Skye Anderton, 17 and a student at Wigan and Leigh College studying Health and Social Care completed her first-year work placement at Norley Hall Care Home.
With aspirations to become a paramedic, a rewarding and exciting career where no two days are the same. She chose Norley Hall to complete her 25-hour work placement and gain experience in a care setting.
Looking to learn as much as possible, Skye quickly got involved in activities, chatting with residents, and learning all about the procedures in place that form the resident’s daily life.
Not falling short of things to do, Skye really enjoyed visiting the music museum with Activity Coordinator Julia and resident Pat. She described it as insightful as she was unaware that they go out on day trips weekly.

Skye has gained invaluable experience at Norley Hall and would happily recommend completing work placements in the home.
