7th July 2021

Congratulations to Hairdressing learners Mercedes Bonde and Katie Wilkinson who have successfully found employment after completing their studies at the College.

Mercedes, who has been a model pupil on the way to completing Levels 1, 2 and 3 in Hairdressing during her three years at the College, has joined the team at Couture - a stylish and professional Hair & Beauty Salon in the heart of Hull's historic Old Town area - on a part-time basis. Katie, meanwhile, has just completed the Level 3 Hairdressing course at Freedom Centre with 100% attendance and is now all set to start work at Bellissima Hair Salon in Anlaby.

Reflecting on Mercedes’ achievements, course tutor Jackie Jennison said: "It has been wonderful to see Mercedes’ progression during her time with us. Her confidence has really grown and she has lovely client care skills, which will serve her well in her new job. She has been such a willing learner during her three years at the College.

“Not only did she boast an impressive attendance rate of 98.6% this year, but she has also always been so supportive to me and her fellow learners. I am so proud of her and everything she has achieved and wish her the very best in her new role at Couture.

“With regards to Katie, it has been a real privilege to see her confidence flourish throughout the year. Like Mercedes, she has fantastic client care skills, excellent knowledge and possesses some great colouring and cutting techniques.

“She has been a pleasure to teach and will no doubt be a credit to the hairdressing industry. I will miss her so much but wish her nothing but the greatest of luck with the rest of her career journey.”
