Level 2, 1 Year, Sep 2010, Conway Park Setting up your own salon is the dream of many hairdressing students. Alex Aldoiu, 26, is not daunted by the task ahead - to set up a hairdressing business back home in Romania. Alex, 26, said: “This is my dream. I just love hairdressing and want to be able to pass on everything I have learned here at Wirral Met. Back home, salons are a bit old-fashioned - not at all like here where everything is very modern. What I want to do is give people advice about what would make them look good. I also want to introduce good customer care and new products into my salon.”

David Darcy Performing Arts David decided he wanted to become a professional dancer at the age of 14. Born in Merseyside, David and his family moved to the south of England when he was 4. He decided he wanted to return to the area and picked the course and Wirral Met College from the internet. “I was accepted on a course in the south, but the course did not specialise in dance. Wirral Metropolitan College had the specialist course and they helped me to find accommodation and supported my move and decision, which I absolutely love.”

Welders

Two bright sparks are celebrating their success in a major welding competition. Students Luke Harding and Phil Patton both gained places in the regional heats of the National SkillWeld competition. Luke, who works for Proweld Engineering in Birkenhead, and Phil, who works for JB Fabrications, Bromborough, are both studying on a day release basis at Wirral Met.

Jaroslav Ricka from the Czech Republic, fondly known to friends and tutors as Jerry, joined College in September 2007 as an English for Speakers of other Languages (ESOL) student in a part-time class. He progressed to full time Entry 3 and his language improved rapidly, enabling him to study on the BTEC Certificate Cabin Crew course which he completed in July 2009. The great news is that Jerry has been accepted to work on cruise liners and upon completion of his Level 1 ESOL course this summer will leave Wirral Met to take up his new post.

Megan left school and had a ‘gap year’ before joining Wirral Met College. Unsure whether to go down the chemistry or nursing route, Megan chose a course to develop her skills in applied science, finding out more about all of the career choices that science can lead to. With good GCSE grades Megan was accepted straight onto a level 3 course and is doing very well with her studies. Megan says, “there is always something new to learn at Wirral Met and with the help of my tutors I have really improved my understanding of science and the careers it leads to.”

Mark Thain Lifeguard After being rescued from the water in a swimming pool incident, 17-year-old Mark Thain trained to pass his Lifeguard exam - and is now helping adults with their challenges in learning to swim. Mark’s story of determination began two-anda-half years ago when he had an asthma attack in the middle of the pool. Mark, a music student at Carlett Park, said: “The next thing I knew I was on the side of the pool taking my asthma pump. Mark explained: “I really wanted to prove to everyone that I could achieve the Lifeguard certification.” Mark now works with an adult group of non-swimmers at Leasowe, and calls upon his own experiences to inspire them to achieve.
