Working with Go North West
Go North West started to deliver bus routes across Bolton and Wigan last month after being awarded the first major franchise contracts by Transport for Greater Manchester under its new Bee Network.
A team of nearly 800 bus drivers will be operating services in Bolton and Wigan and Go North West has launched a major apprenticeship programme to help train new recruits to the industry.
Go North West selected Realise as its training partner of choice to lead the 13-month programmes, which is likely to see around 25 new apprentices start each month.
It further strengthens Realise’s bus driver training credentials with the provider also delivering apprenticeships for Stagecoach and creating newly-trained drivers through its own exclusive Route to Success boot-camp.
