Skills for Security works in partnership with carefully selected organisations, to support companies in the private security sector.

Security Training Authority

The Security Training Authority provides accredited qualifications worldwide. A member of both the International Professional Security Association and the British Security Industry Association, its mission is to endorse and accredit qualifications and CPD programmes which sit outside the national framework developed by themselves and their members; in return, the Security Training Authority provides auditable third-party quality assurance to training providers and security practitioners. Its partnership with Skills for Security enables both organisations to be the one-stop shop for the accreditation and endorsement of qualifications based on UK standards for quality. Skills for Security members can also deliver qualifications owned by the Security Training Authority, subject to application, including the popular Level 2 award for Healthcare Security Officers.

Awarding organisations

Skills for Security is accredited by City & Guilds, Highfield, NCFE and Pearson – and is a Matrix-accredited organisation.
