A five-day course in forklift truck driving at Buxton & Leek College is helping unemployed people back into the jobs market.

Job centres are signposting people to the college’s new £1 million Skillsbase training centre on the Harpur Hill Business Park in Buxton where, thanks to good links with a local employment agency, trainees are leaving with a new job as well as a qualification.

Tutor Tony Deane, who delivers the Road Transport Industry Training Board (RTITB) course, has trained people of all ages in forklift truck handling, warehouse and storage.
