The National Carer Organisation (NCO) are a not for profit who represent carers and the social care sector in the UK.


The overarching objective was to improve the quality of carer training. Funded by the Scottish Government, we were asked to put together a series of training courses with the aim of increasing the capability and confidence of voluntary sector trainers who are responsible for training carers to better equip them for the role.


We designed and delivered a series of four-day, ‘Train the Trainer’ programmes. We also put in place a continuous learning framework with pre and post-evaluation to maximise the value of the programme and ensure the learnings were implemented.

Feedback from participants was extremely positive. They praised the course content, and the delivery was described as “The perfect balance of leadership, support and prompting”.

NCO were suitably impressed by the results as to commission a second phase in 2015, rolling the programme out to cities across Scotland.
