Apprenticeship training – what's in it for you?
What the learner gets:
The EAS programme is a proposed two year vocational training course that combines on the job experience with a professional and industry wide recognised qualification. It is designed to ensure all achievers are trained to the highest standards, with the right skill levels for the future.
All EAS apprentices benefit from a structured learning and achievement model based on their actual work-based learning and applied competence in the workplace. Our apprenticeship training scheme is tailored to match the apprentice's own progression, rather than teaching them to simply pass an exam or assessment.

- Level 2 Certificate in Knowledge of Electronic Security and Emergency Systems (1853-02) Level 2 Technical Certificate
- Level 2/3 NVQ Certificate/Diploma in Providing Electronic Security and Emergency Systems (2882-02)
- Functional skills as required
Benefits for the employer:
- For 16 to 18 year olds, the scheme is normally fully funded. A contribution is required for 19 to 24* year olds.
- A full collaborative partnership between you and us. Our trained and qualified staff are there to support you too.
- A learner review programme where you are included and not ignored.
- A skilled and ultimately qualified employee with usable skills that support your business throughout their training and beyond.

Frequently asked questions
Yes, there is normally full funding available for apprentices aged 16 to 18 years for their training. All the employer needs to pay for is their salary and travel. However, due to reduced government funding there are limited spaces for 19 to 24 year old learners available, which are only partially funded at approximately 50%.
Whilst we recommend pay scales to be in line with the JIB published rates, it is entirely your decision. There are also published government guidelines for employers taking on apprentices. For more information, go online to: www.apprenticeships.org.uk/Employers.aspx
