“After leaving sixth form I wanted to pursue a career in drama but am also interested in beauty therapy and continued to do this alongside my drama ambitions. I joined the College on a Level 3 Performing Arts Drama course and from this progressed to the HNC in Performing Arts. I really enjoyed the courses and applied to drama schools and gained some offers but my heart wasn’t really in it. I decided to enrol onto the Level 2 in Beauty Therapy as I still had an interest in it and last year I started the Level 3 course “I have really enjoyed the Level 3 course as it is really challenging, especially anatomy and physiology. I feel the course has made me a better therapist because of the practical and theory elements which have made me a more capable and rounded therapist.
“After the Level 2 course I was offered a job at the Regis Beauty Salon in Debenhams which I was able to do alongside my College course. It was great for me to practise my skills and I have now
secured a job at Sensoria which will offer me some excellent training opportunities in a high-end salon where I can develop higher-level technical skills. “I will continue to work at Sensoria as a full-time Beauty Therapist. I hope to gain more experience and further training, and my ambition is to open my own beauty therapy salon.”
