“When I finished school, I didn’t have many GCSE’s as I wasn’t really in school that often. Coming to College effectively gave me a second chance, in that whilst studying I could not only get my Maths and English GCSE’s, but also I could study in an area that I was really passionate about. I was able at College to prepare myself to be in a job role that I really wanted, and the course led to my first employment in a Salon.

In my current role as a Hairdressing lecturer here at EKC Sheppey College, I ensure that the students are up to date with current trends in the industry, and that their knowledge allows them to have the opportunities that I had in the wider industry.
