Partnership ensures more accessibility to West Midlands apprenticeship training

Training-partner-19In a bid to make apprenticeship training more accessible in the West Midlands, a new partnership has been announced between Skills for Security and BMet College.

The Fire and Security Apprenticeship three-year training course will see BMet deliver as much of the programme as they can; including Health and Safety, Electrical Principals and Basic Installation.

Skills for Security will then come in to play where experience or resources may be lacking, to deliver specialist fire and security. College staff will also be encouraged to attend classes and as a result will gain CPD points.

Jeremy Clay, Business Development Manager, BMet said: “BMet is pleased to be working with Skills for Security in the delivery of apprenticeships in Fire Emergency and Security Systems across the West Midlands. This partnership allows employers in the region to develop new and existing staff at our James Watt Campus, which is synonymous with engineering and construction excellence.

“The partnership will allow us to expand our offer of apprenticeship programmes into an industry which is developing rapidly as technology evolves, and allows us to ensure that linking with such industry experts will help us to provide new and exciting programmes for our learners and employers.”

David Scott, Managing Director, Skills for Security added: “I couldn’t be happier to announce a partnership between Skills for Security and BMet. Not only will this allow younger people to know what it means to work as a fire and security engineer, it will also create an industry full of opportunity and growth which desperately needs skilled engineers.

“By partnering with local colleges, our goal is to widen participation in apprenticeship schemes and also make training more accessible for both employers and those interested in apprenticeships. Together we can help bridge the skills gap and create a sustainable pipeline of engineers.”
