What is it like to work for Cunninghame Housing Association

Personal Growth

Their Staff SVQ programme at their Homeless Person's Project, Victoria House is an excellent example of how the Association supports employee development. They have an annual programme in place for staff going through the SVQ Level 3 in Health & Social Care and to date they have over 75% of staff through the programme which is well ahead of the completion target set by the Scottish Social Services Council. To maximise the support for staff going through this training, the Association invested in training two members of staff as SVQ Assessors this has made a tremendous improvement to the training experience for the staff taking part and it has meant that their training is more focused and minimises travel requirements and disruption to work patterns in this shift working environment.

The North Ayrshire Community Health Partnership and Healthy Working Lives Advisers were also in attendance and the stalls were staffed by people with expert knowledge, with the purpose to raise awareness and to provide information, guidance and advice to staff on matters of interest.
