Level 3 Hairdressing Course Leader
I have vast experience in hairdressing, an industry which I enjoy and feel passionate about. I started my career as an apprentice then became a senior stylist in a large salon, following this I started my own business and have been a salon owner of two successful salons. I always enjoyed training staff which led me to a career in teaching. I undertake continuous professional development to learn new techniques and trends which I am able pass on to the learners. My aim is to support learners through there qualification, help them develop excellent practical skills, customer care of a high standard and find employment in this exciting industry.
While studying at school I gained a job in a salon on a Saturday and from this great experience I decided to take hairdressing up as a career. I attended Calderdale College and qualified through an apprenticeship route. Having gained salon experience and further develop my skills I was approached to teach at the college where I had studied. I jumped at the opportunity and I have worked here ever since with all learners of all different abilities and ages. I am very passionate towards hairdressing and education and thoroughly enjoy sharing my skills and knowledge with learners to enable them to develop themselves and hopefully gain an exciting career in hairdressing.
