About the partnership
Realise delivers apprenticeships and adult education programmes in England. It has partnered with First Bus to develop a dedicated course in customer service skills and driving theory to offer hard-to-reach groups and unemployed in West Yorkshire the opportunity to start a career with the region’s leading bus operator.
Funded by West Yorkshire Combined Authority, the new training programme has been designed to teach learners the skills and behaviours required to succeed in the transport industry.
The 10-day course will be delivered through online and classroom teaching, with learners undertaking training in customer service and bus driving theory with Realise before getting behind the wheel with First Bus and securing a job with great career opportunities.
