Danni had always wanted to go into Hairdressing so when she left school she started looking around at potential courses. After helping out at a local salon, she was offered an apprenticeship and enrolled at Exceed to study for her Hairdressing qualifications.
“I really enjoyed my training at Exceed. The tutors were great and, as students, we were all learning together so could help each other out. I passed my NVQ 2 and 3 in Hairdressing and one of the girls I met on the course is now one of my best friends.”
After qualifying, Danni started working at a salon but was offered an interesting office job because of her strong customer service skills (one of the key elements in the training at Exceed).
She accepted the job and is thoroughly enjoying her new role, particularly as she has been able to channel her creative skills in another direction.
She still works as a part-time, mobile hairdresser – mainly for friends and family – as the extra money comes in handy.
