Kings and Skills for Security Announce New Partnership

Skills for Security is to partner with Kings Secure Technologies to deliver apprenticeships as part of a new scheme announced today.

From 2020, Skills for Security will manage, develop and deliver apprenticeship training utilising Kings Secure Technologies’ training facility in Bradford, with Kings apprentices being the first to benefit from the new scheme. The location of the centre also offers up the opportunity to allow apprenticeship training to be more accessible in the North East and Yorkshire region.

Kelly Fisher, Chief Human Resources Officer, Kings Secure Technologies said: “It has always been a priority for Kings Secure Technologies to be at the leading edge of best practice in the Fire & Security industry. The Kings Training Academy, delivered by Skills for Security, will help to formalise the training structure we already have in place and give our apprentices a clear career path and route to becoming fully trained, more confident and giving them long term prospects in the industry.”

David Scott, Managing Director, Skills for Security said: “Giving apprentices the necessary skills to begin their careers is shaping the future of our Industry. Time and time again we compare the skills shortage with the rate of Industry growth, and it is evident we need more engineers. I am thrilled to be working with Kings Training Academy, bringing more apprentices to the North East and Yorkshire region combining our skilled tutors with their modern and high-tech facilities.”
