Security Systems Apprentices return from Denmark with Skills for Security and the Leonardo Mobility Programme (EU Funding)


EFT Systems Ltd are proud to support our young apprentices giving them the best possible apprenticeship to develop their skills both in the UK and abroad!

The second of three groups of apprentices from 17 Electronic Security Systems companies throughout the UK have returned from an EU fully funded work experience programme to Denmark, the first such programme funded through the Leonardo Mobility Programme for Skills for Security.

This has been in collaboration with the Danish Institute of Fire and Security Technology, Bravida, the leading systems installation company in Scandinavia, and the Leonardo da Vinci National Agency.

The 14 day programme in Copenhagen, Denmark gave participants the opportunity to experience operational practices overseas and participate in activities to enhance and develop their skills in the installation of security systems. They stayed in Danhostel Amager youth hostel with their accompanying adult Alan Boardman from Preston College, and worked alongside Bravida’s engineers in the Copenhagen area.

James Raynor - EFT - Group 2 Apprentice: “I feel it was an opportunity to see how the industry I work in differs in another country. I have been able to take away ideas from the experience and may be able to put some into practice in the coming months. From this I hope to become an even more competent engineer in the future and feel that I have met some friends whom I expect to keep in touch with.”
