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.”
“HSDC provided me with the opportunity for autonomous study and the choice of subjects that I wanted to study, which helped me develop relevant knowledge as well as relevant skills for the workplace.”Lucas Ratcliffe, A Level and CTEC student
I’m very, very happy, I didn’t expect to do so well. The College has been helpful and supportive. I loved my courses, and the teachers were really good – every single one of them. The facilities are great, but it’s the staff that really make this place.Matthew Randell, A Level student
My experience at the college was enjoyable and productive, with thoroughly helpful people surrounding you, an excellent experience. I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was, with the work shop time and experience I had, it was a great two years preparing me for the next stage.Edward Smith, BTEC student
