We are doing a research on the UK Training & Online Recruitment for Private Security and Retail sectors (Bar Tenders / Alcohol Servers / Waiters)
In the UK it is an illegal activity to supply unlicensed staff for security and to obtain a licence training is required, the same way if anyone is working in a retail store or restaurant supplying alcahol they need a personal licence which requires training. Offices/Schools and busiensses need trained first aiders to comply with the health and safety act 1964.
Under the Health and Safety Act 1964, (Duty of Care) every employer must make sure to train their employee, hence regular training is a requirement for the employer.
You are required to research all of the above, market size etc and provide data to back the fact the training for the security and retail sectors is a mandatory requirement due to the above legislations and that additional training is required under health and safety act (duty of care).
These trainings are delivered by training providers who get approval Awarding Organisations who are approved by government body Ofqual. To get data on how many people have been trained for security and retail you can refer to Ofquals website and for employment data refer to http://www.statistics.gov.uk/hub/labour-market
You will carry out a detailed research and provide a report backing all data and sources.
