Building Self-Confidence Through Multiple Apprenticeships

We caught up with Hannah Wilkinson from Pamper Salon, Llandovery. She has been committed to progressing her beauty career with two qualifications and isn’t ready to stop there.

 

Studying multiple qualifications

I started with Level 2 Beauty Therapy in 2019. I then moved onto Level 3 Beauty Therapy – Massage. I am now planning on starting my Level 3 in Nail Services in the summer.

 

I get to learn whilst doing what I love

I have always had a passion for all things beauty, more specifically nails. Although I’d gone into sixth form with the intention of going to university, I realised that the apprenticeship route could help me pursue what I really wanted to do. A friend was actually training with ISA while I was in sixth form and that encouraged me to seek more information into apprenticeships, I loved the aspect of being able to learn whilst doing what you love.

 

I want to continuously enhance my skills

I’m not sure what the future holds after I complete my training as I’ve still got a little bit to go, but I love where I work so intend to stay there until I feel confident enough to build my own career. I would have stopped at Level 3 but as nails is something I’d like to specialise in I want to continuously enhance my skills and Level 3 nail services can provide that for me.

 

Studying has given me self-confidence

I’ve enjoyed the whole experience of working with ISA. Most of all I love the confidence that it’s given me socially, as well as self-confidence in what I can do. It’s challenged me and I’m definitely all the better for it.
