Banham Academy launches Tavcom-developed BTEC Level 3 training pathway for trailblazer apprentices

Security training provider Tavcom Training has developed a professional training pathway for apprentices through the new trailblazer scheme.

Taking place at the Banham Academy the BTEC Level 3 courses will provide online and classroom teaching, practical exercises, assessments and exams during the three-year apprenticeship.

The trailblazer apprenticeship standard for the fire, security and emergency systems is approved by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

“Working in partnership with Banham Academy we are ensuring apprentices gain an essential understanding of theory combined with practical industry experience to kick-start their careers,” said Paul Tennent CTSP, executive director at Tavcom Training, part of Linx International Group. “Meanwhile, the security industry benefits from a steady stream of fully trained and qualified engineers at the end of the process.

“It’s vital that ultimately all trailblazer participants have a level playing field to compete on.” Paul Tennent, executive director, Tavcom Training

“We are proud to be supporting young engineers and helping to bring new, fully-qualified talent to the sector. We also believe it’s vital that ultimately all trailblazer participants have a level playing field to compete on. Our aim is to raise standards in general across the scheme.”

Said Kevin Faulkner, Banham Academy operations director: “We are delighted to be working alongside Tavcom Training to ensure quality materials and practices are available to support the delivery of our apprenticeships. Achieving the Tavcom qualifications is a great way to measure the progress of our learners and the accreditation provided motivates them on the pathway to completing their apprenticeship. ”

The first cohort of apprentices on the Banham Academy trailblazer has already begun the BTEC Level 3 training pathway.
