Buchanan Orthotics, a leading provider of Orthotic and Prosthetic services in Scotland, is working towards becoming a fully accredited SQA centre. This means that at the end of the trainee technician apprenticeship, apprentices will be awarded an official SQA qualification certificate.
The SQA is the Scottish Qualifications Authority and the national body for education and training in Scotland. SQA accreditation is a rigorous process that ensures that the training and assessment provided by Buchanan Orthotics meets the highest standards.
To become an accredited SQA centre, Buchanan Orthotics has established a team of two official in-house assessors and an internal verifier. These assessors are products of Buchanans' training academy, and they have extensive experience in the orthotics and prosthetics industry.
The accreditation process is expected to be completed in the next few months, and Buchanan Orthotics is excited to offer its apprentices the opportunity to earn an official SQA qualification. This will give them the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their careers.
"We are committed to providing our apprentices with the best possible training," said Diana Currie, Managing Director of Buchanan Orthotics. "Our pending SQA accreditation is a testament to our commitment to excellence, and we are confident that our apprentices will benefit from this rigorous training."
The accreditation of Buchanan Orthotics as an SQA centre is a major milestone for the company. It is a recognition of the high standards of training and assessment that Buchanan Orthotics provides, and it will give its apprentices the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their careers.
