to flourish. Providing an increasing number of job opportunities to young people in the region is a priority for Director Paul Baker.
