Hair & Beauty success stories
My time at College has prepared me for working in the industry and I’m looking forward to continuing to build on my skills and experience in beauty therapy within a spa setting.
The best opportunity at College is being able to work in the Graduate Salon with real clients. This has helped me to build professional skills and gain confidence.
The balance of being in the workplace whilst studying was ideal. The tutors are fantastic, I’d highly recommend becoming an apprenticeship.
