After the successful launch of Riverside College’s Centre of Excellence in Hair and Beauty earlier this year by celebrity hairdresser Lee Stafford, the first scholars have now been announced.
Twelve scholarships have been awarded to outstanding students studying on Hairdressing, Beauty, Make Up and Complementary Therapy’s courses.
One of the scholars, Natalie McCall who is studying on the Level 2 Beauty Therapy said, “I was absolutely delighted when I heard I had received a scholarship. Everyone is so supportive at Riverside College and the tutors are genuinely interested in encouraging and supporting you to do your best.”
Lyn Rhodes, Head of the Centre of Excellence in Hair and Beauty said, “This is the first year we have offered scholarships at the Centre of Excellence and there was an excellent standard of applicants. We are pleased to have been able to acknowledge so many of them with scholarships. These scholarships are designed to support students and provide financial assistance towards the costs of fulfilling their potential in their chosen field. For example, successful students have received financial support with kits and equipment and have also had the opportunity to attend prestigious industry standard workshops and gain additional qualifications to help them maximise their time at Riverside College.”
“At Riverside College we are able to offer our students outstanding results and exclusive links with top industry employers such as Steiner Cruise ships, Mac, Clarins, Lime Media and many more. We also have an extensive range of courses available to ensure students are able to expand their portfolio.”
