Student testimonials

  • “I have gained so much confidence after working in a salon with a language barrier. Also, being in the workplace has made me realise that I want to continue to do my studies in an actual workplace. I am going to complete my college course and then do an apprenticeship in barbering. It really is one of the best things I have ever done. It gives you such a confidence boost and is going to help in the long run your career. “

  • “My biggest achievement was learning the reception computer systems, it was quite challenging to get used to but with practice it was easier. Another achievement was learning some Greek words such as how to say ‘good morning’, ‘hello’, ‘good evening’, ‘how are you’. I found learning these phrases helped with my customer service skills to Greek guests.”
