Student Case Study
Charlotte Jones said: “I have completed both my Level 2 and 3 Apprenticeships in Hairdressing at Suffolk New College and in a salon. Dealing with clients everyday has given me lots of confidence. College was great, the tutors were really helpful and we had the opportunity to attend extra courses to expand our ideas. It was great to meet new people who were in the same situation as me. Having finished my apprenticeship in Level 3, I have now been offered the opportunity to work on a cruise liner and can’t wait to start my new challenge.”
