Chubb has been recognised by two high-profile institutions for its commitment to developing apprentice training and for its new in-house training framework for established engineers.

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has given its mark of approval on the Trailblazer Apprenticeship Standard, which Chubb had a leading role in developing. The standard is designed to create a definitive framework of the skills, knowledge and behaviours that employers would expect from employees at the end of their apprenticeship. It aims to promote the role and reputation of apprenticeships so they are regarded similarly to a university degree. The standard is a government initiative that includes over 1,000 employers from 70 different industries.

"Businesses are better placed than anyone to train the next generation of workers and will help us deliver 3 million high-quality apprenticeships by 2020," said Nick Bowles, Member of Parliament and Skills Minister at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. "By designing apprenticeships, organisations like the Fire and Security Association and their group of employers are ensuring that young, talented people develop the skills needed to progress their careers and drive businesses forward."

In addition, City & Guilds (C&G), a Royal Charter Institute, has granted Chubb a prestigious C&G accreditation for its new CORE Skills training framework for security and fire detection and alarm engineers. Designed to support lifelong learning, the program features six compulsory modules and three-yearly refresher courses to ensure engineers' technology knowledge and business process understanding is kept up-to-date.

"It's increasingly evident that industry training has to meet external benchmarks, and the accreditation confirms to Chubb's existing and potential customers that our engineers are appropriately trained to provide the very best service," said David Millett, head of skills development at Chubb. "The industry is changing all the time, and it is imperative that our training reflects this to enable engineer and apprentice development."
