Greta Kazlauskaite - Health and Social Care Level 3 Extended Diploma
In May 2017, students from Reading College held a thank you lunch for local employers who had provided Services to the Public students with work experience placements.
Greta Kazlauskaite, a Health and Social Care Level 3 Extended Diploma student, who helped organise the event, said: “When I started my work experience I found being around elderly people with dementia very challenging.
“Thankfully the Eton House staff were very supportive and helped me to get involved with running activities for the residents. My communication skills have soared.”
