Black Achievers Award 2016

Elevate Driving School in Nottingham and our C.E.O Julian picks up his BAA award

Black Achievers Award is a prestigious black tie award ceremony which aims to strengthen community cohesion and celebrate the roles and achievements of inspiring people of colour in Nottingham.

Black people have experienced many years of negative press and BAA aim to change this by showing the Black community that there are real positive role models out there.

Julian, our Elevate founder, having started out with only one tuition car is considered to be an entrepreneur, often sponsors inner city sports teams and also visits inner city schools in a mentoring capacity.

Originally our founder’ s intention was to work as a Social Worker working with disadvantaged children at risk of offending and at risk of being excluded from both school and society. During our founder’s previous career development, he found himself to be a part of the Management Team working in Front Line Homelessness. A client group consisting of mostly rough sleepers, and service users suffering with alcohol dependency, drug dependency and mental health issues.

Our C.E.O is viewed as a positive role model in the local community and an inspiring individual for young black males in our inner cities. As a representative of Elevate Driving School Julian is recognised as making a positive contribution to both the local and the UK economy.

Driving School in Nottingham

Our driving school in Nottingham is extremely unique in that it has been built upon a Transport Industry Foundation, our C.E.O  has held an LGV 1 licence for over 20 years and has driven professionally worldwide. Our C.E.O always wanted quality fully qualified driving instructors at our driving school in Nottingham, providing driving lessons throughout the city and the East Midlands and has never settled for anything less than the best, actively ‘Head Hunting’ who he feels are among the best driving instructors in Nottingham and regularly turning away driving instructors not up to the high standards we ourselves set as a driving school. Our C.E.O and owner initially set out to work as a Social Worker and  was actively involved in Youth Work and Community Spirited Events such as sponsoring  inner city football teams.  Our C.E.O is now also a fully qualified and DVSA approved driving instructor who has gone into schools and introduced Elevate driving school to school pupils as part of their daily lessons. Our Director  with his extensive driving back ground as an accident free International Commercial Haulage LGV 1 Driver throughout Europe and has also driven in both the African and Asian Continents basically means that our Driving School is not only people focused but has also been built upon a driving foundation, unlike lots of driving Schools where the Founder has transferred from a completely different industry or profession. Complimented by also having spent time working as a Housing Manager in hard core Front line Homelessness, with Management Responsibility of a Staff Team of over 20 Professionals, providing complex needs housing and support to people in our community unfortunate enough to have found themselves for example, sleeping rough without either food or shelter or with substance dependency related issues like drugs or alcohol means that both our C.E.O and Elevate are people focused and have a commitment for driving excellence and continued road safety. Our C.E.O takes personal responsibility in recruiting and ensuring that all our Driving Instructors have the necessary people skills required to operate under the Elevate Driving School Banner, hence the reason for our Driving Schools inception… All our female and male driving instructors are DSA registered and DSA checked regularly to ensure their ability to conduct driving lessons and to perform as a driving instructor remains up to standard and our driving instructors and driving school staff are hand picked for their individual contribution to ‘ Team Elevate’ and we prefer only Fully Qualified Green Badge Driving Instructors ideally who have been qualified for at least 5 years and as you would expect with our Directors Professional background, all our instructors have to be CRB checked before we will allow them to conduct driving lessons for Elevate Driving School so calling us on 01158 717475 not only makes seriously good sense, but could save you money if you pass your driving test 1st or 2nd time.
