We are a recognised training centre where Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire councils pay for placements for our trainees. Usually care managers decide whether the opportunities we provide are suitable for each person’s needs.
However, a new system – direct payments – means that families and carers, through support with Social Work, can look at direct placements with us. We are happy to show people around our premises and to answer any queries people have.
During the forthcoming financial year (2016/17) one of our key priorities is to develop our Training Village concept further and bring in new training opportunities based on positive outcomes. We shall introduce a certification process where personal achievements are recorded and individual trainees are recognised for their personal accomplishments.
We aim to develop a training village that provides real work place experiences and shall work with others to achieve this.
