A day in the life of TTA FLT Instructor and teaching assistant, Becky Splaine

TTA was delighted to welcome a new member to the team a few weeks ago. Her name is Becky Splaine, and she joined TTA as an FLT Instructor and teaching assistant at the end of March. Although Becky only had limited experience in logistics, she quickly learned after undertaking her FLT Instructor’s training that she was perfectly suited to the role. We’re pleased to say that Becky has settled in nicely and has revelled in her new role in the short time she’s been with the team. Here she explains what the role entails and what she does in a typical day at Transport Training Academy.

What did you do before you started work at TTA, and did you have any experience in logistics?

“I was a kitchen fitter originally and had worked in warehousing, but I had to leave that job when I became unwell. As a result of that illness I was off work for about a year, but then I came to TTA for training. I had some experience in logistics in previous jobs particularly in warehousing, but I hadn’t had any direct experience with forklift trucks until I did my instructors course here. It was a new experience for me, but I took to it easily and really enjoyed it.”

What do you do in a typical day?

“Well, I’m a forklift truck instructor and a teaching assistant for warehousing, though I’m not sure there’s any such thing as a typical day. Every day is different. You meet new people all the time and come across different challenges each day. It’s that variety that makes the job so satisfying.”

How have you enjoyed your first few weeks at TTA?

“I’ve loved my time here. It’s been absolutely brilliant. The job has proved to be everything I expected it to be, and more. The last few weeks have been very satisfying, and I can say without hesitation that I really do love it here. The team have been very helpful and supportive, and I know if ever I have a problem or come across something I’m unsure of I can always turn to my team mates for guidance. It’s a great place to work and they’re a great team to work with.”

Are you looking to undertake any further training to increase your skillset in the future?

“I’m very happy doing what I’m doing at the moment, but I would love to do some further training in the future, particularly HIAB training. That would be another feather in my cap, and would make me a more valuable team member.”
