I started my Hairdressing career at the age of 16 as an Apprentice which gave me a solid foundation to develop my passion for the industry where I worked my way up to Level 3. I gained further qualifications in Beauty Therapy Level 2 & Level 3 which broadened my skills. I have been in education for 19 years and really love to see our students develop a wide range of skills progressing through the levels leading to secure employment, some even opening their own salons.
