Helping during covid-19

HSDC student Jayden Jeffery started her one-year Level 2 Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care at our South Downs Campus in September 2019.

When HSDC had to close at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, she decided to volunteer as a general assistant at Wellington Vale Dementia Home in Waterlooville as a trained carer.

“HSDC prepared me in some ways for this: I knew the proper uses of PPE and other subjects we’d covered have enabled me to fly through my online training. My training has helped me to realise that you really shouldn’t be in the care industry if you don’t care.”
