What is Facilities Management?
Facilities Management impacts on the vast majority of individuals and organisations across the UK and adds value through a highly skilled workforce creating efficiencies in service delivery and implementation.
It encompasses multi-disciplinary activities within the built environment and the management of their impact upon people and the workplace. Effective Facilities Management, combining resources and activities, is vital to the success of any organisation. At a corporate level, it contributes to the delivery of strategic and operational objectives. On a day-to-day level, effective Facilities Management provides a safe and efficient working environment, which is essential to the performance of any business – whatever its size and scope. Within this fast growing professional discipline, facilities managers have extensive responsibilities for providing, maintaining and developing myriad services. These range from property strategy, space management and communications infrastructure to building maintenance, administration and contract management.
This apprenticeship prepares an individual for managing a facilities management service, or a group of services, which can be labelled as ‘hard’ (estate/building management) or soft (catering/cleaning/administration/security). All apprentices will be required to supervise others; to understand the contractual requirements and service delivery targets between their employing organisation and the client/customer in order to achieve service targets. The apprentice will have to provide customer service skills and be proactive in finding solutions to problems.
Employers will identify entry requirements through selection. Employers who recruit candidates without a level 2 English and maths must ensure the apprentice achieves this standard prior to completion of the apprenticeship.
Apprentices will receive up to two years studying membership of the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) and on completion of the apprenticeship will meet the qualifying criteria for Associate Membership of the Institute. Further progress can be made post apprenticeship through the professional membership pathway which ultimately leads to recognition as a Certified Facilities Manager by the BIFM.
Completing this apprenticeship programme will enable progression into a wide range of senior roles within the Facilities Management area roles such as a Facilities Manager, Premises Manager, Energy Services Manager or Contract Manager.
