After the completion of an extensive makeover, Go‑Ahead London is pleased to announce the opening of a new Recruitment and Training Academy.
The opening event took place on 5 March and was attended by Managing Director John Trayner, TFL Commissioner Mike Brown, TFL's Director of Bus Operations Claire Mann, the entire Recruitment and Training team and many others.
The building which is used to hold all of Go‑Ahead London’s Recruitment & Training is based in Camberwell and has been standing for over 100 years. The company currently has over 6,500 drivers and an additional 1,400 staff on books and every employee is required to walk through the doors of the Training School to complete classroom-based training and/or a medical.
With such heavy footfall, coupled with the age of the building, the decision was made for the interior and exterior to undergo a significant refurbishment. Whilst works was taking place, it was business as usual as Go‑Ahead London continued to take on new recruits to join the largest bus operating company in London.
“I am extremely proud of our fresh new Recruitment and Training Academy and I look forward to welcoming our new apprentices.”
John Trayner, Managing Director
