ARC Training Services (ATS) is one of the largest assessment centres for the Care Sector in the U.K.
We specialise in supporting providers of Learning Disability Services. We offer Training Services, throughout England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, tailored to their cultural and legislative needs.
A highly respected accredited centre for a range of Qualifications.
Our emphasis has always been on helping to produce work-based assessors as our members believe that this represents best practice by ensuring confidentiality and privacy for Service Users. However, times change, and as more people are being supported to take control of their own budgets and live more independently, a flexible approach to assessment is required.
Our Development Officers offer a professional competent approach and they are highly qualified and experienced in the Learning Disability Sector and support Organisations in identifying workforce development needs and offer flexible planning to ensure the right staff are achieving the right Qualifications at the right level to deliver the best quality of support to their Service Users.
Since relocating to Chesterfield ARC Training Services Qualification Centre now consistently receives positive feedback from Awarding Organisations. The way that candidates, assessors, internal quality assurers (formerly internal verifiers) and Training Managers within our Organisation have embraced the changes is evidenced in the high quality of portfolios now coming through.
Thousands of staff have achieved Qualifications with ARC including Qualifications in Health & Social Care (all levels). Now we are offering an even bigger range of qualifications from the new QCF.
Organisations not wanting to become a centre can use ARC Training Services to provide the administration, quality assurance and support necessary to enable their own Assessors and IQA’s (Internal Verifiers) to operate wherever services are being delivered, including in to people’s homes.
Our flexible approach allows us to provide Qualifications in a way, which meets the needs of Organisations, and are relevant to individual roles and requirements. Access our Services information to help you establish your workforce development needs and training or Qualification requirements
