Banham Academy apprentice makes the grade

Passing this EPA is no mean feat as it takes place over two days and involves formal measurement of practical skills; knowledge and behaviours via a professional discussion.

Kevin Faulkner, Head of Banham Academy said: “Elliot’s achievement in passing the Apprenticeship Standard through our End Point Assessment Centre is a proud moment for us all at Banham. Not only is Elliot the first Banham apprentice to pass, but his achievement showcases the quality of talent that is being cultivated through our specialist training programme. The level of skill and knowledge being demonstrated by young apprentices like Elliot is setting a new benchmark in the fire and security industry.

“I strongly encourage all employers in our industry to take on more apprentices, there are so many capable young people who are motivated and committed to bettering their futures who simply require an opportunity. These home-grown, talented, young apprentices are truly shaping the future of our industry.”
