We recognise the people we employ remain our greatest asset and this encourages us to offer opportunities for our staff to learn and develop new skills.

Gowrie Care is an approved centre with the Scottish Qualifications Authority and we pay for staff to undertake training including SVQ 2, 3 and 4. As well as the core training we offer project and service user specific training.
Internal progression and promotion is encouraged and there are opportunities to progress within the organisation.
