Care home offers students experience

NURSING students are being offered to train at a care home in Sonning.

Sunrise of Sonning in Old Bath Road has launched a scheme offering hands-on experience for students to go with their university studies.

Their first student is currently undertaking a five-week placement.

Annegy Mataso, who is in her 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 of the home, 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.”
