Event Security Company Benefits from Free Workforce Training

Kodiak Security has benefited from upskilling their workforce for free through the Skills Support for the Workforce training programme.

Based in Great Yarmouth, the security company provides support to some of New Anglia’s most popular music and sporting events.

The ESF funded programme, provides flexible skills training for staff in a wide range of industries from health and social care through to spectator safety.

Staff at Kodiak Security received coaching and training in customer service and safety skills achieving a Spectator Safety Level 2 qualification.

Formalising their learning was also a huge motivator for staff who were aware that the qualification will provide more employment opportunities, better knowledge and increase confidence and customer service skills at events.

Seetec partner; The Tess Group, delivered the specialised training commenting “Previously, staff had a relatively mixed knowledge of spectator safety.   We worked closely with Kodiak’s management team to ensure that ‘risk assessing’ potential problem situations at events was something staff were competent in real life with.

Kodiak Security have found the training hugely beneficial with participants keen to take on more responsibility and mentor new recruits whilst others have expressed an interest in leadership related roles or the SIA badge.

The training has sparked an interest in future growth and participants have a clear vision for what they wish to do in the coming years”.

Seetec, has been working in partnership with the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to help businesses in the Norfolk and Suffolk region to boost the skills of their workforce through the Skills Support for the Workforce programme.

Funding for the programme continues until March 2019 and businesses interested in developing their staff should email enquiries.ess@seetec.co.uk
