    Mentor Training Centre

    Mentor Training Centre has been a successful Training Provider since 1988, specialising in training for Dental Nurses with currently around 230 candidates throughout Scotland. As an “Approved Training Organisation” we are continually assessed by Skills Development Scotland (SDS) and Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA).

    The qualification we offer is the PDA / SVQ (SCQF Level 7). The majority of the delivery of our dental nurse programme is on a one to one basis in the candidate’s workplace where they will gain the practical knowledge, experience and personal skills required to be competent in their job role. Formal off the job training is carried out in our large premises in Bath Street to prepare the trainee for their final exam.

    Our Dental Nurse Assessors are all occupationally competent; GDC registered, committed to their postion and hold both Assessment and Verification qualifications. Our highly motivated team work closely with employers, developing strong relationships, ensuring the training we provide meets their needs whilst offering the trainee a high quality learning experience. Regular contact between the assessors and employers allows suitable scheduling of assessment, provision of feedback and reflection on progress.

    We provide questionnaires and feedback surveys on a regular basis to both trainees and employers, results and findings are recorded and analysed to identify strengths and address areas that require improvement. Overall this has confirmed our programme delivery is very effective and employers are very satisfied. Due to this success our organisation has continued to grow creating partnerships with many Dental Practices throughout Scotland.
