I decided to go back to hairdressing in Carlow Institute of Further Education and Training after having my son as I had lost confidence in myself and my hairdressing skills. I also wanted to gain qualifications that are recognized in the hairdressing industry as I had no qualifications to show for three years of training, I had previously done prior to having my son.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and completed the two years gaining my junior and senior trade certificate and QQI level 5 hairdressing award and QQI level 6 business award. I also made lifelong friends whilst on the course. I found all the teachers helpful and knowledgeable, kind caring and very approachable. I have also gained valuable advice since leaving the course and have constantly upskilled gaining my Master Diploma in hairdressing and Diploma in Education and Training. I am very proud to say I now am a hairdressing tutor.
