Beauty students showcase their skills at Leicestershire spa
Friday 24 February, 2017
Beauty students at Solihull College & University Centre had the chance to impress recently whilst completing a work experience placement at Ragdale Hall in Leicestershire.
Over the last few years, the college has built a successful partnership with the spa and within the last year was awarded with Ragdale Hall's ‘College of Excellence' status.The spa visits the college's campuses in Solihull and Smith's Wood at the beginning of each academic year, talking to the students about working for them and the experience they could gain whilst doing so, allowing students to then register their interest.
Those who wish to complete work experience at the company are asked to take part in a trade test. Students Morgan Purcell-Farquharson and Megan Harold were the talented two who impressed this year and managed to secure the work experience opportunity. The students completed a week's placement at Ragdale Hall and thoroughly enjoyed the experience with Morgan commenting: “It showed us what it's like in a real life spa and gave us a good insight into the industry.”
Many students at the college have been fortunate enough to complete work experience at Ragdale Hall, with several impressing so much that they have received full-time job offers upon completion of their work experience. Both Megan and Morgan also impressed throughout their week's placement and were also encouraged to apply for jobs at the spa.
