Free security guard training this January

 

03 January 2018



Interested in a security guard job?

We're offering residents the opportunity to complete a Security Industry Authority (SIA) course this January. This usually costs £500 - but we're offering to you free of charge! It will give you all the skills you need for a job as a security guard, as well as a guaranteed interview at the end.

Where is it?

You will be required to attend a training centre in Croydon, South London. 

What will I learn?

This is a 12-day course (starting 29 January), which includes:
  • Customer service – how to deliver good customer service, health and safety, and how to interact with customers.
  • Employability skills – including how to give the best interview, looking for jobs based on your skills, and how to apply for jobs.
  • Door supervision – training provided by the SIA

What do I get at the end of the course?

You’ll earn yourself an official SIA badge, which shows you are certified to work within the security industry.

You’ll also be guaranteed a job interview with TSS Total Security Services – who supply security guards to retail stores across the UK. Interviews will be held in February.

Am I eligible?

To apply for this course, you must:
  • Be currently unemployed,
  • Live in London,
  • Have the right to work in the UK.
You’ll also need to provide:
  • Proof of address,
  • Passport or birth certificate,
