Eight trainee paramedics are gaining invaluable work experience with Sanctuary Retirement Living in Worcester.

The students, from the University of Worcester, are spending two weeks shadowing staff at Noble House retirement living service in St John’s.

During the placements they will support with the care of residents, help with meals and activities and connect with family members.

Vicky Yeomans, registered retirement living manager at Noble House, said: “We are delighted to be hosting the students and enabling them to gain an understanding of the social care sector.

“Not only will it equip them with the skills they need in the future but it will also benefit our residents, who look forward to spending time with the younger generation.”

Sanctuary Retirement Living is offering the work experience at Noble House as part of a wider programme being run in partnership with Sanctuary Care across the Midlands.

More than 130 student paramedics, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and physician associates from the University of Worcester and Birmingham City University will be provided with placements at 20 different retirement services and care homes through the scheme.

University of Worcester students can also volunteer their time outside of the placements as part of The Worcester Award, an employability programme which encourages people to undertake activities in addition to their degree course.
