Rutledge Trainee's Interview - Series 2

Can you briefly tell us about yourself and your career?

I have been working in the Hairdressing industry since 2013. I am currently doing a Level 3 Apprenticeship with Rutledge, whilst working with Roco Hairdressing.  


Can you tell us about your experiences on the course?

I currently attend Rutledge on a weekly basis, for both practical and theory based training sessions. I have taken a lot from these sessions as they have assisted my overall development as a hairdresser; building my confidence and equipping me with valuable client relationship skills, as well as assisting my cutting and colouring skills.


What has been the main benefit from the course?

I think the main benefit of doing this course for me is gaining a professional qualification within hairdressing and developing the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in this industry. The course has also been a great confidence booster for me.


Do you feel the support (from course lecturers) & facilities were adequate?

The Tutors are brilliant, I am always kept informed of my progress. The support provided is excellent and the learning is enjoyable, the facilities and learning environment are also top class.


If you could sum up the course in a few words what would they be?

Invaluable, rewarding, and flexible. The course itself is quite challenging but you get out what you put in.


Would you recommend doing a qualification at Rutledge to friends or colleagues?

Yes. Rutledge is an excellent place to do a qualification, the facilities are excellent and the tutors and staff go above and beyond to accommodate the students.  The flexibility of the course was also ideal for my working situation.


What’s next in your career?

When I finish my Level 3, I will move into a Senior Stylist Position.
