What people say …
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!
Personal Care Training – Excellently delivered training, punctuated with relevant stories that helped me to absorb the content. Trainer made this fun which kept my attention.
I feel more equipped in my role and have a lot more knowledge. My experience was positive and felt ARC were very professional.
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.
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
Person Centred Planning – Excellent course and delivery. Trainer is very easy to understand and made the content very enjoyable. Trainer has infectious enthusiasm.
Thanks for all the support I was given. It gave me more confidence in my own ability.
Assessor very helpful, patient and professional. Clear explanation of what was required.
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.
Personal Care Training – Good. Professionally conveyed in a knowledgeable, relaxed manner.
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.
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.
We have worked very successfully in partnership with ARC for a number of years in both delivery and training and SVQ level 4 awards. This has been a positive experience and has been of great help in the development and competence of our staff.Hamish Robertson, Training ManagerCapability Scotland
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.
“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.”
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.
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.
Thank you to ARC Scotland for putting me through this award.
Thank you for supporting me in achieving this award.
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 appreciate all the help I received from ARC, for their patience and guidance to get me through my award. Thank you.
“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
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.
