SVQ Social Services and Healthcare Level 3

Rowan Learning Centre is a Social Enterprise, so from every SVQ candidate who learns with us we can provide 3 nights housing and support to a vulnerable adult, or 8 months of outreach support through our CARDS service, or a years worth of training for one of our volunteers. 

What does Rowan Alba provide?

Rowan Alba provides a bespoke learning experience for each SVQ candidate. As a smaller centre with all our Assessors experienced in frontline work with  individuals with multiple and complex support needs, we can offer learning support tailored to the specific needs of those in the Third Sector.

Our Record as a Centre

We have been delivering SVQ’s to our own staff since 2009. 100% of candidates who have decided to remain in the care sector have successfully completed their SVQ Level 3 in Social Services and Health Care whilst working with us. This years SQA report highlighted us as having ‘Significant Strengths in all areas’, with no areas for improvement. It made particular mention of our ‘resilient’ work with candidates who have additional support needs.

Remote Learning

Using Microsoft Outlooks Onedrive, candidates and assessors can communicate and piece together the virtual SVQ portfolio in between scheduled meetings. This allows regular feedback on work and centralised access for candidate, assessor and line manager if required. A monthly update on each candidate to the purchaser will also be provided.

Price Structure

Rowan Alba is an SAAS approved Part Time Fee Grant provider and as such, up to £815 of the cost of the award can be claimed by eligible candidates. Further pricing information available on request, for individual and group bookings. Contact Ewan Law on 0131 229 7554 or email for details. Rowan Alba Limited can also offer organisations qualified assessors to work alongside their existing SVQ provider.
