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