The shortage of professional drivers has already reached many companies in the transport industry, freight forwarding, and logistics. This is the reason why Intertransport Association (GIZ ITT) has developed a pilot project that aims to appeal to the future generation of professional drivers among migrants, refugees, and other jobseekers in Slovenia.

Project description:

  • It is an educational program during which participants will be trained for one of the many vacant jobs in the transport industry and will be able to participate in the labour market actively.
  • During the training, participants will obtain the driving license for trucks (category C).
  • The training is open for Slovenians, migrants, and refugees with a residence permit.
  • Intertransport Association is project coordinator and responsible for recruitment, selection, training, and follow-up of the participants.
