BTEC Level 3 Health & Social Care students went on course related visits to Wimbledon Ambulance Station on Wed 4th and Fri 6th December 2019. Staff present who organised the trip were Senior Pastoral Tutor Dev Kanagasundaram and his former South Thames College colleague Chris Hutchinson, who had previously worked as a Paramedic in the London Ambulance Service for 28 years.
The students were given talks by London Ambulance Service (LAS) staff about their roles, pathways into the LAS, day-to-day duties and challenges etc. There were then questions and answers throughout their tour including in the back of an ambulance with Clinical Team Managers Rob Morgan and Lisa Vennart. The experiential learning counts as evidence towards our student’s qualifications.
