Over the coming weeks, we'll be telling you the stories of our staff and students who are doing amazing things during the COVID-19 pandemic, from starting their own businesses to working on the front line to help those in need.
BCoT student helps those in need during COVID-19 pandemic
Toni-Marie is currently studying Level 3 Patisserie and Confectionery at BCoT and has recently taken a role in helping on the front line during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Before the pandemic, Toni-Marie worked as a waitress at a golf club, but has since started a job in a care home helping those in need. Toni-Marie began her new role at the beginning of March and along with training for a new role, she’s also needed to learn about Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and is required to wear full protective equipment when working.
Toni-Marie’s role at the care home includes a range of tasks to assist residents. She helps residents get washed, dressed, fed and ensures medical care is given too.
Despite the challenges that come with a new role, Toni-Marie is incredibly positive, she said: “The best thing about my role is seeing how happy the residents can be in such a hard time, a zoom call was arranged with a church and it made everyone so happy.”
