Sunrise of Sonning, on Old Bath Road, has launched a scheme to give nursing students an opportunity to train and learn in a hands-on environment, in addition to their university studies. Their first placement student began on 21st January and is undertaking a five week placement.
This marks the first placement student that Sunrise Senior Living UK has taken on, and the company hopes to start introducing the scheme across its other care homes in the UK over the coming months.
Annegy Mataso, who is in her 3rd year at the University of West London (UWL), is the lucky student now working at Sunrise of Sonning care home. Following an assessment of the Community and a lot of paperwork to get the process signed off, Sunrise of Sonning was considered a suitable place for student placements and started looking for their first candidate.
