A care home in Sonning has launched a scheme offering hands-on work experience for students to go alongside their university studies.
The first student to have their work experience at Sunrise of Sonning is currently undertaking a five-week placement.
Annegy Mataso, a third-year at the University of West London, said: “I am surprised at how much I have learnt in a short space of time and I really look forward to everything I will learn during the rest of my placement.”
Carmela Magbitang, general manager at Sunrise of Sonning, said: “I am really pleased to have been able to get the placement programme off the ground. This project has been a personal passion of mine and I am really looking forward to working more closely with Annegy and all future students.”
Sunrise of Sonning was rated ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and provides accommodation for persons who require nursing or personal care, dementia for persons over 65 years.
