Stopping transport courses could hamper, says FTA
FTA has said that the decision by Ulster University to discontinue transport courses ‘will be a huge loss to the local transport’. In a statement, it said the move could ‘hamper safety and compliance standards, and would be extremely detrimental to the economy’.
The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has called on the Minster for Employment and Learning and the Minister for the Environment in Northern Ireland to reconsider the decision made by the University to cease the established courses from 2018. Alternatively, it has suggested it could develop new provisions in Logistics and Transport in order to educate and provide industry with future leaders.
