What people say …
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 appreciate all the help I received from ARC, for their patience and guidance to get me through my award. Thank you.
Medication Training - All information was relevant and trainer was great! Very enthusiastic and kept us interested despite the heat. Great Trainer!
Thank you for supporting me in achieving this award.
Thanks for all the support I was given. It gave me more confidence in my own ability.
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.
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.
“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.”
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.
Personal Care Training – Good. Professionally conveyed in a knowledgeable, relaxed manner.
The support from ARC Scotland was very good – thank you.
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 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 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.
Medication Training – Very relaxed but very informative.
Assessor very helpful, patient and professional. Clear explanation of what was required.
I was impressed by the style of training. The lecturer was easy to understand.
I feel more equipped in my role and have a lot more knowledge. My experience was positive and felt ARC were very professional.
Medication Training – I found the training very informative and learned a lot from this. Enjoyed the powerpoint and was very well presented.
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.
“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
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.
Assessor has been excellent and a great support in completing the Award.
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.
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.
