Skills for Security (SfS) has embarked on a new partnership with Corps Security to build a new pilot scheme called the ‘Team Leader and Supervisor Apprenticeship.’ The new scheme reportedly covers seven major aspects from organisational culture and strategy to self and project management, which can be delivered flexibly to meet specific business needs with the curriculum.
“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,” said Pardeep Singh, Training & Development Advisor at Corps Security. “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.”
Corps Security were keen to make use of their levy fund for this apprenticeship and chose SfS to develop a bespoke package. After a round table discussion with Corps Security’s senior management, the team uncovered their needs and priorities for this apprenticeship which henceforth will be delivered via shorter, more frequent remote learning sessions.
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.”
