Zoe Petrou, Head of Hairdressing

“I immensely enjoyed Level 3 Hairdressing; being a more mature student, initially I felt on edge but my tutors made me feel at ease inspiring me and giving me confidence to push myself to achieve the goals I had set for myself. In all I had an enjoyable and positive experience at College, obtaining a position quickly once completing my Level 3 at Top to Toe hair and beauty salon in Morecambe.“

Liyaa Popov, Level 3 Hairdressing
