We are now able to offer fire and security apprenticeship training in four locations across England; Warrington, Birmingham, Bradford and Southport. These innovative partnerships were developed based on the feedback we received from many of our employers earlier in the year, where it was highlighted that there was a definite need for more training providers across the whole of England. The purpose of these partnerships was to make training more accessible, flexible and affordable for our employers.
