Apprenticeship and traineeship learning resources

Sourcing the best resources for your learners can be frustrating, which is why we have developed a range of materials specifically matched to the apprenticeships and traineeships we offer.

Our Apprenti-kits and Trainee-kits are innovative learner resources, designed to guide apprentices and trainees right through the entirety of their programme, from day one to graduation.

traineeship learning resourcesApprenti-kits cover the mandatory units of knowledge-based apprenticeship qualifications, and include everything that learners need such as textbooks, workbooks and guidance from subject matter experts. Available in nearly 20 subject areas, apprenti-kits are also available as e-kits, using Adobe editable software so that learners can complete them electronically.

Our Trainee-kits are designed to support the government’s new traineeship programme, which are aimed at unemployed young people aged 16 to 24. They are part of the wider apprenticeship family, and designed to give learners the work experience, skills and knowledge that employers need them to have in order to start contributing to their business.

trainee-kitEach Trainee-kit contains a welcome booklet, explaining how traineeships and their component parts work, a work preparation section outlining the work preparation qualifications available, a section allowing learners to reflect on their work experience, plus a textbook for the academic aspect of traineeships and workbooks containing questions and activities mapped to learning outcomes that can be used as evidence of learning. And just like our Apprenti-kits, they come in an e-kit format so they can be completed electronically.

PRESS RELEASE: New learning materials for updated security qualifications

A new range of learning resources has been launched by Highfield.co.uk to help educators and learners with recently updated security qualifications.

The new qualifications were launched after a review into learning in the sector in 2014 by the Security Industry Authority (SIA) which affected licence-linked security units, and resulted in qualifications containing these being withdrawn and replaced with immediate effect on 1 January 2015.

The materials – which have been written by security experts Andy Walker and Gordon Tyerman (CCTV only) – support the updated Level 2 qualifications launched on 1 January 2015 by awarding organisations, including Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance (HABC), currently the largest provider of SIA licence-linked qualifications.

They include:

Working as a Door Supervisor Coursebook
Working as a Door Supervisor Presentation
Working as a Security Officer Coursebook
Working as a Security Officer Presentation
Working as a CCTV Operator Coursebook
Working as a CCTV Operator Presentation

Chris Sprenger, Highfield.co.uk Managing Director, said, ‘The new security qualifications have been updated to create a completely new suite of qualifications that meet the needs of learners and employers, and better reflect the requirements of those organisations operating in the sector.

The materials we have created are an absolutely vital resource in helping learners, educators and training providers move across to the new Level 2 security qualifications whilst ensuring they have all the necessary information and knowledge required for success.

In Andy Walker and Gordon Tyerman we have two of the most respected and authoritative experts in the field, and who have been able to explain concisely and coherently the changes and the wider content of the Level 2 qualifications’.

Each book comes in a 100-page plus, A4, firmback and gloss-finish format with full colour illustrations and photos. The presentations, which are available as a PC CD-ROM and can be viewed using Microsoft PowerPoint, complement the books and are ideal for group learning.

Prices start at £9.95 for each of the books and £175 for each of the presentations (exclusive of VAT and postage and packing) with discounts available for multiple orders.
