Awards & Industry Recognition

DAF are immensely proud that our Apprentice Programme is consistently recognised as one of the best in the UK. We believe it’s vitally important to have the right skill levels in our dealerships, and what better way to get those skills than to grow your Apprentices through your own Apprentice Programme.


National Apprenticeship Service Awards

We have been recognised in the Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list as complied by the National Apprenticeship Service 5 out of the last 6 years, acknowledging our excellence in business for employing Apprentices.   

Following one of our successes, Mark Howard, NAS Divisional Apprenticeship Director, said: “I’d like to congratulate DAF Trucks for this superb achievement. They are a shining example of how Apprenticeships can allow employers to grow their own talent, and enable Apprentices to build real careers.”


City of Bristol College Award

With 120 new Apprentices in 2018 and almost 300 on the programme, we needed to expand the College facilities, DAF have supported this with the provision of 3 new vehicles to go into the new additional workshop, giving us now 3 connecting workshops and 13 DAF Trucks at the College.
