The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) whose headquarters is situated in Northampton, played a starring role in filming for Dragonfly’s Teen Mum Academy for E4.
The series features six ambitious teen mums as they embark on a bid to supercharge their lives, joining a potentially life-changing course run by entrepreneur Jess Lizama, to learn the skills they need to succeed. BICSc were invited to take part in the TV series to assist one teen mum, Millie, with aspirations to join the professional cleaning industry.
Looking to start her own business in cleaning and gain her first ever qualification, the TV programme features Millie, who visited BICSc HQ in Northampton where BICSc Assessor, Kelsey Hargreaves, took her through her Licence to Practice assessment. The qualification is the stepping stone to forging a career in the cleaning industry.
BICSc, who specialise in the training of cleaning operatives, were delighted to help Millie and be featured in the current series of the show, which is available to view via 4 on Demand https://www.channel4.com/programmes/teen-mum-academy/on-demand/71185-004
Neil Spencer-Cook, Chief Operating Officer at BICSc, said: “BICSc were thrilled to appear on E4’s Teen Mum Academy. We are keen to encourage more young people to join the professional cleaning industry and discover there are numerous career pathways to succeeding in the sector.
“Millie was able to undertake her training via our virtual training suite and her assessment was done in person at BICSc. Taking part in the TV series enabled us to shine a spotlight on the industry’s growing requirement for flexible training, which includes online learning options.
“With 80-90 per cent of requests we are receiving being for virtual training it is a trend that is clearly here to stay. Switching to online digital courses is helping to transform the training landscape and the benefits are multiple for candidates, allowing them to learn at their own pace and plan their personalised training sessions around their work and lifestyle.”
