Apprenticeships

Skills for Security offers apprenticeships to those of aged 16 or over, living in England and not in full-time education.

Apprenticeships enable people to learn while they work alongside experienced staff, gaining job-specific skills, while earning a wage and receiving holiday pay. Apprentices study towards a related qualification (usually one day a week) and apprenticeships take between 1 to 5 years to complete, depending on their level.

Fire, Emergency and Security Systems apprenticeship

The Fire, Emergency and Security Systems apprenticeship helps people design, install, commission and maintain electronic systems in and outside simple and complex premises to protect individuals, homes and properties from risk and danger.

Team Leader/Supervisor apprenticeship

The Team Leader/Supervisor apprenticeship standard is at Level 3 and is perfect for those members of staff whose responsibilities include managing teams or for those who are looking to move into this type of job role. The Team Leader/Supervisor apprenticeship can be specifically tailored to the security industry, making it highly cost-effective.

Customer Service apprenticeship

The Customer Service apprenticeship standard is at Level 2 and is ideal for those who work in roles that involve dealing with members of the public. This could include those who work in manned guarding or contact centre positions, for example. The Customer Service apprenticeship can be specifically tailored to the security industry, making it highly cost-effective.

Apprenticeships help and advice

Many organisations don’t benefit as much as they could from the apprenticeship levy, often held back by assumptions of how ‘apprenticeships used to be’. We can help organisations to develop apprenticeship strategies that maximise the use of their apprenticeship levy fund and transform how their organisation approaches apprenticeships.
