Skills for Security (SfS) has begun the first induction on its new pilot scheme as part of a new partnership with specialist security solutions provider, Corps Security.
The scheme, ‘Team Leader and Supervisor Apprenticeship’, can be delivered flexibly to meet specific business needs with the curriculum, covering seven major aspects from organisational culture and strategy to self and project management. The course allows learners to reflect on past experiences, learn from them, and be prepared for the more challenging days they may face in their career.
Corps Security were keen to make use of their Levy fund for this apprenticeship and chose SfS to develop a bespoke package that suited their organisational requirements. A round table discussion with Corps Security’s senior management uncovered their needs and priorities for this apprenticeship which will be delivered via shorter, more frequent remote learning sessions. This format will not affect the high quality teaching, but in fact aims to increase engagement due to being more accessible.
Pardeep Singh, Training & Development Advisor at Corps Security, remarked: “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.”
Ashley Scott, Tutor, Skills for Security, added: “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.”
Corps Security commenced training March 2021.
