Skills for Security opens a new training centre in North London as part of its national expansion. The new training centre in Watford provides apprenticeships and pre-apprenticeships in the fire and security sectors.
After recently opening a training centre in Glasgow, Skills for Security continues expanding its high-quality apprenticeship and training program in the North London region. With Glasgow, Warrington, Birmingham and now Watford, the organisation is catering on a by-population basis and have plans to become more regional as it scales.
The centre has 4000 square feet of classrooms and workshop space and is equipped with the latest products and technologies to give apprentices the best start in their working lives. The workshops have been designed to create a realistic working environment for the engineers of tomorrow.
David Scott, Managing Director, Skills for Security, said: “The opening of our latest centre in North London is a significant milestone for us. We are expanding nationwide to train apprentices from all areas of the country and meet the demand for developing the next generation of fire & security engineers.“It is vital that we plug the skills shortage in our industry by investing in work-based training and development, which will help businesses to grow and help the industry keep up with technological change. Increasing our centres and accessibility to deliver this training is a huge positive.
“We have had fantastic support from our partners in the opening of our new site, with the likes of CSL, Hikvision, Texecom, Apollo and TDSi all having donated large volumes of product to support the learners in their journeys.
“This move enhances our coverage of the UK to reduce travel for our Installers and their students,” concludes David.
The new centre opened on Monday 12 September and can be located at Axis 4, Rhodes Way, Watford, WD24 4YW. For more information, visit the Skills for Security website.
