Skills for Security is among the first cohort of training providers to offer the all-new Fire, Emergency and Security Systems apprenticeship standard. The apprenticeship focuses on employer-designed standards to ensure that the training and assessment apprentices receive meets precise industry standards. It’s set at Level 3 and mapped out as a three-year programme designed to replace the previous Security Systems frameworks, which were offered at both Levels 2 and 3.
Skills for Security aims to continue as an industry-leading performer in apprenticeship delivery. Data analysis shows that the organisation performs well above the industry averages in areas such as overall and timely achievement rates and retention rates in all age bands.
Peter Sherry, interim director of Skills for Security, commented: “I believe that the changes brought in with the new Fire, Emergency and Security Systems apprenticeship standard will result in many positive outcomes for our industry, not least in terms of ensuring that all apprentices complete at Level 3 following a comprehensive programme that builds and improves on the previous framework.”
Sherry added: “It’s important to me that Skills for Security leads the way in adapting to and embracing changes to apprenticeship delivery. This is why I’m delighted to invite both Apprenticeship Levy and non-Apprenticeship Levy paying employers to contact us with a view to arranging the sign-up of their new apprentice recruits.”
