Sarah Smith Hairdressing Apprentice

Sarah, 18, is currently studying a Hairdressing Apprenticeship at Swindon College and working at The Works Hair Salon in Swindon to complete her qualification.

When I started the apprenticeship programme, I learnt so much I just wanted to carry on and get as many skills and experience as possible. I completed the Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Hairdressing in 1 year, when it usually takes 2 years to complete, which is a great personal achievement.

I get to meet new people all the time as I manage a full column of clients at the salon. This course has definitely improved my confidence and I now find it easier to talk to people in person and on the phone.
I have made a lot of friends here and I am happy to say that The Works keeps on the majority of their apprentices. I know that when I finish, I have a guaranteed full-time job at this salon, which is really motivating.
