Officially opened 9th February 2017, Abbotsford has a newly completed state-of-the-art Training Centre situated on the former site of the company’s head office in Glenrothes Fife.
The company has taken this decision to create a training facility to develop and support their staff in the ever-changing Care profession. The centre is currently working with the Scottish Qualifications Authority to become an Accredited Centre by the end of 2017.
The main space of the facility incorporates a lecture theatre / training room incorporating state of the art build in visual / audio presentation equipment suitable to seminars, workshops and conferences. We also have catering facilities available adjacent to the training area.

The building has been refurbished and designed to be a multi-use facility which is accessible.
