Students Celebrate Work Experience Success As They Begin Optometry Degrees

Students Celebrate Work Experience Success As They Begin Optometry Degrees

Two students who started out on work experience placements with Suzanne Dennis Optometrist are celebrating success after sailing through their A levels and gaining places at Manchester and Bradford Universities to study optometry.

Rachael Finch from Standish and Joe Higham from Shevington worked at Suzanne Dennis’ Standish and Eccleston practices respectively, before being offered Saturday positions. Their roles covered everything from assisting in reception, spending time with patients and learning all about general eye care.

Joe Higham says:

“I feel very excited and honoured to embark on such a prestigious optometry course at university. I am very excited to start at the University of Bradford and am looking forward to the career that is now ahead of me in optics. I would like to thank Suzanne, as without her giving me a chance with work experience leading to a Saturday job this wouldn't have happened and I wouldn't have gained valuable experience, which has greatly helped with my application.”
Suzanne Dennis added: “We are all delighted for them and very proud. They have both been excellent students. Going on work experience placements just proves that it can help with career prospects. We’d like to wish them all the best for the future and hope that when they’ve qualified they’ll come back and work for us.”

Suzanne Dennis Optometrist has four practices in Eccleston, Coppull, Parbold and Standish.
