Aster Care provided work experience to two young students from South Downs College during 2016, who were completing their Level 2 Health & Social Care Diploma. They were given the opportunity to undertake some additional certificated theory training in Moving & Handling, Mental Capacity, Equality, Diversity & Inclusion, Emergency Aid, Safeguarding and Safe Handling of Medicines, as well as working alongside an experienced staff member to transfer learning into practice.

Both employees stated how valuable the experience was and have gone on to successfully work in the care sector. Luiz (above) returned to Aster Care as an employee in June 2018 and has shown such promise, commitment, and foresight that he has now been promoted to Key Worker for one of his service users.

Well Done Luiz!
