Skills for Security Apprenticeship week 2024

Here’s what some of our employers say about the benefits of Apprentices to their businesses and why they chose to work with us.

“Barlows UK Ltd have for many years trained our own electrical apprentices, allowing us to grow our business with career progression from apprentice to current directors. However we were struggling to recruit qualified Fire and Security engineers across the country, knowing that the apprenticeship scheme works for us in the electrical field we set out to find a training partner for Fire and Security. This led us to our partnership with Skills for Security.

For the past two years we have recruited fire and Security apprentices as well, SFS deliver the training from their Warrington and Watford training centres on block release whilst our apprentices work and learn from our engineers on a daily basis. Matthew Scott our Fire and Security Director comments 'This successful partnership is allowing us to train the very best Fire and Security engineers, our apprentices are progressing well, we have regular monitoring meetings with SFS and looking forward to the our first successes on this scheme in the not so distant future.”

Scutum Group is proud to have invested in the apprenticeship pathway over the past few years in association with Skills for Security. The challenges of recruiting skilled engineers means that apprenticeships are vital in developing the next generation of Fire & Security engineers. As a company, we are proud of all our apprentices, and look forward to continuing the journey with them all.

“EDSB is experiencing huge growth at the moment and our apprenticeship scheme is a key part of our strategy to develop a team of talented, multi-skilled engineers for the future. It’s fantastic to see people learning and growing and progressing in their careers in Fire and security. The apprenticeship programme is a really structured pathway and provides both classroom and practical training as well as peer group support. We chose Skills for Security as our provider as they understand what training our apprentices need and work closely with both us as an employer and the apprentices themselves whilst they are on their learning journey. They are skilled at developing each individual and ensuring they succeed not only in the classroom, but in a work environment as well. I would highly recommend Skills for Security for anyone considering a career in the Fire and security industry.”
