Course taken: Hairdressing Level 2
Is this the first course you have done at LMC?
No, I did the 25 week Level 2 Hairdressing Certificate last year.
What are the best things about your course?
You have lots of time to learn new skills – the NVQ goes in to greater depth than the Hairdressing Level 2 certificate. I’ve also made friends for life on this course.
Why did you choose your course?
I wanted to build on the skills learnt on the certificate level 2, and learn a wider range of cutting and colouring.
Why did you choose Lancaster & Morecambe College?
I chose LMC because it’s my nearest college and I enjoyed being at this college previously.
What would you say to someone who was thinking about doing the course?
Definitely go for it. I debated whether or not to do another certificate but chose the NVQ so that I would be industry recognised, have more hands on experience and the opportunity to work on a real client base in a real salon environment.
What has been your biggest accomplishment whilst studying at LMC?
Learning how to do short haircuts and highlights as those were the things I struggled with the most.
Any other comments?
The Certificate Level 2 was a taster course, I have really established myself and progressed on to the NVQ Level 2 and feel like I have really accomplished something by passing the NVQ after only doing a 25 week course beforehand. I have had a lot of support from my tutors and they have given me so much confidence. Their support and teaching has been paramount to me achieving so much in such a short period of time.
