Why did you chose the course you are studying?

I chose Hairdressing because I wanted to try something new. I had previously passed Music Level 2, but when I found out Croydon College did the Hairdressing course, I knew I had to apply as I was determined to try something new.


What are your future aspirations?

After I complete the Hairdressing course, I want to go to University to study Salon Management. This would allow me to gain valuable knowledge and experience in the industry since I would love to be the manager of my very own salon.


What have been your highlights whilst studying here at Croydon College?

Undoubtedly, the highlight of studying here at Croydon College is the outstanding support I have received from my teachers. They always put you and your success first by taking the time to ensure you feel comfortable in the work environment and understand lesson content.


Do you have any advice for future students?

Make sure you choose a subject that you are passionate about and always put in your best effort. Push yourself and take advantage of every opportunity given to you in order to gain experience and boost your skillset.
