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

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.

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.

With the next Total Security Summit taking place on March 13th & 14th at the Radisson Blu London Stansted, we thought we’d give you a few reasons to book your place at the event nice and early.

Put simply, if you’re looking for a security industry event in the London area, you’ve found it.

First and foremost, the Total Security Summit provides a platform for highly-targeted one-to-one meetings between industry professionals and trusted suppliers. But it also comes with a full programme of educational seminars, allowing all attendees to increase their industry knowledge and develop their skill sets while on site.

Plus, there’s full hospitality throughout, including lunches, drinks reception and an evening gala dinner, offering copious networking opportunities to build new business relationships.

But we think the enduring success of the event, which will be celebrating its 20th year in 2017, is best summed up by industry suppliers who have attended previously:

“I found this to be one of the best events I have attended in 25 years of employment within the security industry.”


“I attended the Total Security Summit for the first time this year. It was well planned, informative, and the ratio of suppliers to delegates was great unlike other events where there are hundreds of suppliers and little time to meet everyone.”

ABC Electrification

“A thoroughly professional and well organised event that was valuable to the business.”

The security industry is in the midst of a paradigm shift where technology has started to pave the way for the future.

With the large, ever-expanding pool of security devices and systems now available on the market comes a number of challenges.

Alongside the increased threat of terrorism, cyberattacks and more, now more than ever, the industry needs to come together to think differently to combat emerging threats and ensure total security protection.

With this in mind, we created the Total Security Summit, a unique tailor-made event for security professionals that takes place twice a year.



As a delegate, your carefully planned two-day itinerary ensures your time spent at the Total Security Summit is worthwhile: Meet, share and connect with businesses relevant to your current and forthcoming projects in our matchmade face-to-face meetings.

Learn best practice strategies with industry influencers from Smith Consultancy Int, Alcumus Group, Nedap Security Management, ISMI and Deutsche Post DHL Group via our comprehensive seminar programme.
