Our aim is to support organisations and individual practioners to introduce and implement peer support, recovery focused and trauma informed practice in their services. To achieve our aim we offer a range of CPD training opportunities tailored to your organisations needs and budget.
Mind's Well is a SQA approved learning centre which means that the centre systems, policies and quality standards meet SQA rigorous criteria.
The Scottish Qualifications Authority, or SQA, is a public body sponsored by the Scottish Government responsible for the development, accreditation, assessment and certification of qualifications.
The SQA does not receive payment for providing accreditation, Instead organisations must complete a rigorous application process which involves scrutiny of quality assurance, tutorial and marking procedures, and many other aspects before earning the right to be known as an SQA Approved Centre.
This means that when you train with Mind's Well, you can be assured that all aspects of our training delivery meet the high standards required under the SQA.
There are approximately 1,470 centres approved to offer SQA qualifications. These include Schools, Colleges and Minds Well.
