What people say …
I was supported really well considering the distance that my assessor had to travel to meet up. My assessor explained everything to me in a way I could understand. It has been a while since I did any exam type work and she always made me feel very capable and always had praise for my work. It will help with all aspects of my work and give me more understanding to paper work systems and rules and regulations.
It has given me much more information on how to care for individuals in the correct manner in line with codes of practice promoting their independence and dignity.
“I have managed to encourage and support a service user to go on a bus independently which has totally changed their life for the better. Most rewarding part of my career so far.”
My assessor was very supportive and I strongly appreciate everything she helped me with. I never felt under stress, she made it an enjoyable experience.
Medication Training – This was a most explicit and easy followed course. The delivery was excellent. After being on many courses this has to be most informative but enjoyable time I have spent on a course Trainer was just wonderful – 10/10.
My assessor was incredibly supportive and her enthusiasm and enjoyment of her role made it a throughly enjoyable and educational experience. She is an assett to your organisation.
I enjoyed working with my assessor, I found her approachable and very supportive. She encouraged me through my low points and the times I felt overwhelmed with work, which was often! I liked that she was always positive and pointed out how far I had come and what I’d achieved and this undoubtedly helped me focus and get through.
Doing this award has taught me to think about my work practice and understand the theory behind my job. I enjoyed my time doing my SVQ.

Medication Training – I found the training very informative and learned a lot from this. Enjoyed the powerpoint and was very well presented.
Thanks for all the support I was given. It gave me more confidence in my own ability.
This was the most difficult, intense and exhausting qualification I have ever undertaken. My assessor was brilliant in explaining what was required of me. He reassured me when I was struggling to push on. He got the best out of me. The measure of a good assessor is one who can encourage you to go a little bit further in thought, detail and boost morale. The best there is.
The course ‘Handling Medication in Social Care settings’ was very interesting, beneficial and thorough. It was one of the best courses I have been on.
Assessor very helpful, patient and professional. Clear explanation of what was required.
Medication Training – Very relaxed but very informative.
