The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has added two extra dates to its ‘Apprenticeship Breakfast Briefings’ series following the success of the first meeting held in Birmingham on December 7. 

Hosted in partnership with Skills for Security, the free-to-attend briefings will be held in January 2017 and plans to discuss the apprenticeship levy in detail; providing advice on how Skills for Security and the BSIA can help employers adapt to these changes due to be funded from April next year. 

Simon Banks, founder of the Apprentices for Fire and Security Programme and one of the featured speakers at the Birmingham event, commented on the success of the meeting: “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.

“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.”

The dates and venues for the additional briefings are:

  • Tuesday, January 10 2017, 8:30am– 10:30am – The Atrium, UBM, 240 Blackfriars Rd, London SE1 8BF. 
  • Thursday, January 19 2017, 8:30am – 10:30am – The Holiday Inn Runcorn, Wood Ln, Runcorn WA7 3HA.

A series of free-to-attend and informative breakfast briefings hosted by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) are set to bring crucial information to employers in the fire and security sectors ahead of important changes to the way apprenticeships are funded in England and Wales. 

In partnership with Skills for Security, the first is scheduled to be held in Birmingham, with two further briefings are planned for early January 2017 in London and the north of England.   

Peter Sherry, interim director general at Skills for Security said: “At the end of 2016, the government’s funding framework for apprenticeships is due to change, with the introduction of a new ‘trailblazer’ operating model and apprenticeship levy. With many employers within the security and fire sectors set to be affected by these changes, the BSIA and Skills for Security wanted to provide valuable advice to help them understand how these changes will affect their business.” 

David Wilkinson, director of Technical Services at the BSIA, and Simon Banks, group managing director at CSL Dualcom and founder of the Apprentices for Fire and Security programme will join Sherry as speakers for the briefings; with topics under discussion include an introduction to the apprenticeship levy, how the BSIA and Skills for Security can help employers adapt to these changes, an explanation of what’s changing, and insight into the value of apprenticeships and the benefits for business.  

Delegates will have the opportunity to ask questions and seek advice from the expert panel on issues specifically relevant to their business.
