People make the difference at Parklands. Our staff are at the heart of our success over 20 years.
As staff numbers have expanded, a career structure has been developed to support staff training and development, including a management trainee programme.
Parklands have also developed its own SVQ training centre which delivers SVQ 2, 3 and 4 level training. The industry training standard is SVQ 2; however Parklands is working towards a target of delivering SVQ 3 training as the minimum standard for all care staff.
Parklands was one of the first care home providers in Scotland to gain Investors in People Status, and has won a number of awards for training and development.
Over 20 years, Parklands has developed a dedicated, caring team of professionals. And crucially, around 70% of staff have been with Parklands for more than 10 years.
