Artistic Director (Dawn)

Started working in a salon in West Bromwich (Hair Reaction) at age 13 as a Saturday girl where I stayed for 10 years

When I had my oldest son I returned back to work on a part time basis and after a year I moved to a new Salon where I worked fulltime

I moved to a salon as a senior stylist as I wanted more hours and went to work for the Opposition Hair Group where I worked for 6 years - after having my 2nd child I returned to work on a fulltime basis and then decided I wanted to return to college to complete my NVQ Level 3

I then did my A1 Assessor Award and began working fulltime at Sandwell College assessing learners out in the workplace which I did for 5 years.

At this time I did my V1 - Internal Verifiers award - now known as IQA

IOSH Managing Safely

Key skills in Maths English and ICT all at Level 2

I then went on to do a Certificate in Education PCE in Post 16 Education

Then I became a Fulltime Lecturer in Hairdressing and I have been a fulltime lecturer since but now feel it is time for a new challenge

I have since completed various qualifications

Safe Guarding Level 3 = CAF training

I have had regular training with Matrix and Wella in colour and colour correction

I achieved NVQ Level 3 in Hair extensions

I teach Level 2 and Level 3 learners and Apprentices and Advanced Apprentices
