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.
