Planning is definitely an art as much of a science.
Having time to reflect through all this has been a great reminder of how important planning (which we often take for granted or see as a chore) really is.
I continue to work on medium and long term plans for the company and the candidates we support because I believe it is extremely important to sow the seeds for the future.
In many ways we were very lucky in that we were the only training provider of our kind in Scotland that was fully online before all this began. This has helped tremendously when our candidates suddenly found themselves in a position where they had more time in their hands and were able to remotely complete work even from home.
As we move forward we will continue to support local business and local people with training requirements and vocational qualifications.

Managing risk is all about
- identifying threat
- reviewing resources
- defining your response
We're positively working through this crisis by helping candidates and our people as well as our clients make the most of this new status quo.
If you are a candidate currently working towards a qualification with us, please get in touch with your assessor as they can put work online for you to complete and help you keep progressing
I'm positive by nature.
Yes, things are not optimal at the moment especially for training firms.
But. We are getting through this an we will get through this.
This week I've been working on how to stay productive at home, since staying at home is the most important thing we are all faced with right now.
So my top tips are
1) get some overdue affairs in order. Since you've got the time use it to your advantage
2) reach out to your business associates and customers. Now more than ever when the "cabin fever" is setting in they will appreciate it.
3) finally make sure you're "geared" for work. This is a state of mind thing but remember our homes are the spaces we relax in so make sure you adapt whatever corner you're using and segregate it from the rest of your living space.
and if you want more ideas or a chat about training your people when all this turns around reach out to me at ssvq.co.uk
This week I'm focusing on from to we at SSVQ are involved with candidates across all areas of this sector.
We have in the past also supported supervision and leadership roles as well as new starters and will continue to invest in this area once things have settled down for all of us.
If you're running a small hotel or B&B or even a larger chain or organisation within the hospitality sector you have probably been affected pretty hard by the lockdown, however you should still be looking ahead and we can help with innovative ways to keep staff upskilled and even help with training and cpd once restrictions have been lifted.
Get in touch with us at SSVQ.co.uk
We're all worried but that doesn't mean we should give up. As we adjust to the new reality we are facing I just wanted to let all our customers & candidates know that although we are all working from home we will continue to deliver the high level of support and qualifications that we always have.
We are the only Scottish training provider who is proud to be 100% paperless and this technology can enable us to continue with a continuous service for as long as possible.
Candidates should use this time to take advantage of the resources online and to make regular telephone contact with their assessor to ensure continuous progression. We are all here to support each other and above all our customers and candidates. Anyone with any concerns should contact [email protected]
In the coming days and weeks I will be posting more about online learning and resources you can utilise whilst at home so stay tuned and share with others who may find this of use.
A lot of you will have seen my recent ad for a retail sector assessor. We have been supporting businesses in this area for a number of years and continue to do so successfully because our people really do know what it's like to work on a shop floor!
A retail modern apprenticeship is undoubtedly one of the toughest in-work qualifications we are involved with. The skills set at SCQF Level 5 and 6 is more than attainable for candidates, the challenge though comes from the fact that the sector is so competitive.
We support candidates in Management roles within the sector also and have a been doing so with multiple businesses in Scotland. If your business is thinking about a modern apprenticeship and you want to find out more about these qualifications visit

The life of a is all about meeting challenges in the workplace and that takes courage and dedication.
We have been involved with supporting modern apprentices in various industries for years. As assessors our jobs are about understanding and recording evidence on how a candidate continues to grow and learn while doing their day to day work.

It's all about individuals and employers involved in events and activities up and down the country and this years theme is
We would love for you to showcase your apprentices, by giving them a wee shout out on your social media using the above hashtag.

When it comes to career goals, there are two sides to every single one of us,
the one that says
"I want this" and the one that says
"you'll never achieve it in a million years"
But as we say to every single one of our , no matter what, never give up on your .
Consistency is the key to achieving whatever your personal or career goal.
So next time that little voice attempts to fill you with negativity stop! Take a step back and ask yourself "why not?". Take five minutes to consider what you need to make it happen. Consider the obstacles but also where you can draw from for help and inspiration. Plan what you are likely to do if things go bad but also if things look like they're going to plan. Whatever you do, don't give up on it! There is nothing more frustrating than looking back and thinking "what if"...
For those of you that might need a bit more help with how you can achieve a work based formal qualification and "silencing" that little voice filling you with doubt get in touch with us at
for more information on how to start a programme and how it's likely to help you move along the career ladder
What do your career goals say about you?
All of us dream of a better future but I bet that most of us at some point felt we knew where we wanted to end up but not necessarily how to get there.
At SSVQ we have been helping candidates in different industries achieve Modern Apprenticeships as well as other formal in-work qualifications across Scotland.
Although there is nothing wrong with dreaming big, we have always maintained that reaching one's career goals should be a a series of small wins rather than an all out race to the top.
Think about it.
Whether you are trying to achieve that dream promotion, or the long lost resolution you've been putting off for years there are two things that remain absolutely constant
1) you can achieve what you set your mind to providing you commit to it, and
2) much like a workplace qualification, you're more likely to achieve what you're after (and not be overwhelmed by your plans) if you break down complex ideas into small achievable steps

Like it or loathe it Valentine's Day is one of the biggest occasions on the retail calendar and we should know! We have been supporting candidates achieving work place qualifications for a years across Scotland.

How's your new year's resolutions going?
Most of us understand from experience that the average new year's resolution doesn't always last past a certain point. And if yours are already a distant memory, don't worry, you're not alone.
According to research, resolutions usually last about two months or so. But the fun thing is they can, and should, be a great motivator to change parts of your future that you feel need re-shaping.
At SSVQ we help learners achieve in many different ways and the strategies our assessors employ can be just as easily used to help you achieve that resolution for 2020.
So here goes, a little list of things you can do to stay on course with your goals
1. write it down
2. stay positive
3. do little and often
4. tell your friends
5. change small things first
6. plan for set backs
7. also plan for success
8. assess what works and what doesn't
and remember whatever you're trying to achieve is really a goal that you can achieve as long as you stay focused and true to yourself!

As the new decade is about to begin I'm reflecting on the hard work we put in this past year. Tonight isn't just about what we achieved it's about realising that the new year brings opportunities and new beginnings.
We are all guilty of letting "other priorities" take over some times and forgetting to focus on what we can achieve personally, be it a professional goal or something that simply brings us joy. We sometimes forget that being happy and settled makes you stronger, more agile and ultimately more ready to take on whatever life (or work) might throw at you.
Realising that none of us can ever be more than the sum of our parts, I'm resolving this year to focus more on quality moments with the people I love being around, doing the things that really matter and I hope you will too.
Happy Hogmanay everyone and wishing you all the very best for the year ahead.
Wishing you all a peaceful Christmas and hope you will spend tomorrow with those that bring meaning to your life.
Delighted to announce that we have new members joining us at SSVQ.
