Training

All support staff receive a wide variety of training to assist them in fulfilling their role. This includes training in the following areas:

  • First Aid
  • Epilepsy
  • Moving and Handling
  • Food Hygiene and Infection Control
  • Positive Behaviour
  • Health & Safety
  • Medication Handling and Administration
  • Adult Support & Protection

The vast majority of our support staff have an SVQ qualification (or equivalent) in Health & Social Care. Those staff members who do not will be supported to gain this qualification through our partnership with West Lothian College.
