Hello, we are Emmanuelle and Johanne and we are working with Self Directed Support Scotland to develop a National Training Framework for Personal Assistants.

We are contacting you to ask for your view and ideas about training for your Personal Assistants.

We know that PA Employers are responsible for training their PAs, but that training isn’t always easy to come by. Our project is about finding out what training is already available in Scotland, what type of training Employers and PAs would like, and what is missing that could be developed.

By the end of the project, early next year, we will write a proposal to develop a training framework that will make it easier for Employers to train and manage their PAs.

We would like to ask you some questions about training for your PAs, and we would be incredibly grateful if you could please take 5- 10 minutes to answer the survey at the following link:


We are also interested in your PAs views, so after you submit the survey, you will arrive at the thank you page. If you scroll down, you will see a button to EMAIL THE SURVEY which will allow you to send it to your PA or other employers (or you can forward this email). The questions are the same except we do not ask the PAs about budget.

We look forward to hearing from you and will use what you, other Employers, and PAs tell us about training to develop the framework.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss it with us further, please contact us by email.
