NOW SAFED FUNDING HAS ENDED . . . .

Now that SAFED funding has ended, would be interested to hear colleagues' feelings about this training.

How successful have you been in finding clients?

Personally, it has been a waste of time and money. Got a potential client with about 30 drivers a week before register closed! Client failed to respond in time (or lost interest).

Small companies can't see the big picture and only see their driver not working for the day therefore not earning them money. The big boys are more switched on, but prefer to go with RoSPA or IAM etc.

Re: NOW SAFED FUNDING HAS ENDED . . . .

I personally have had loads of work and have only paused because of the 30-driver limit imposed by the DfT.

The company I am with has been very successful in "selling" SAFED and has many more "clients" lined up for the future who are interested on a commercial basis.

So for me, it has been both successful and lucrative.

Re: NOW SAFED FUNDING HAS ENDED . . . .

Peter I experienced some similar figures and have secured some follow on business, thought I would have to tender for the next lot of drivers but at crunch time the two companies both asked if it would be at the original rate £175.00 per driver and who am I to refuse. Just need them to pass the message on as promised and see this grow into a retirement fund.

Re: NOW SAFED FUNDING HAS ENDED . . . .

Strange how things work out . . .

Got a call from a Welsh company about driver training having seen our name on SAFED website.

Had meeting with their Fleet Manager and Training Manager this week. Got a contract for giving them a bespoke driver training course with continued work when they get new drivers!

Cool!  big_smile

Re: NOW SAFED FUNDING HAS ENDED . . . .

I've got to say we did incredibly well out of the SAFED scheme and sold well over 500 courses either to our own trainers or to associate trainers.

Sometimes you have to spot an opportunity and make the best of it  wink

Re: NOW SAFED FUNDING HAS ENDED . . . .

Agree with all of the positive comments above - Safed worked well for the participating companies on our patch and there is spin-off work potential for the enterprising ADI's amongst us.
"enterprising" is the key word, though - if we sit back and wait for the work to land on our doormat we'll continue to sit and wait.
go get it, I say.
