Hair and Beauty Academy launches

I was delighted to attend the official opening of the Young Enterprise Scotland’s (YES) Hair and Beauty Academy in Barrhead where I met some of the new recruits hoping to follow in the footsteps of our very own world renowned crimper Trevor Sorbie who comes from Paisley. Nine new jobs have already been created since opening the academy at Rouken Glen and it is hoped their success will be re-created at their brand new branch in Barrhead. The Hair and Beauty Academy provides a live training environment which combines salon based training and real work experience. Recruits also have the opportunity to gain their SQA Accredited Qualifications and those I spoke to were enthusiastic and excited about the future and what they can achieve.
