Since it was founded in 2011, the 100 in 100 apprentice drive has been listed as the most successful apprentice awareness campaign for the security industry having placed over 3,000 apprentices in the sector. The scheme has recently been rebranded Apprentices for Security and a new website www.apprentices4sec.com will be launching soon to make finding apprentices even easier.
The Apprentices for Security scheme and website has received backing from The Rt. Hon Nicky Morgan MP, Cento’s local MP who visited the recruitment company earlier this year. “I am delighted that this scheme and website have been set up to facilitate apprenticeships in the security industry. As the government is fully committed to starting three million apprenticeships in the next five years, Apprentices for Security will play its part in helping us reach this ambitious target”.
Brett Ennals, CEO of Cento has worked closely with Simon Banks, Group MD and founder of CSL DualCom to deliver a website that will become a one-stop shop for apprenticeships in security. Brett outlined what visitors can expect to find on the website; “If you are looking for an apprenticeship or seeking an apprentice, this new website has been designed for you. It will provide an opportunity for individuals to register an interest in pursuing a career in security. It will help businesses identify ideal candidates to train as apprentices and fill the skills shortage gap.”
Simon Banks added: “The skills shortage issue affects our entire industry and with this website we hope that we will soon be boasting a skilled workforce committed to a career in security. We work in an innovative, dynamic and prosperous sector and it is essential this is communicated to a wider audience.”
