Here at Acclaim Handling we have been running apprenticeships since 1990! We are the only Forklift company in the UK which has been running an apprenticeship scheme for over 30 years. We are a family run company, where you are never just a cog in the machine.
The apprenticeship is a three year course which involves a mix of college attendance outside of the workplace and on-the-job training within the workplace, all while being supported by a chosen mentor, who will show you the ropes and guide you through the apprenticeship.
During your time as an apprentice at Acclaim Handling you will earn all the qualifications and knowledge needed to become a successful forklift engineer:
IMI – Intermediate Apprenticeship Lift Truck Maintenance and Repair Qualification (Level 2)
IMI – Advanced Apprenticeship Lift Truck Maintenance and Repair Qualification (Level 3)
Our Forklift Engineering Apprentice scheme is pioneered and managed by Andy Radbourne, who originally started as an apprentice at acclaim over 20 years ago, and has since advanced through the ranks and is now Acclaim Handling's Group Fleet & Asset Manager.
