September saw the official start of the brand new GCSE equivalent Level 2 Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy qualification.  Our students are showing great promise as they explore the hair and beauty sector, looking at what this dynamic industry is about and how it links to many other industries. Learning at Room97 Creative Academy offers a blend of theory and practical experience to ensure students are motivated and engaged.  Here is what our learners from Wakefield City Academy think about the course so far:

“I love it here, learning new things.  It’s super fun!”

“I like how the people are kind and actually help you instead of treating us babyish”

“I did a fishtail!!!

“In this course I’m enjoying learning new things and getting help and feedback on my dummy head.”

Berni Hart, Internal Quality Assurance Manager at Room97 said, “We are thrilled at how the students have committed to this course and are showing much progress as well as enthusiasm in their studies.”

The VTCT Level 2 Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy is just one of many programmes that Room97 Creative Academy can offer as part of the Schools Partnership Programme working with local secondary schools to offer a vocational pathway into a career in Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy.
