The health and social care training specialists

ARC Scotland Training works with practitioners at all levels to improve knowledge, motivation and practice. We specialise in supporting providers of services to people with disabilities, however most of our training is appropriate for other social care settings, such as care for older people, mental health and children’s services.

We pride ourselves in our personal relationship with customers and our understanding of their needs. Candidate evaluations consistently show we help to improve knowledge, motivation and practice. This is why so many organisations in the voluntary, independent and statutory sectors return to us time and time again.
