Apply today for a full time, T Level or Apprenticeship course staring next September!
Anyone who is interested in starting the Hairdressing Apprenticeship, I would say you gain lots of personal and hairdressing skills from doing the course and it is definitely worth taking the hairdressing qualification.
Emma started her Hairdressing journey at Kendal College, but decided it wasn’t convenient for her job at Prestige Salon in Lancaster, and transferred to Lancaster & Morecambe College to complete her Apprenticeship. In 2020 she started her Hairdressing Level 2 Apprenticeship with LMC with her current role at Prestige. One of the main skills that Emma developed during her Apprenticeship was an improved confidence in dealing with customers.
I learnt lots of new skills at College such as doing consultations with clients. These initial consultatations with clients allowed me to gather the correct information from them to make sure I gave them the exact style they wanted. Learning how to communication well with clients was an important skill for me to improve as I wasn’t very confident beforehand, but now I feel much more confident in that aspect.
While doing her Apprenticeship, Emma spoke fondly of her course tutors, expressing how they taught her valuable skills and how they helped her during the course.
My College tutor in my first year was Tracy and then in my second year which was my last year was Danielle. Both of these tutors were really helpful and I learnt a lot from each of them
Emma feels her biggest accomplishment since leaving Lancaster & Morecambe College has been getting a Distinction in her Apprenticeship, End Point Assessment exam, which was a great achievement for her.
When Emma was asked to share any advice for potential students thinking about applying to the Hairdressing Apprenticeship, she said:
Anyone who is interested in starting this course, will develop lots of skills in hairdressing, such as shampooing, colouring and styling; it is definitely worth joining the course.
I love working with such keen and dedicated staff and students. I also like how every day is different because we attract such a wide range of students including year 11 from local high schools aged 16-18 who apply to the full time courses, to adult students who attend the part time courses. It’s nice to work with so many people from all different backgrounds and cultures who share a passion for cooking.
I would say that Hospitality & Catering industry isn’t an easy option, but it can be really rewarding and enjoyable if you work hard at it. It also has excellent job prospects at the end of the course, as the majority of our completing students gain full time employment within high class establishments
If you want the opportunity to use and develop practical skills, learn about an accessible vocational area, have fun, work hard and deal with the public then this is the course for you. LMC is a great community asset and I think the local district are lucky to have such a modern, flexible and engaging place of education.
