Hairdressing Student Jordan Rush

Jordan Rush

I have a lot of respect for the staff who teach me as they are all from the hairdressing industry and are very experienced, so you feel you are getting the most up-to-date teaching. They are particularly good at helping to build your confidence — whether it’s with your cutting and colouring skills or even learning how to strike up a conversation with a client — they share their experience and you really benefit from this.”

Jordan Rush, former pupil of Chilton Trinity Technology College in Bridgwater, is hoping to progress on to the Level 3 Apprenticeship in Hairdressing next year.
