Skills for Security (SfS) has begun the first induction as part of a partnership with the security contractor Corps Security. SfS says that the scheme, ‘Team Leader and Supervisor Apprenticeship’ can be delivered flexibly to meet specific business needs. The curriculum covers seven fields from organisational culture and strategy to self and project management. The aim; for learners to reflect on past experiences, learn from them, and be prepared for what they may face in their career.
Corps sought to use their Levy fund for this apprenticeship and chose SfS to develop a bespoke package. A round table discussion with The Corps’s senior management went through their priorities for this apprenticeship which will be delivered via shorter, more frequent remote learning sessions.
Pardeep Singh, Training & Development Advisor at Corps Security said: “This is an exciting opportunity to utilise the apprenticeship route to support and upskill our colleagues, which is one of the company’s key priorities. Skills for Security have demonstrated a proactive approach in supporting us to launch this pilot apprenticeship. We look forward to working with the team going forward and offer further development opportunities to our colleagues.”
And Ashley Scott, Tutor, Skills for Security said: “I often see students’ expressions change throughout workshops; when they either learn something new that will make their day-to-day role as a leader easier, or perhaps when a commonly perceived ‘tough’ aspect of leadership is made simple & clear – such as conflict or change management.
“It’s really refreshing that we currently have learners ranging from first time supervisors, to operations directors. The course is designed to be as interactive as possible – driving learner engagement at every opportunity.”
