The Volvo Group has been running vocational school projects for mechanics in Africa for several years. Now the first vocational school project for truck drivers has been launched. Recently a formal opening ceremony for the new school in Ethiopia was held and the Group plans to start similar programmes in several other countries.
The training for truck drivers will take place at the Selam Technical and Vocational Centre in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa.
“This is the school where we have set up a vocational school for mechanics in a previous project,” explains Johan Reiman, who is responsible for support to vocational training within the Group.
