All HTS support workers are qualified to at least SCQF Level 9. We have implemented this recruitment quality criteria as our extensive experience shows that 3rd level students thrive with support from fully qualified support workers who have studied to at least University Bachelor’s degree level themselves.
In addition, our workers offer a minimum of 2 years’ relevant work experience for each role. As a registered practitioner with the UK Department for Education you can be assured we meet the relevant mandatory requirements for each funding body, such as individual clients, SAAS, SFE, SFW, or SFNI.
HTS is also a Registered Body with Disclosure Scotland. This means we receive ‘live’ organisational updates about support worker records. We prioritised achieving Disclosure Scotland accreditation as the additional duties and responsibilities mean our stakeholders – students, their families, and our college and university partners – can all be confident of our robust student safeguarding measures.
