Tavcom Training and Banham Academy offer BTEC Level 3 Training Pathway to Trailblazer Apprentices

Tavcom Training have partnered with Banham Academy to provide a professional training pathway for apprentices on the new trailblazer scheme.

The trailblazer apprenticeship standard for the fire, security and emergency systems industry is approved by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. Now, Banham Academy and Tavcom Training are going further with the inclusion of professional qualifications that will benefit apprentices and the wider security industry.

The BTEC Level 3 courses developed by Tavcom Training delivers comprehensive security training during the three-year apprenticeship, through a combination of online and classroom teaching, practical exercises, assessments and exams.

Paul Tennent CTSP, executive director at Tavcom Training, stated: “Working in partnership with Banham Academy, we are ensuring apprentices gain an essential understanding of theory combined with practical industry experience to kick-start their careers. Meanwhile, the security industry benefits from a steady stream of fully trained and qualified engineers at the end of the process.”

The first cohort of Banham Academy trailblazer apprentices has already embarked on the BTEC Level 3 training pathway.

Kevin Faulkner, Banham Academy Operations Director, explained: "We are delighted to be working alongside Tavcom Training to ensure quality materials and practices are available to support the delivery of our apprenticeships.

“Achieving the Tavcom qualifications is a great way to measure the progress of our learners and the accreditation provided motivates them on the pathway to completing their apprenticeship."

Paul Tennent added: “We are proud to be supporting young engineers and helping to bring new, fully-qualified talent to the sector. We also believe it’s vital that, ultimately, all trailblazer participants have a level playing field to compete on.

“Our aim is to raise standards in general across the scheme.”
