Budding locksmiths benefit from apprenticeship scheme open day

  • 23 Nov 2015

As part of its commitment to the Master Locksmiths Association (MLA) apprenticeship scheme, ASSA ABLOY has hosted an open day at its Portobello site.

The apprenticeship scheme was launched by ASSA ABLOY’s partners, the MLA and Skills for Security, last year.

Developed to professionalise the locksmithing sector, the scheme aims to equip the next generation of locksmiths with the practical skills and knowledge essential to expanding the industry.

The event covered practical skills, as well as offering an understanding of the marketplace and product development. Sessions included factory tours, market evaluation and practical lock assembly.

Each attendee received personalised mementos from the day, including an engraved lock case, glass placard and the lock case which they assembled.

With the locksmithing industry about to enter a period of growth and transition, a career in the sector can offer a wealth of opportunities. Skills and Security can provide information about taking on an apprenticeship or staff training within the sector.
