Malcolm Thomas, Operations Director says “We are proud and delighted to have been recognised in this way. Winning this prestigious award is a testament to the hard work and commitment that staff across the College put into developing and delivering courses for our international customers as well as our UK customers, this is also reflected in the great customer feedback that we receive.”
The International Business Development and Delivery team develop relationships with a global audience with a particular focus on the Middle East and Europe. We currently offer specialist training at all levels to these organisations. While the team can deliver this training anywhere in the world, many overseas learners choose to come to Moreton-in-Marsh for the experience of living and learning abroad, to immerse themselves in a different culture which broadens and enhances their learning opportunity, as well as for the unique facilities offered by the specialist incident ground. In addition, 2016 saw the Fire Service College become the first European body to attain accreditation to award NFPA standards through the awarding body, Pro Board. An essential part of this work is to create a mutually beneficial relationship designed to build safer sustainable communities through the delivery of high impact training with the associated international qualifications.
