Health and social care students visit The Willow Tree centrePublished: November 10, 2017
Health and social care students visited the Willow Tree Centre which is a specialist bespoke provision within Telford College where students who have severe learning difficulties and complex needs come to learn.
The health and social care students looked at holistic and sensory care that some people need on a daily basis.
They learned about empathy and how you need to walk in someone else’s shoes to truly understand what life can be like for people who are dependent on others.
The students were truly inspired by their visit and have had long discussions about learning and physical difficulties.
Sarah Jones, headteacher at The Willow Tree centre, guided the students around and took time out of her day to explain the different activities they offer their students to help them become more independent.

Tracy Leah, student manager for health and social care, added: “We give our students the skills and experiences for their future careers, this activity really highlighted what it’s like working in a high-needs establishment.”
