    “The teachers were really great and very knowledgeable. The college is very welcoming, friendly, positive and supportive, and it’s a great environment to study in. After my course I’m going to continue working in a barber's to gain more experience and then I’m going to open my own business, which has always been my goal. Doing this course has been a big step towards achieving my goal.”
