Thank you for supporting me in achieving this award.
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 appreciate all the help I received from ARC, for their patience and guidance to get me through my award. Thank you.
The support from ARC Scotland was very good – thank you.
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.
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.
A very rewarding experience which made me want to learn more. Assessor was excellent, explained everything clearly in easy to understand terms when some questions appeard complicated. Doing my award has made me much more informative to others. I have gained skills, knowledge and awareness of procedures, protocols and practice.
Medication Training - All information was relevant and trainer was great! Very enthusiastic and kept us interested despite the heat. Great Trainer!
Assessor very helpful, patient and professional. Clear explanation of what was required.
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.
I have better understanding of policies and procedures. It was wonderful experience doing SVQ3 and it was great pleasure to work with my assessor. I am very happy with outcome.
I could not have asked for a better tutor. He really made me think about the components of the course and I feel that I have really achieved a very worthwhile qualification thanks to him. It has been a pleasure to work with my tutor.
I feel more equipped in my role and have a lot more knowledge. My experience was positive and felt ARC were very professional.
“Having knowledge of the Legislation and Law, I recognised an adult at risk and contacted Social Work to get a care package in place and telecare improving his life. Because I know what I am talking about now I am not afraid to make things happen for service users.”
My assessor should be given great praise as I was very reluctant to do this award as education was not something I enjoyed. His constant help, skills and obvious talent and love of what he does has earned him my and everyone I spoke to the utmost respect and admiration.
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.
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.
I have worked with Debbie and her team over the past year., their professional yet approachable and flexible manner has made it easy to establish a good working relatinship very quickly. Our SVQ candidates are making good progress and any issues that arise are dealt with efficiently and professionally.Caroline King, Operations Manager, Learning and DevelopmentCarr Gomm
Medication Training – I thoroughly enjoyed this course as Trainer made it FUN!! I would look forward to any training with him in the future. I really learned from this course today, thanks to Trainer.
I was impressed by the style of training. The lecturer was easy to understand.
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.
Assessor has been excellent and a great support in completing the Award.
