A new Apprenticeship Standard for the role of Community Safety Advisor has now been approved by the Institute for Apprenticeships and is ready for delivery.
A Community Safety Advisor supports people in remaining safe and reducing them from risks of harm – such as fire, falls, crime or due to the circumstances in which the individual is living. They would be part of a multi-agency team working in partnership with a wide range of organisations that provide support to the community.
Community Safety Advisors work in a wide range of different environments such as: homes, education centres, public buildings and at events. Potential organisations they could work for may include the emergency services, NHS and/or local authorities.
Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue as the lead organisation, along with a number of other Fire & Rescue Services and community safety agencies across England, have worked together to develop this apprenticeship standard over the last 18 months.
A funding level of £3,500 per advisor apprentice has been agreed.
