Welcome to the Macmillan Centre for Learning, based in Aberdeenshire in the North East of Scotland.

The Centre was borne out of a desire to meet the needs of the social care sector, identifying continuing professional development and offering diversity in the meeting of statutory training requirements. The Centre offers the opportunity to participate in a mode of learning that motivates the learner to reach their potential and develop their skill and for the benefit of the service and service user.  Through the use of traditional methods of training and the integration of technology we offer the support and encouragement any learner needs as they embark upon a new journey of discovery.

The Centre also uses the open source Moodle facility to provide resources within a Virtual Learning Environment that will be accessed by Students only.  This facility offers Students access to video and audio teaching to support any direct teaching that has been set in place for them.  A range of subjects have been identified by SQA as the key components of Social Care, therefore, workbooks have been made accessible for Students to enable a depth of understanding of key concepts and theories to underpin the experience and practice the Students bring.




Macmillan Centre for Learning has approval to deliver the SQA qualification Social Services (Children and Young People) Level 3 and SVQ 3 Health and Social Care.
