Name: Jason Baxter
Age: 21
Home: West Drayton
Previous jobs: Bricklayer, car spraying
Previous education and training: Secondary education, Apprenticeship.

Jason said: "We've learned a lot - customer service, conflict management, procedures on how to search people, first aid, fire safety, legal considerations and more. The security industry is a well-paid area to work in so this training is well worth doing. It's quite fun doing the course. You get treated like an adult and learn in a relaxed environment. The instructors have got their own experience - our tutor is a door supervisor himself - so you know you're being taught by people who know what they're talking about. I would definitely recommend the course."

Name: Lahiru Sbadone
Age: 34
Home: Harlesden
Previous jobs: Hotel receptionist, GP's receptionist, supermarket assistant
Previous education and training: Studied O levels and A levels abroad, completed part-time computer course at college.

Lahiru said: "Now I am qualified as a Door Supervisor I am looking for a job as a security receptionist - it isn't just for jobs working on the door. I found out about this training through Harlesden Jobcentre and signed up. Uxbridge College is a good place to come to do this kind of course, with good teaching and facilities. The staff are very helpful - the College has helped me a lot. The skills we have now also help in day-to-day life, such as first aid and dealing with conflict."
