See us at the Emergency Services Show 2021

Along with our sister organisation, Skills for Justice, the SFJ Awards team will be exhibiting, and speaking at, the Emergency Services Show 2021. The first face-to-face event our team will be attending since November 2019, and an opportunity to meet and greet key stakeholders from across the Emergency Services, including Policing, Fire and Rescue, Ambulance and First Response employees.

Team members, including Franco Mattiello and Chelsea Littleton-Harper will be on-hand to support attendees interested in hearing more about opportunities to deliver regulated qualifications, deliver professional development with custom certification for learners, and support employers with their apprenticeship programmes and End-Point Assessment strategies.

Joining up with our colleagues from Skills for Justice, will mean employers can also find out more about the Skills for Justice Membership, which provides additional workforce development support, free networking opportunities with organisations such as the Ministry of Justice and the National Crime Agency, plus a range of extra benefits from the Sector Skills Council for Justice.

We’re delighted to also be supporting the Emergency Services Show, by delivering two speaking sessions for attendees, with special guests from across the justice and emergency services sector.
