The team at Havencourt Care Home in Stonehaven came together to celebrate multiple colleague achievements at the home.
Chris Rose and Jamie Nicoll completed their SVQ Level 2, Lavinia Rose completed her SVQ Level 3. Vicky Costello and Iwona Lutchman have completed their Senior Nurse Care Assistant Programme.
SVQs are based on national standards which are drawn up by people from industry, commerce and education. They are badges or benchmarks of competence, so they work as a guarantee that someone who holds an SVQ can do the job the qualification covers.
Senior Nursing Care Assistants take on a higher level of responsibility and provide special resident experiences every day. The role can, and has, inspired many to explore further development pathways into Nursing or Home Management.
Rhona McGregor, Home Manager, said: “I’m very proud of the team here. They’ve worked really hard and thoroughly deserve this recognition. The skills they’ve learnt will further enhance the care they give to the residents here at Havencourt, which from what I can see is an added bonus, as the team here are already doing a fantastic job.”
