" Very high impact. At first I struggled to see the relevance but as the course
progressed it was really worthwhile. I learned new skills and believe that I have
emerged as a more capable effective worker.Well delivered course. I learned a great
deal about myself and how I work with young people. "

Staff have found the range of courses provided by Rowan useful and the
COSCA modules very useful in boosting worker confidence to handle sensitive issues
in the care settings they work in. I am delighted that the certificate is now
credit rated within the SCQF, which gives us, as employers, a level for the purpose
of gauging staff competencies.
