Maddison Bretherton

Studied: Level 3 Hairdressing Apprenticeship 

Previous School: Parklands High School

Now: Self-employed within the hairdressing industry

 

The thing I enjoy most about my Apprenticeship is the opportunities and hands-on experience that my workplace and Blackburn College has provided me with.

What made you decide to study at Blackburn College?

I chose an Apprenticeship because I was already a Saturday girl in a salon. I really enjoyed this and I already knew classroom based learning wasn't for me. I'd highly recommend an apprenticeship with Blackburn College as it gives you hands-on industry experience and it has given me the perfect start to my career.

 

What did you like best about Blackburn College? And why!

At Blackburn College, my Tutor helps me to stay on top of studies and offers me support and guidance in any areas where I may be struggling. The weekly Workshops at College helped me to develop on skills and my knowledge to take back into salon.

The thing I enjoy most about my Apprenticeship is the opportunities and hands-on experience that my workplace and Blackburn College has provided me with. So an Apprenticeship gave me the opportunities to build my skills in this industry and it also let me earn while I was learning.
