Established in 2019, Skills for Jobs (SfJ) was setup to provide specialist training courses for people wishing to start or develop their career within the Security or Hospitality sectors.
We’re an approved Security Industry Authority (SIA) training provider, we are quality assured, and approved under Trident / Laser Learning Awards and the Institute of Conflict Management (ICM), which together means the training you receive on our courses is second to none.
With a combined operational experience of over 200 years between our training team, we don’t just talk the talk! You will only receive the very best, up to date, knowledge, skills and training, ensuring you’re both properly prepared for any course exams, and for your actual role.
The operational experience of our trainers brings the content of our courses to life, providing you with real life examples and realistic scenarios that you may encounter in your role. One major advantage of using real-world experienced trainers is, they can deliver course content from the prospective and understanding of somebody who has actually done the job, rather than someone who has just read the book.
Skills For Jobs takes the responsibility of delivering appropriate and realistic training very seriously. This is evidenced through the development and approval of our own Physical Intervention training system ‘Shield PI’, quality assured by the Institute of Conflict Management (ICM) and approved by the Security Industry Authority (SIA) for delivery as part of the Door Supervisor SIA licence linked training (Module 4 at Level 2).
We’re pleased to boast, due to the high standards of our training, it’s recognised SfJ generally produces a higher level of candidate. As such, we work in association with a number of local and national employment agencies who recognise our expertise, and regularly frequent our courses as guests, speaking with learners regarding employment opportunities available with them. They are eager to interview anyone who has completed their training through Skills For Jobs.
More Information About Shield Physical Intervention (SPI):
The SPI programmes have been designed, developed and are delivered by people who have operational experience in situations that frequented violence. Appropriately named ‘Shield Physical Intervention’ or ‘SPI’ for short. The purpose of the name is to signify protection (to be shielded against), violence happening to them in the work place by delivering cutting edge knowledge and skills that are both effective and quickly learnt. It also protects you (shields against) the Law, in regards to litigation, as in it properly prepares you by not only fully understand the Law relating to the use of force, medical implications, duty of care etc, but also how to articulate yourself to a court of Law – should the situation ever arise.
