The Great Western Assessment and Training centre was established in 2002 and is dedicated to the Assessment and Training of all staff who wish to work in the early year's childcare sector and youth training.
The centre is an innovative and forward thinking concept, dedicated to providing a holistic approach to both training and assessment in the fields of :-
- Social Services (Children and Young People)
- Play work
Our qualifications, which are work based, are delivered through standards developed by National Training Organisations and are aimed at staff who have either no experience or relatively little experience in childcare or play work.
Jayne Marshall, Quality Assurance Coordinator of our training centre, is dedicated to providing high quality assessment and training for our staff. Our training centre provides high quality SVQ's in Social Services (Children and Young People) and Playwork and on going training courses to ensure our staff are highly trained and continue to develop in their job roles.
GW@EY works in close partnership with our awarding bodies City and Guilds and SQA.
