Good afternoon everyone!
Quick question, we have lots of drivers from Moldova and Ukraine, their English language is very basic, I was wondering if there is alternative 35 hours CPC language courses for drivers available in the UK? Thanks

Attendance is compulsory so doesn't matter what language!

I understand that, but is there some sort of test at the end that they will have to complete? Also it will be a bit embarrassing if tutor will ask a question and someone will be struggling to a) understand the question, b) answer it due to the language barrier (even if the question is understood). Thanks

it’s a big issue with CPC. They do need to be able to understand. You can’t just attend and not have a clue what’s going on. But does need to be delivered in English. It’s an issue that needs addressing urgently.

not what he asked. Post is about courses being delivered in languages OTHER than English, as the drivers probably aren’t fluent in it

it is possible for a translator to assist in the course as well. This can be done by talking to the training provider before hand and having a translator translate the slides which can be used as hand outs.

Make sure the Moldovan drivers have got valid licence i.e passed in EU country and not just passed in Moldova and then exchanged for Romanian licence. Good practice is to make sure all are on UK Licences
