Walking With The Wounded are working in partnership with BAFSA, and will be running a pilot programme which will be aimed at Ex Service personnel from the North of England who are looking for a career as a fire sprinkler installer. All candidates will need to be able to work and train at our membership companies in the North West (Manchester and surrounding area.
The programme will enable semi and non-skilled Ex-Servicemen and women to train initially as sprinkler installers and once qualified you will see an uplift to trade rates of pay on qualification and the opportunity to earn generous productivity bonuses.
This offer is free training with a living wage and a career with BAFSA member companies to become part of dedicated, hardworking, trade-qualified workforce in the years ahead.
Trainees will earn c. £17000 pa during their training and once qualified, IQ Level 2 Certificate in Fire Sprinkler Installation (QCF), they will earn considerably more.
The programme will be delivered by the Manchester College (TMC) and BAFSA supported by Walking with the wounded and RFEA.
Each individual will be employed directly by the employer on completion of the CSCS and Health and Safety qualifications. This training will take place and be delivered by TMC initially over a 2 to 3 week period. Once in employment individuals will be required to attend TMC one day a week on day release. The remaining four days will be spent within the workplace working alongside employees.
The programme will be for the duration of 12 months and on completion employment will be continued by each candidate that has undertaken the course. (Obviously this is subject to good behaviour etc.)
Employers will be engaged by BAFSA, WWTW and TMC collectively prior to any individual being placed with them.
