Care home residents so impressed with industry placement students

Two of the Sixth Form’s Health & Social Care students – Cassie Johnson and Leah Hurley - were showered with praise by residents and staff at The Oaks Residential Care Home in Upminster, where they carried out their Industry Placement.

Manager Jenny Freeman could not speak more highly of the two students, who both completed the Health & Social Care BTEC Extended Diploma this year.

She said: “Well done to Cassie and Leah for putting so much into their placement here. They both made a really big impact during their time with us and the residents loved having them around. We will all miss them so much but we wish them all the best for the future.”

The girls were sad to say farewell to everyone – but they both went back to the care home last month to meet with the new students who were taking over on the placement from them, to show them the ropes and introduce them to the residents.

All students studying the Health & Social BTEC Extended Diploma undertake an industry work placement as part of the course.

Now they have left college, Cassie is studying Early Childhood Studies at Anglia Ruskin University and Leah is at Royal Holloway University studying Psychology.
