Skills for Security joins project to align Indian and UK Standards.

Skills for Security (SfS) has welcomed their Indian counterparts in the start of a series of projects designed to map the National Occupational Standards of India to those of the UK.

The UK is recognised internationally for its standards, skill certifications and working practices and Skills for Security has joined a project with the British Council UK-India Education and Research Initiative to benchmark qualifications and National Occupational Standards to produce transnational standards.

Skills for Security will review and provide a gap analysis on security job roles which will allow for the development of an international standard. This will ensure a standard of excellence in training in India equivalent to that in the UK.

The work force in the industrialized world is expected to decline by 4% in the next 20 years while in India it will increase by 32% due to the young population and the aim is to align global standards to facilitate the international mobility of a skilled workforce.

Delegates from India visited the UK and SfS last week to review qualifications and job roles and to take the opportunity to gain an international perspective of Skills for Security’s training courses and learning approaches.

Skills for Security as the developer of National Occupational Standards for the security industry will lead on certain security job roles to map UK and Indian security National Occupational Standards and is looking forward to collaborating with its Indian colleagues on qualifications in the security industry.
