Following the success of an initial breakfast briefing, the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has announced two additional briefing events, which aim to help employers in the security sector understand the forthcoming changes to the way apprenticeships will be funded.

To be held in January 2017, the free-to-attend briefings, which are hosted in partnership with Skills for Security ? the industry?s sector skills body ? will discuss the apprenticeship levy in more detail and provide advice on how the BSIA and Skills for Security can help employers adapt to these changes.

With the Government recently confirming the details as to how apprenticeships will be funded from April next year, the BSIA?s series of breakfast briefings help employers in the security sector understand what?s changing and how their businesses can benefit from employing apprentices.

The first briefing took place at The Holiday Inn in Birmingham and was well attended by a variety of businesses. The event featured presentations from Peter Sherry, Interim Director General at Skills for Security, David Wilkinson, Director of Technical Services at the BSIA, and Simon Banks, Group Managing Director at CSL Dualcom and the founder of the Apprentices for Fire and Security Programme, which has placed more than 3000 young apprentices into careers since 2011.


* It was great to see such a fantastic turn out at the briefing, with delegates keen to find out more about the new apprenticeship framework and how they can bring apprentices on board their business? said Simon Banks. Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to build on the skills of the younger generation and pave the way for a positive career, ultimately contributing to the overall success of a business; therefore, it?s vital that employers understand that a service industry without skilled engineers is restricting their business and the entire value chain. These breakfast briefings provide vital information about changes to apprenticeships, how new funds can best be utilised and the wide array of training available to the industry?
