In recent years we’ve been involved in projects focused on developing professional drivers, and we’ve built a reputation for consistent work that can be trusted and relied on.
If you’re looking for a reliable, experienced partner for projects that focus on raising standards, creating opportunities, improving business or developing people then give us a call!
A project led by James Tillyer on behalf of the UK partner FTA, ProfDRV focused on building an EQF compatible set of knowledge, skills and competences for professional drivers, with the focus on Driver CPC. The results and recommendations were used as key reference material by the European Commission for their consultation on Driver CPC between July – October 2013, and our work helped to create a more structured framework for truck and bus drivers across Europe.
James was responsible for developing the knowledge, skills and competences for 12 key tasks of professional truck driving, UK analysis of periodic training standards, interviews and stakeholder workshops.
Another in the series of ‘DRV’ projects, ICT-DRV focused on computer-based distance learning (CBT) and the use of simulators (SBT) in vocational training. This project delivered key results that showed a need for more integrated solutions between CBT-based training, the European Qualification Framework and the national implementation of training standards.
James was responsible for helping develop trainer competences and recommendations and facilitating stakeholder engagement during the project. The results were used alongside those from Prof DRV for the Driver CPC consultation.
The Future DRV project used the results from the previous two projects to explore the future of professional driving by reviewing the tasks and role of professional drivers and their qualification requirements in 2030 and beyond.
James was responsible for helping to develop the core driver profile, for issues specific to bus drivers, providing advice for the development of two pilot training modules and for stakeholder engagement.
Developed by Transformotion and part-funded through the Erasmus + programme, Steer to Career aims to build on the work already done through the other projects. The focus is making sure that professional truck and bus drivers have redeployment opportunities when level 5 (full autonomy) is eventually used in mainstream road transport, effectively limiting the risk of mass redundancies.
James is the overall project coordinator and contributor with Davina managing the project.
ESCO is the multilingual classification of European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations. ESCO is part of the Europe 2020 strategy.
The ESCO classification identifies and categorises skills, competences, qualifications and occupations relevant for the EU labour market and education and training. It systematically shows the relationships between the different concepts.
James was part of a expert panel to provide advice on the development of the transportation and storage element of ESCO.
"I've been working with James for nearly a decade now, and when I reflect on the various European projects we've collaborated on, the first thing that comes to mind is that James has a keen understanding of all the challenges and opportunities facing the transport and logistics sectors, especially in this era of intense technological enhancements.
I have been fortunate enough to work under James’ guidance in projects coordinated by Transformotion, where James has always been able to blend quality, rigorousness and effectiveness with an open-minded collaborative approach"
