Partnership Working is the way forward…

Following government decisions in relation to departmental responsibilities,
Apprenticeship funding streams have been rationalised to provide a smaller
management base for the Skills Agency Contract Managers.  Small companies such as ours have been required to enter a new era in terms of contract management and to this end we are pleased to announce that we have chosen to form a Partnership with Chamber Training (Humber) Ltd.  Our decision to do this is based upon the quality, credibility and sustainability of Chamber Training and an excellent working relationship already in place.

As an Employer (or learner) you will experience no change in current practices and delivery however, The Skills Funding Agency will continue to seek your opinion through the Framework for Excellence surveys and our Recruitment Manager will guide you through this process if necessary.

We feel that the Partnership with Chamber Training will provide a solid platform for moving forward and delivering quality training across the Humber sub region and we hope we can enjoy the continued support of you – our valued Employers.

Spotlight on the Employer: Fire Protection Centre

The 7th February marked the start of Apprenticeship Week 2011 a national event organised by the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS).  Apprentices, employers, training providers and all stakeholders involved with Apprenticeship programmes are staging regional events to celebrate and promote the skills and talents developed through Apprenticeships and the value they add to successful businesses.

fire protection centre
Fire Protection Centre Limited based on Atkinsons Way on the Foxhills Industrial Estate in Scunthorpe is one North Lincolnshire Company that needs no convincing of the benefits vocational apprenticeships can bring. The Company has embraced the concept for several years employing local young people who with the help of external training agencies are provided both formal and on the job training to acquire the specialist skills and qualifications required to support the Company’s growth and ongoing diversification into online trading.

Fire Protection Centre has benefitted from the Apprenticeship scheme and within the last 12 months, Emily Thackerey, a Business Administration Apprentice (pictured left) has successfully passed her Level 2 framework with SouthBank Training Ltd.  Emily has now been given a permanent position as a Sales Administrator and is now working towards her Level 3 Advance Apprenticeship.

Fire Protection Centre has come a long way since it began trading in 1999. Its core business is as a stockist and distributor of Automatic Fire Sprinklers, Control Devices and flow control products. Fire Protection Centre is now firmly established as one of the largest independent suppliers of these products to the UK and Ireland.

In addition to serving this traditional trade market the Company also recognised the need to move with the times and 2 years ago, utilising its expertise in fire safety, launched its first Internet e-commerce website Fire and Safety Centre offering a comprehensive range of fire safety and prevention products to both business and domestic end users.

Fire Protection Centre’s Managing Director Barrie Holden has a clear vision for the company and its future.

“ As a business we recognised some 2 years ago that to we had to move with the times and diversify our business interests. Implementing this strategy has enabled us to both safeguard existing jobs and increase employment in the local area despite the difficult economic conditions and the impact of the recession. With the support of a first class workforce we have made considerable progress in achieving our strategy of establishing a sustainable online business model focused on offering comprehensive product solutions for the fire protection, safety and security of life and property in the workplace, at home and at leisure. We will continue to look for further market
opportunities that fit the profile established under the Supply Centre Network umbrella to ensure our continued growth.”
