AccXel to offer JCB trainee programme

Gloucestershire's brand new construction training centre will offer the UK's first JCB plant operation trainee programme.

AccXel, which is currently being built in Cinderford, is the first co-funded industry-led construction facility in the UK, founded by Nicola Bird of K W Bell Group and co-funded by K W Bell and the Government's Getting Building Fund, awarded by GFirst LEP.

With JCB as a corporate partner, AccXel will train students on its live site on the latest JCB plant, including a 10-tonne excavator, cabbed dumper, roller and telescopic handler.

JCB will provide brand new equipment every six months to enable trainees to experience the most technologically-advanced machinery and to inspire the start of their career through the use of a leading global plant brand.

AccXel will start its first JCB plant operation trainee programme in April 2022.
