"I love hairdressing as I get to work in a really creative environment and I enjoy working with clients. I struggled at school but Northampton College has been really supportive and helped me to build my confidence back up and gain experience in the workplace. My assessors on the hairdressing course were brilliant and allowed me to build a rapport with clients and get over my anxiety. They really put me at ease and were so supportive.
Working in the salon at Rocco & Co throughout my Apprenticeship has been amazing and I’m now back at college to do my barbering, adding another string to my bow. It’s a good skill to have for the future.
I’ve loved my time at college learning from such a diverse group of not just staff but also other students as well. Being with such a wide mix of people opens your eyes to different ways of doing things and you take on board methods and techniques you might not have been aware of previously. It’s been a brilliant experience."
