Montgomery Transport Group are absolutely delighted to welcome to our team the first group of apprentices to our Training Academy which started in Preston on Monday 23rd May. This is a new and exciting project to help bring a new generation of younger people into our business, and to help assist with the problems the industry has due to the national shortfall of Driver’s and traffic operators.

We wish Jack, Sam, Kevin and Edward every success with their training with us and will provide them all with as much support and assistance as possible as they commence their training. The next intake of apprentices will be towards the end of June and the project will continue in the coming months and years with planned expansion to other locations.
