Abstract

Training programmes for road transport jobs and positions vary significantly across Europe and worldwide. The training programmes are highly developed and specialised in some countries, being strategically managed at a national level, whilst in many countries, training in particular for lower-skilled positions, is mostly organised and managed in-house by companies, and just a few national formal training schemes are available. Therefore, it is necessary to identify potential gaps in the availability of training schemes and programmes in the road transport sector, to support further development of new programmes or the improvement of existing ones. This paper is centered on the analysis of existing training programmes and schemes for road transport primarily in Europe, but additionally Australia is also added in the study. A data set has been collected and statistically analysed for a number of countries. Different job categories in road transport have been studied. A comparison of results is presented showing a vast diversity and lack of standard in skills development for road transport. The study did not identify any evidence for any harmonised procedure and best practices in skills development for road transport amongst the countries under study. Instead, it appears that each country has developed and implemented training programmes and courses for a specific audience, targeting a specific learning outcome.
