The Sector Skills Council for the places where we live and work
Asset Skills works with the main cleaning trade bodies on raising the profile of the cleaning workforce and in getting the importance of good quality training recognised.
Cleaners form an essential workforce, without which we would live in vermin-infested streets in disease-ridden communities.
There is a wide range of rewarding jobs in cleaning, with career progression paths. It can also be a flexible job with great opportunities for someone with an entrepreneurial flair.
The apprenticeship training covers basic cleaning skills as well as specialist modules in infection control, crime scene clean-ups, disaster recovery, correct use of machinery and working at heights.
