Following on from Sam’s recent Agored Cymru accredited course in Health and Safety and Manual Handling he has had the opportunity to put into practice skills learnt in a real working environment.
After an initial employer meeting with Diane Purnell, Manager at Foxtroy Residential Care Home, Sam was offered the opportunity of a work experience placement. Sam has since been buddied up with Paul the Caretaker at the home. Paul has been encouraging and proactive towards Sam involving him in a range of duties which have included watering the plants, painting and general ground maintenance of the premises.
Feedback has been really positive;
He is enjoying the variety of work and the opportunity to meet new people, develop on his existing skills, and gain further life and work experiences, and as a result, Sam has continued with Foxtroy as a Volunteer.
