I particularly enjoyed group work and classroom activities. They gave us a great opportunity to share our views and opinions on a particular subject. As an international student, I always felt very welcome at Bournville College. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my course. Teachers were always helpful and didn’t hesitate to lend a helping hand when needed. I am confident that I’m now fully equipped with business knowledge which will enable me to progress my studies to a university level

Diploma in Teaching in Lifelong Learning Sector (DTLLS) Now a Full Time Lecturer in Hairdressing at Bournville College

Highlight

Progressing from a hairdressing course onto a teaching qualification which has led to a job opportunity of becoming a Trainee Assessor in Hairdressing at Bournville College. If you’re enthusiastic about your goal, Bournville has all the right support packages to guide you in the right direction. After finishing my hairdressing qualifications, I was encouraged to consider a new career path of teaching which I was able to develop on the DTLLS course. My teaching career is now taking off and I can finally see myself doing the job I love
