Apprenticeship Frameworks

Skills for Security is the sole designated Issuing Authority for English Apprenticeship frameworks for occupations in Security.

Apprenticeship frameworks for Security currently encompasses the Security SystemsProviding Security Services and Locksmithing frameworks, which have been issued and are available to view, but also includes responsibility for any future, additional frameworks that may be developed for Security sector occupations.


The apprenticeship frameworks provide information to employers about the qualifications that make up the Apprenticeship.

As the English Issuing Authority, Skills for Security is directly accountable to the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills and this role is separate from Skills for Security’s established work as the Sector Skills Body for the private security industry.

If you have an idea for a new framework for the Security sector, or guidance on how to submit an expression of interest contact Skills for Security on 01905 744000 or at
