Across the public sector, collaborative working is becoming highly regarded to help services and funds go further, the Fire and Rescue services (FRS’) can demonstrate many examples of this. One such example being training, with the FRS training managers from across Wales coming together on a regular basis to set and implement policy.

A review of the firefighter apprenticeship framework was due in 2017, and it was proposed to help standardise training across the country and deliver on the Welsh Government’s agenda for employing apprentices to support the Well-being of Future Generations Act 2015. Each of the three FRS’ had been running full-time apprenticeship programmes for some time, albeit in different ways. They set up an All Wales Apprenticeship Working Group to consider the challenges, and invited experts from Skills for Justice to work with them on the revision of the firefighter apprenticeship framework.
