What's On

Why did you decide to return to education? How did it feel to return?

After having my children and being on maternity leave, I decided I wanted to change my career and do something I have always wanted to do but had previously never had the opportunity to pursue.

Going back into education and learning something new was a big step, so I was nervous at first – but my tutor Leah and classmates were so welcoming right from the start that I instantly felt relaxed and have loved spending Thursday evenings at College ever since.

Why did you choose Oldham College?

I chose Oldham College as the College offered the opportunity to learn part-time, which fitted around my family commitments.

I also chose to come to the College because of the facilities. Having Salon 7, a commercial salon, on-site helped with the practical side of learning, as we used some of the facilities – such as the sauna.

Have you enjoyed the course?

I have absolutely loved this course! I have learnt so much about the beauty industry already, and I can’t wait to learn more.

How has Oldham College supported you throughout your time here?

My tutor Leah has been incredible. She has supported me throughout my course and is always there to help whenever I have needed it.

She always goes above and beyond, and has given me so much confidence not only in my abilities as a beauty therapist, but also in myself.

What will you be doing next?

I have been offered a position in a local beauty salon. The salon has also given me the opportunity to further my career and continue my education in the beauty industry, by moving onto Level 2 Beauty Therapy while working.

What advice do you have for anyone else considering a return to education?

If the thought is there, then go ahead and do it – you won’t regret it!
