08 August 2019
The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) is playing a leading role in addressing the cleaning industry’s skills shortage with the opening of their brand-new 'BBS Training Suite’ in Northampton.
The opening ceremony took place on Friday 5 July at Moulton Park in Northampton, and was officially opened by BBS Managing Director, Mike Fletcher FBICSc, while National Chairman, Sue Robinson FBICSc cut the ribbon on the new BICSc headquarters.
The suite offers training in enhanced cleaning skills including the Institute's most popular qualification the 'Licence to Practice' which, upon completion gives cleaning professionals a three-year licence signifying their understanding of professional standards in cleaning.
Stan Atkins, chief executive officer at BICSc said: “Our practical, hands-on training courses enhance the learning experience by bringing together like-minded professionals and equipping cleaning operatives in all types of work to clean, safely and effectively while gaining recognition for the level of skill involved in professional cleaning.”
The new BBS Training Suite consists of six dedicated training areas, including three cleaning labs and a floor lab where candidates can complete practical skills training. There are also two classroom areas reserved for Cleanlogic™ Courses and Workshops - enhanced qualifications for current or aspiring cleaning managers and supervisors.
