Posted on 26 May 2010 |

AF International, the specialists in PC, workstation, office equipment and multimedia cleaning products has joined forces to create a unique partnership with The Skills People at Lewisham College and The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) a professional and educational body.

The BICSc was founded in 1961 and is the largest independent body for the cleaning industry. Their mission is to raise the status and standards of the cleaning industry, through education. They have developed a range of bespoke courses aimed at hospitality and cleaning operatives, and once trained attendees achieve a nationally recognised BICSc qualification.

Mark Cook, Executive Director of Business Development for The Skills People said: "We are recognised as one of the most employer-responsive training providers in the country, and we’re also one of the few who have achieved the new Training Quality Standard. The Skills People are one of the leading work-based training centres in London and the South East, and as part of the BICSc qualifications we have been asked to expand the course to personal computer cleaning.”

Neil Brooks, Training Assessor for The Skills People said: "AF was kind enough to meet and discuss our requirements and took great interest in the program we are offering to businesses and individuals. I knew the AF brand of product from a previous working role, and hoped they could help with providing product and educational material to aid the Personal Computer Cleaning course. They have provided exactly what we need, we are very grateful".

AF International have been providing the IT, office and stationery markets with specialist ICT cleaning products for over 40 years, with manufacturing and research and development sites in the UK and China.

"AF International sees this as a great honour and opportunity to provide professional people with the products they require within their working practice. We have always advocated specialist cleaning products for delicate office equipment, and this gives us a fantastic platform to showcase our products." Jennifer Torrance, UK Key Account Manager.
