Wallasey Orthodontics is an SME working with children and young people through the NHS and also offering private orthodontic services to young people and adults. They recruited student Lucy Jones through Wirral Met College supported internship programme to make a connection with the local community and to support a young person getting into work.
Dianne Collins, Registered Manager at the Orthodontics said, “Lucy is an invaluable member of the team and is learning all the time with our support and that of her tutors.” Lucy has previously studied a level 3 IT course and wanted a job to become more independent so has taken a work placement. Lucy said, “I have to thank my wonderful work placement and Wirral Met for the opportunity and all the support. It has allowed me to learn new skills and become more confident.”
