Social Corporate Responsibility - Salvation Army

We regularly contribute into helping Community Projects and our Social Corporate Responsibility.

Yesterday we had the pleasure of 8 ladies/service users from The Salvation Army attend our academy to be models for our NVQ level 1 hairdressing students.  It was a busy morning as the students worked hard to progress their skills learnt so far and to help the ladies feel comfortable and at ease.

Feedback by Anni Humes MBE (Senior Elder, Gateshead Community Church)    - "Girls just to say thank you for this morning our ladies loved the treat and were all very pleased with their styles"

It was a pleasure to have them attend with us and well done everyone!

Prince's Trust 1 week course - November 2013

We've had a fantastic week at the academy as we've not only been busy with our courses such as barbering, hairdressing and beauty therapy we've also had a group of ladies attend a 1 week course with us through The Prince's Trust.

The Prince's Trust works really hard offering potential students fantastic opportunities to help them progress and by working together we've manage to put together a course that's a perfect taster into the hair and beauty sector. 

The 1 week course was mainly worked around nail art but the students also gained hands on experience of hot stones massage, shampoo and blow drying hair, hand massages etc.

The students have had a great time and a few have progressed onto our study progamme courses in hair and beauty training so it's been a great success!

Well done to all the staff and all the students that attended with us x

We're holding another FREE 1 week course commencing 20th January 2014 if anyone is interested please contact us for details - 0191 4777764

Barbering Courses at ALD Hair, Beauty and Barbering

We commenced our barbering course in May 2013 and it's been a great success.  Paul Stewart our barbering tutor joined our team to deliver/teach the VRQ level 2 Certificate in barbering qualification and has been doing a fantastic job.  With lots of years experience as a successful barber he's able to pass on all of his knowledge and skills he's gained onto our students.

Our students range from 16-18 Study Programme courses to Adult Learning courses.  Paul is guiding all of the students through their courses and they are coming along fantastic and gaining so much experience.

We're offering free barbering hair cuts on the course days which is not only great for the customers but fab hands on experience for our students watched closely by Paul.

We're also running Traditional Wet Shaving courses too for students who are wanting to learn that little bit more!

Macmillan fund raising days x

Each year we help to raise money for the Macmillan charity by offering blow drys, manicures, cakes, coffee, tea etc all for donations to the fund.  Our students and staff all participate and work very hard to help make the day special, enjoyable and successful.   In the three years we've we managed to raise over £1000.00!

We've also been part of 'Bin it for Breast Cancer' which is a fantastic way of collecting old bras for clients and students which then get converted to cash and donated to the Breast Cancer fund.

We would like to thanks everyone that has attended our charity events and for all the students and staff's hard work in helping us raise money for such fantastic causes.
