There would be two groups of students – a group from Pathways Social Science & Care, who are studying a unit called Health Sector: An Introduction. Part of this unit involves them investigating Health Care services offered to patients and carers for a variety of conditions and health care needs. The other group of students are a group from NC Social Care Level 5, who are studying a unit called Understanding the Needs of the Older Person. We’d also invite any interested students from HNC Social Care and our NC Social Care Level 6 group, some of whom are on placements working with service users who have dementia, and there might be one or two Psychology students with an interest in dementia and working in this sector.
The students are a mix of mature and younger students, including some students who will have had experience of caring for a family member or voluntary/paid experience in the care sector, although most will not have had much ‘hands on’ experience as they’re at a relatively early stage in their studies.
