Health & Social Care

The Business Development Unit offers a range of training solutions for individuals working within the Care Sector. This is an area of activity for which Borders College has developed an excellent reputation for consistent quality, knowledge and expertise.

The expectations of people in care and their families are ever increasing and organisations and companies who provide services for people requiring care must be equipped to meet these demands. It is therefore essential that staff have the appropriate skills required for working with vulnerable people and more importantly that they are able to put these into practice in their care work.Group of people

Training is critical to the development of all care staff and will contribute substantially to the credentials of any organisation and help them meet criteria set out in the National Care Standards and Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) Codes of Practice. 

The Business Development Unit offers a range of training and development options, which are delivered in a flexible, customer-orientated manner within their own workplace.

These qualifications can be gained during the course of normal day-to-day work activity and can be undertaken by people of all ages and at any stage in their career to promote excellence in staff skills and performance.
