LANIE PRICE | SIXTH FORM STUDENT
I enjoyed hair in year 11 and continued as the experience with CWLC during year 11 encouraged me to take it further. The tutor offers help and advice and is an exceptional teacher. Having our own salon on site that is used by the community encourages a professional environment and has been fantastic preparation for our future careers.
