Student Profile.

Name: Jade Williams
Course: LV 2 City & Guilds Diploma in Women’s Hairdressing
School: Eggars School

“I chose to study hair to accompany my beauty therapy qualification, in the hope that it will give me that something extra when applying for jobs. I also really enjoy being creative to make other people feel great.

My ultimate goal is just to be successful and really good at what I do. I have secured an amazing job by doing my work experience through college, I have already gained the opportunity to work my way up, and so for me it can't get much better than that!

To anyone hoping to study at BCoT, all I can say is do it. It's a great college with amazing staff and the course opportunities are great. The college organises so many things to help you get to where you want to be in life. This is the second time I've attended this college the first was back in 2010 and it has only got better!”
