Christine Maley - Hairdressing

“I wanted to do something creative for a career and I’d been in hospitality but it wasn’t for me. I knew of this NorthTec course because I had done my hospitality training here, and now that I’m doing hairdressing I’m amazed at how much I love it. I love all of it.”

“I didn’t realise I would be so into it – or this good at it. Our class is a real mix of ages and backgrounds but we really gel as a group and I love the added experience of having clients come here for us to work with. We get to put what we learn into practice, as well as build confidence in our skills and in customer care.”

“I’m really hoping to get an apprenticeship locally and continue to learn and work within the industry. Doing this course helps us to be more salon-ready, more confident, and more useful when we start an apprenticeship. My dream for the longer term is to run my own salon.”
