STUDENT hairdressers at Barnsley College proved they are a cut above the rest when their department won a top award.
The college’s hair and beauty department has been recognised as a Centre of Expertise for both hairdressing and beauty therapy apprenticeships.
Following an inspection, the Government-recognised Hair and Beauty Industry Association awarded the college the accolade.
The department is one of the first hair and beauty training providers in the country to be granted the status, which recognises training providers which deliver the highest level of learning.
The association verdict was: “Fantastic premises and resources, the assessors were highly delighted by what they had seen on the day.”
