Students at City of Wolverhampton College will be paying tribute to the work and dedication of social care staff during the pandemic by writing messages of thanks on a giant remembrance wall during the first Social Care Day of Remembrance and Reflection on Thursday, March 17.
Students working towards diplomas in health and social care and counselling, as well as those doing health-focussed access to higher education and foundation degree courses, will be leading the tributes, with students from other courses, as well as college staff, also invited to also leave messages on the wall at the college’s Wellington Road campus.
The students chose to take part in the day of remembrance as many of them have part time jobs as care assistants, or volunteer at New Cross Hospital, care homes, day centres, food banks or PCR testing centres, and have first-hand experience of working in the social care sector during the pandemic.
Amanda Lawton, curriculum manager for health and social care at the college, said: “As our students work, or aspire to work, in the sector the commitment and dedication of social care staff during the pandemic is very close to their hearts and they want to pay tribute to the work they have done during the last two years.”
