Skills for Security and SecuriGroup forge strategic partnership

SKILLS FOR Security has forged a new strategic partnership with SecuriGroup whereby the skills body will become the latter’s preferred fire and security apprenticeship provider. Going forward, Skills for Security will be working with SecuriGroup on assisting the security business during the recruitment process for new apprenticeship positions and also on ensuring that learners receive maximum support throughout their course.

Skills for Security is recognised as the leading fire and security apprenticeship training provider in the UK. The organisation currently supports over 400 apprentices across its centres located in Warrington, Birmingham, Scotland and Oxford, with its Watford centre opening in mid-2022.

Given the huge skills shortage in the fire and security industry’s at present, Skills for Security works with employers right across the UK to provide the next generation of engineers with the necessary tools and knowledge they require for a successful career.

Ranked in the top 1% of UK security companies approved by the Security Industry Authority, SecuriGroup is an award-winning security business specialising in the provision of security guarding, augmented security and systems solutions, mobile patrolling and key holding, events security and close protection services.

Speaking about the new partnership, David Scott (managing director at Skills for Security) informed Security Matters: “I’ve known David Waddell at SecuriGroup for some time now and I’m really delighted that SecuriGroup is choosing us to help grow and develop its workforce.”

Waddell, the technical director at Glasgow-based SecuriGroup, responded: “SecuriGroup’s ever-expanding Electronic Systems Department uses only in-house engineering staff and, as such, we are continually looking to bring in that next generation of talent. Skills for Security provides a service which not only affords SecuriGroup apprentices the best available start in their career, but also meets business requirements and minimises disruptions when it comes to client installations. I’m looking forward to working with David and the team.”
