Skills for Security

Skills for Security is the Sector Skills Body for the private security industry and is a not-for-profit organisation.

Skills for Security has established communication channels with UK Government ministers, departments and the devolved assemblies as well as with theindustry regulator (SIA) and the various agencies involved in the administrations of qualifications, funding and skills development in order to act as a voice for the sector.

It works closely with the police and intelligence agencies in a number of areas of mutual interest in order to foster greater understanding, trust and co-operation within the extended security and policing family, and to align skills and standards. This relationship has resulted in Skills for Security becoming a key partner in initiatives such as Project Griffin and Argus, and security planning for the 2012 Olympic Games in London and 2014 Commonwealth Games in Scotland.
