Doing the Certificate in Hair, Beauty and Grooming gave me a foot-in-the-door to a job that has so many opportunities.

I always wanted to do hairdressing and I knew about the TPP course. The tutor put me on to my apprenticeship and I don’t think I would have even known about the job otherwise.

I was a shy person in school and learning how to deal with customers and talk on the phone to clients was really helpful. I didn’t just learn the techniques, I learned how to open up and be bubbly.

Doing the course can give you a foot in the door – I am qualified now and I’d like to keep going and become an assessor. The thing about hairdressing is there are so many opportunities, it’s really never-ending.
