What people say …
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.
Thanks for all the support I was given. It gave me more confidence in my own ability.
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.
Thank you to ARC Scotland for putting me through this award.
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.

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.
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 - All information was relevant and trainer was great! Very enthusiastic and kept us interested despite the heat. Great Trainer!
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.
Person Centred Planning – Excellent course and delivery. Trainer is very easy to understand and made the content very enjoyable. Trainer has infectious enthusiasm.
“I have developed from working for the residents to working with the residents through Active Support. The service users I work with are benefitting through active support to learn new independent living skills.”MB, Support Worker, Garvald Glenesk
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.
Assessor very helpful, patient and professional. Clear explanation of what was required.
Personal Care Training – Good. Professionally conveyed in a knowledgeable, relaxed manner.
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.
Thank you for supporting me in achieving this award.
“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.”
Medication Training – I found the training very informative and learned a lot from this. Enjoyed the powerpoint and was very well presented.
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 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.
Medication Training – I have learned a lot today, this has increased my knowledge and given me a better awareness of the accountability that I have in my job. Most enjoyable.
“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.”
Assessor has been excellent and a great support in completing the Award.
Medication Training – Very relaxed but very informative.
