It's not too late to apply for a course to start this September!
Many of our students progress to the world of work or higher education, read our Alumni stories to find out where our students went after College.
As I was a Hairdressing Apprentice at Lancaster & Morecambe College over 10 years ago, when I opened my own salon I really wanted to help a young person to learn the skills of the industry and pass on my knowledge.
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.
The tutors at Lancaster & Morecambe College taught me a lot of key skills including customer service, colour and product knowledge and hairdressing theory that I would need in the future. Ann was a great tutor and mentor, and she definitely helped me with my confidence during my time at College.
My biggest accomplishment since leaving College is the progress I have made over the years to becoming a fully qualified Barber. I now have regular returning clients who are happy with my services, and lots of barbering knowledge which has helped me improve my skills and enable me to progress to the position I am at now.
100% do it, there are many knowledgeable tutors at LMC who are very supportive, there to help you thrive and achieve what you want from the course! It’s also a good opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.
I would recommend doing a hairdressing course at LMC, I learnt so many skills over the time I attended that I can carry through my career as a hair stylist.
The College has always been a great place for learning resources, I’ve always enjoyed going into College even though I wasn’t ever academically inclined. Whenever I’ve needed to gain any qualifications in my life, LMC has always ticked all the boxes.
