Students' work experience places emphasis on caring
POTTERY was all in a day's work when Stroud students spent a week in a social care setting.
The learners from the South Gloucestershire and Stroud College (SGS) joined residents at the Novalis Trust's Paradise House community for the two-week work experience placement.
The health and social care students assisted residents in sessions including pottery, craft and textiles, gardening and nature studies.
SGS work placement officer, Vanessa Haughey, said the learners' experiences had been achieved thanks to a comprehensive Novalis timetable.

"The experience is invaluable in giving the students an idea of what job roles they can potentially progress into," Ms Haughey said.
"The experience will also help them to identify the grades they need to achieve for the future.
"This will be useful if they are hoping to gain access to university."
