Beauty Therapist student (Current Employee) – Walsall, West Midlands – 15 January 2018
I currently work in the college salon on Saturdays, a typical day includes, checking what clients i have booked in for treatments that day and carrying out those treatments. When i work on a Saturday i often learn how to do different treatments and i get to practice skills I've learned on other people in the salon.
I currently report to the beauty therapist manager.
I work in a professional environment where good customer service is extremely important and treatments are expected to be carried out at a high standard. I have already built up a small client base of returning customers.
The hardest part of the job is remembering all the steps to each treatment, there can be up to 20 steps.
The most enjoyabe part of the job is seeing a customer happy with their treatment and learning new skills.

Distance Learning Tutor (Current Employee) – Walsall, West Midlands – 6 February 2017
I work as a distance learning tutor assessing Understanding Nutrition and Health coursework. There seems to be a slowdown in NH work which is no fault of the college so I am in the process of completing a level 2 qualification in dementia care which will allow me to assess learners enrolled on this course and also further my personal development.
Beauty Therapist (Current Employee) – Walsall – 25 October 2016
I have learnt such a lot since starting at Walsall college just over a year ago. The hardest part of the course would be the theory lessons, there is always so much to take in, so it always so important to go home and revise. It's been so easy to get along with other people that are on my course, we all help each other if we are unsure on something. The tutors are also great.

Sports Development Officer (Current Employee) – Walsall – 22 March 2016
Walsall College is a great place to be and I have learned a lot of new skills there, that will benefit me in the future of work. Walsall College is a great environment, that all my colleagues like to be at and are very happy they are.
I enjoy always having something to do, always kept busy. After every job you are greeted with a new one too try. you are always offered new treatments that you can possible try if you feel up too it. You have a list of clients for the day so you are fully prepared. I develop on so many characteristics involving patient, communication, independent and team working etc. the hardest part of the salon would be when its busy and there are not many other people are in so you have too many clients to share between the students.
