SSAIB in Attendance for Access Training's New Workshop Unveiling

The SSAIB were delighted to attend the opening of the new practical skills facility at Access Training’s Skill Academy on Monday morning.

SSAIB sales and marketing manager Andrew Brown was invited along to the official opening of the new Security Systems Workshop at Access Training’s Gateshead base, with Lord John Stevens - formerly chief inspector of Northumbria Police, commissioner of London Metropolitan Police and the current chairman of the Protector Group – on hand to open the new facility.

The unveiling event for the new training resource allowed attendees to meet the training team, view the workshop facilities and gain a brief understanding of the new apprenticeship standard – all within the grounds of what Access Training’s managing director, Malcolm Armstrong, believes is the “foremost practical training facility for the sector in the north of England.”

Malcolm said: “Through donating a wide range of equipment, employers (and suppliers) have helped us to create what we think is now the foremost practical training facility for the sector in the north of England.

“This facility will help us to train apprentices for years to come, while also helping us to prepare apprentice for new end-point assessments which will include them carrying out complex practical activities in examination conditions.”
