Congratulations to Ashantai, who has been presented with the Student of the Year Award by her Hair@theAcademy tutors!

Ashantai has been studying for her VTCT Introduction to the Hair & Beauty Sector certificate this year.

Ashantai said:

“I’ve loved hairdressing this year. I feel very happy to get the Student of the Year certificate. When I was presented with my certificate my tutor told me they are proud of my work this year. I feel proud, confident and happy that I have done well”.

Her tutor Jo Fison said: “I am bursting with pride! I have seen Ashantai develop in confidence and work so hard to develop her practical and communication skills. All this within a primarily hearing environment… Brilliant!”

Hairdressing tutor Claire said:

“Ashantai’s confidence has grown so much, and it’s lovely to see her communicating and contributing within the group.”

Ashantai will continue on to Level 2 of the course next year.
