UK security industry backs drive to increase apprenticeships

Launched at IFSEC in May this year, the security industry’s new ‘100 in 100’ initiative has already had huge success, and the National Security Inspectorate is using July to explain once more why there has never been a better time to hire an apprentice.

100 in 100 looks to introduce 100 or more new apprenticeships in the UK security sector between IFSEC International and the Security Excellence Awards Ceremony (happening on 23rd October).

Supporting the 2013 campaign are CSL DualCom and Skills for Security as well as the major inspectorates — the NSI and the Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board.

This Government is on the side of employers who invest in the skills of their people,” said Matthew Hancock, skills minister, “We’re working with businesses to ensure that the apprenticeships programme is rigorous, responsive, and absolutely delivers on the high-quality training which employers really value.”
