Skills for Security is partnering with Kings Secure Technologies to deliver apprenticeships as part of a new scheme. From 2020, Skills for Security will manage, develop and deliver apprenticeship training using Kings Secure Technologies’ training facility in Bradford, with Kings apprentices being the first to benefit from the new scheme.
The location of the centre also offers up the opportunity to allow apprenticeship training to be more accessible in the North East and Yorkshire region.
Kelly Fisher, chief Human Resources officer at Kings Secure Technologies, commented: “It has always been a priority for Kings to be leading the way on Best Practice in the fire and security industry. The Kings Training Academy, delivered by Skills for Security, will help to formalise the training structure we already have in place and give our apprentices a clear career path and route towards becoming fully trained and more confident. We will provide longer term prospects in the industry.”
David Scott, managing director of Skills for Security, responded: “Giving apprentices the necessary skills to begin their careers is shaping the future of our industry. Time and time again we compare the skills shortage with the rate of industry growth, and it’s plainly evident that we need more engineers. I’m thrilled to be working with Kings Secure Technologies’ Training Academy. We can bring more apprentices to the North East and Yorkshire region, combining our skilled tutors with the company’s own modern and high-tech facilities.”
