UK cleaning sector trade association the Building Futures Group (BFG) has announced investment in industry-led training and development opportunities. The organisation is also planning a nationwide campaign to help raise the profile of the wide-ranging careers available in the cleaning industry.
The training arm of the BFG, Asset Skills Training, will be developing National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) in cleaning, giving support to companies wishing to provide apprenticeships. It will also be calling industry leaders together for an SME summit, where they can shape the work of the BFG in the sector.
