Buxton & Leek College students have been developing their skills in a real-life workplace setting.

Nine students studying Level 2 Health & Social Care took part in an intergenerational project organised in partnership with Derbyshire County Council and Whitestones Care Home in Chapel-en-le-Frith.

Throughout an eight-week programme, the students built up relationships with residents through organised activities such as quizzes, games and sing-alongs, while also reminiscing about their past through engaging conversations.

Resident Jean Rodwell, from Edale, said: “Everyone has been marvellous. They help and encourage me to do things for myself for which I am very grateful.” Mrs Rodwell is pictured with student Millie Stacey-Pearson. Photo contributed.
