Local student celebrates Health and Social Care award

05 September 2017 15:37


Every year, West Thames College acknowledges the achievements of students who have excelled throughout the academic year via their Student Awards. This year, Caremark proudly sponsored and presented local student, Ieva Klimait as the winner of the Health and Social Care Award 2017.

“I chose to study Health and Social Care because I’ve always been interested in helping others and had a dream of working at the hospital. I was very surprised when the College informed me that I am going to be awarded as the Caremark Student of the Year, but I feel very proud of myself and this award helped me to increase my self-esteem,” said Ieva.

Ieva was praised for her very positive attitude to learning, consistently achieving high grades and completing assignments ahead of time. Tutors said she has developed leadership skills and is always motivating and helping her peers.

Ieva is now kicking off a new term as a Level 3, Year 1 student and is very much looking forward to a bright future in care: “My long-term goal is to study at university and become successful midwife, supporting local mothers and their new-born babies. I think it would be an incredible role to fulfil.”

Ann Hoggan of West Thames College thanked Caremark for their continued support to the Student Award programme and stressed how important the involvement of local companies is to the continued success of local graduates.

About Caremark

Caremark is one of the UK's leading home care providers with over 100 offices in the UK and Ireland. We support over 6000 customers and employ more than 4000 carers every single week across the UK.

Established in 2005, Caremark is proud to be a wholly UK owned and operated home care franchise which has an established and successful UK based network. 43% of Caremark franchisees are female, which is almost double the national franchising average and is a figure we are really proud of. Not only that, but a large proportion of our senior management team are women, including our Finance Director, National Operations Manager and National Training Manager.

The UK has an ageing population which is estimated to grow some 58% in the next 20 years. As the demand for more complex and highly professional levels of care increases, we continue to provide a quality service to those in need of help and support. There is also a developing awareness that care at home can benefit not only those individuals in need but the hospitals and other organisations that are also responsible for looking after them.
