What people say …
Thank you to ARC Scotland for putting me through this award.
The support from ARC Scotland was very good – thank you.
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 – 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.
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 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.
Medication Training – I found the training very informative and learned a lot from this. Enjoyed the powerpoint and was very well presented.
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.
Thanks for all the support I was given. It gave me more confidence in my own ability.
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.

Person Centred Planning – Excellent course and delivery. Trainer is very easy to understand and made the content very enjoyable. Trainer has infectious enthusiasm.
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.
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 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

Assessor very helpful, patient and professional. Clear explanation of what was required.
“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.”
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.
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.
