The centre offers a fully equipped workshop which includes fire and security systems equipment from the top brands in the industry and two new IT suites which include state of the art computers able to deliver the highest specification of cyber security training. SfS describes itself as the largest deliverer of systems apprenticeships with nearly 200 learners.
Nick Grewcock added: “Our training centre is going from strength to strength. We have taken on-board many suggestions from learners to enhance their learning experience and the newly equipped centre and new support staff has enabled us to deliver high quality training in a way that benefits the learners and employers and over the coming year we will be adding additional qualifications and short courses.”
