NULC hairdressing apprentice wins national competition

Clare Page, 33, from Tean, is a hairdressing apprentice at Newcastle-under-Lyme College (NULC). Clare works at the hair and beauty salon Shades of Tean, Staffordshire.

Clare was named National Champion - First Year Blow Dry when she won the competition at the Blackpool Winter Gardens last week.

"The AHT competition win for Clare was fantastic for someone who is only five months into their training programme." Said NULC's Transform Hair, Beauty and Floristry Centre Manager, Anthony Keates.

"Clare received great training and support from her lecturer Amy Stott which, along with the encouragement from the salon, was instrumental to Clare's success."

NULC offers a Level 2 Apprenticeship and a Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in hairdressing. These allow students to learn from professional hairdressers on the job whilst also receiving tuition in the College which features its own Transform professional salon where students are supervised while working on customers' hair.

Said Clare: "I'm so grateful to be given the opportunity to enter the competition – and to win has made my dreams come true. I'd like to thank Lynn Plant and the girls at
Shades Hair and Beauty for all their support and Anthony and the team at NULC for their encouragement and belief in me."

NULC is currently training around 1,000 apprentices. For further information on what NULC can do for business including recruitment, training and apprenticeships, please visit:
