programme into facilities management (FM) services.
Facilities managers have extensive responsibilities for providing,
maintaining and developing a myriad of services, and Regent Samsic
recognised that its managers and team leaders would benefit from the
opportunity to develop their own skills and knowledge within the FM
The company's aims were also to give its staff an opportunity to
study for recognised qualifications within the industry and develop
skills for their own and the company's benefit.
After four open days and induction process, held at the company's
headquarters in Coventry, over 40 members of the Regent cleaning and
security management teams are attending Level 2 and 3 advanced
apprenticeship schemes in FM run by South Thames College.
Subjects covered by senior management training to Level 3
qualification include customer services, risk assessment,
operational performance, recruitment, leadership, and health and
Contract Managers and Team leaders working to attaining Level 2
qualification in facilities services are covering a wider range of
operational skills including team work and resources.
"We see many advantages in adopting these schemes," says Bozena
Wojciechowska, HR Director/Quality & Environmental Manager at Regent
"All participants will be able to develop their own teams to compete
in the marketplace while management and team leaders share common
skills sets and knowledge to deliver to our customer base."
"These courses will help improve Regent staff performance and
professionalism and demonstrate to clients and its teams that staff
operate to quality standards", says South Thames College Manager,
