To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what assessment her Department has made of the role of the Fire Service College in (a) providing essential and unique training services to the UK fire and rescue services and (b) assisting the new professional standards body in building a framework of standards for the service.

The Government does not assess the College’s role in the provision of its services.

It is the responsibility for individual fire and rescue services to decide where training is procured and assure themselves of the quality of that training.

The sector based project team led by the National Fire Chiefs Council are currently undertaking work to explore options for a new professional standards body, and they will engage with the Fire Service College as a valued stakeholder during this process.
