Telford College will accredit safety stewards for Ashes Test Matches in 2013 and 2015 having received a commitment to continue as a training provider for Trent Bridge.
The home of Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club, Trent Bridge has secured a prestigious package of international matches which extends to 2016 having been commended for high-quality stewarding in an assessment by the ECB.
“More than 150 stewards received NVQ Level 2 and 3 qualifications from Telford College in 2010 and we expect to train 100 more in 2012,” said Telford College trainer Ian Wright.
“Trent Bridge has an excellent reputation for the friendliness of its stewards and we’re pleased to play our part in that.”
Two members of the Club’s Safety Management Team successfully gained NVQ Level 4 qualifications in 2011 and will now deputise for Venue Safety Officer Malcolm Whitt.
“Telford College have qualified 220 stewards in the time we have worked with them and have quickly become valued partners in the recruitment and training process that is so important to our reputation,” said Malcolm.
“We are very proud of the standards that we achieve at Trent Bridge and the eyes of the world will be on us during the matches that we have secured.”
