Sandville centre thanks Cardiff and Vale College students for their support

A group of Complementary Therapy students from Cardiff and Vale College have been thanked for their hard work during work placements at a South Wales self-help centre.

The students practised Reflexology at the Sandville Self-help Centre which is based in Bridgend and Porthcawl. Sandville treats people with a range of illnesses, as well as their friends and relatives. The Level 3 students also received treatments from the centre’s therapists.

Colin Karp, a Reflexologist at Sandville, visited the students at the College’s Colcot Road site in a personal capacity to thank the students at give them some feedback.

“The response that I have had has been very positive,” Colin said. “Everyone has said that the students have been very courteous and effective. Congratulations to them and many thanks to the College for all of the help that you have given us.”

CAVC Head of Hairdressing, Beauty & Complementary Therapies Ceri Evans said: “Working with Sandville Self-help Centre has given our learners extensive knowledge in treating individuals with a wide variety of long-term illnesses. This experience has encouraged some of our learners to continue their work experience into the voluntary sector and really make a difference in their communities. Our learners have enhanced employment opportunities as a result of this work experience as well as increasing confidence in their own ability – it’s a great partnership for Cardiff and Vale College learners.”
