 Regent Security

Regent Security commended by Ofsted

Regent Security has been highly commended in a report for Birmingham Metropolitan College by Ofsted, the official body tasked with inspecting and regulating the care of children, young people, and the education and skills for learners of all ages.

"Ofsted have given us top marks for security in their report and we are naturally delighted with the news," says Regent joint managing director Jonathan King.

The report highlights in particular exemplary safeguarding arrangements with security staff providing exceptionally well-controlled access to college sites and a very good balance between security and sensitivity.

Matthew Boulton College

Managers are reported as giving a very high priority to implementation of comprehensive policies and procedures with security staff managing access to all main campuses extremely effectively with learners thereby feeling very safe within colleges such as Matthew Boulton in the city centre (pictured).

Managers also work extremely effectively with external partners within a well-considered strategic plan to ensure that the college meets the needs of learners, employers and communities.

"This is a first rate outcome for Regent," comments Birmingham Metropolitan College assistant facilities manager John Latham.

"This company continues to demonstrate best practice in both cleaning and security provision for our sites and it’s a pleasure to have their teams in our community."

John Latham sees the successful partnership between contractor and college hinging on effective grass roots management and clear lines of communication between the two parties.

"We all function as a single team," he says. "I know that when I ask for something to be done, it will be done."
