SecuriGroup’s commitment to supporting our people in their personal and professional development can be found in the time invested in our training programmes and is underlined by our Investors in People Gold accreditation. Key to this commitment is the recognition that our expertise must be shared with clients, partners and stakeholders.
At SecuriGroup, we work in partnership with the UK's leading Awarding Bodies to combine the classroom delivery of nationally accredited courses, vocational qualifications, toolbox training on-the-job and the latest e-learning technology to develop
our people and share our expertise with clients.
SecuriGroup's Learning Management System (LMS) delivers clear, concise and targeted training to our people. By keeping the content of our Course Catalogue relevant to our operating landscape, and maintaining the knowledge and competency of our people through remote learning, we ensure that our training offering provides the tools to help our people develop and succeed.
SecuriGroup LMS has been singled out during ACS and Investors in People audits as best practice due to its ground-breaking intuitive format and its ability to track the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) of our people and clients via e-learning. Our bespoke e-learning system allows us to design and deliver courses to our exacting requirements.
Upon course completion, learners are awarded a certificate and receive points to increase user engagement. Learners unlock levels and customisable badges, and can work their way up the SecuriGroup LMS Leaderboard.
SecuriGroup LMS can produce tailored dashboards on course uptake and completion in order to demonstrate adherence to scheduled training on site, and each individual learner's
