Anything else I need to know?

Our learners are encouraged to participate in a number of extra-curricular activities, including regular trips and workshops, attending local, regional and national events, taking part in charity fundraising as well as entering industry competitions. Speaking of which, a number of our hairdressing apprentices took part in the national Wella Xposure competition this year making it through to the regional heats and then onto the national finals.
