This supports colleges like us with innovative new ways to teach and gives students the opportunity to use industry-standard equipment.
The donation of one of SafeGuard’s bullet proof vests can provide hands-on examples of the equipment that military and law enforcement personnel use in their line of work to better illustrate the importance of safety to students. Such donations create invaluable opportunities and enhance the teaching experience. Our tutors will use the vests for role play and technical analysis to improve the quality of our programme and educational practices.
Thomas Bowman, Communications Manager at SafeGuard said: "We have made it a priority to embed an applied industry based model in our manufacturing process; this is partly achieved through continuous and strong collaborations with the Police, MOD, Fire Service and Ambulance services to really enhance the quality of our tactical vests. Now, we have focused on sharing this knowledge with local colleges like Hertford Regional College, so their students can make the best progress in securing employment in those relevant industries. This new collaboration adds another exciting partnership to further enhance our national reach, giving access to a new practical teaching tool reflected in real-life based scenarios to all students across the country".
