With over one million unemployed young people nationally, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service’s engagement with Apprenticeship programmes offers a way of unlocking talent within existing staff and our local communities whilst ensuring that we have a workforce equipped with the skills needed for today and tomorrow.
Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service will use Apprenticeships to offer a comprehensive programme of learning on which to build a skilled and flexible workforce. The Apprenticeship framework consists of nationally recognised qualifications that combine work-based training and vocational education.
Other apprenticeship frameworks have been identified that will provide structured training and development for job roles within the organisation, which could include ICT, vehicle maintenance, purchasing and supplies, finance, catering, business management and administration.
