Visit from a past Student that has successfully Progressed

progression of Student from Pre16 to Study Programme to Adult Learning to Employment

On Tuesday this week we were very proud to have one of our past students, Ashley Quin attend our academy to chat with our current pre16 & 16-18 years study programme students.  Ashley joined us approx 7 years ago as a pre16 student and trained with us in hair, beauty therapy and barbering over the years she attended progressing to E2E (Study Programme) and then onto Adult Learning.  During Tuesday's visit Ashley spoke confidently and had lots valuable advice for our current students. She spoke about her feelings of when she didn't want to take part and advised the students on how and why it was do important to cooperate. She also let them know that she lucky with all the chances Julie, Julia and Paula had given her and how it could have been very different for her if she hadn't complied with the programme.  Ashley also advised them that she knew of someone who attended at the same time as her and they didn't take part and attend and they ended up in prison.  Our current students took this visit very positively and hopefully will follow in Ashley's advice and journey as she's now in full time employment and holds up to level 2 Barbering qualifications  :)
