I asked some of the students I had on level one last year to tell this years students how they felt last year at this time and what level two is like.
Here is what they said.
Q. How did you feel about moving on to level two?
'Last year at this time we felt really nervous and panicky about the group changing and who we were going to have as our tutor. We thought the students in the other group were stuck up ( they aren't)
Q. What did you feel like when you started in September?
We felt a bit on edge. It soon calmed down when we got put into groups and team building sessions helped us settle in.
Q. What's level two like?
Doing your first clients is scary but it's okay as long as you remember everything you were taught in level one. It comes back to you.
It's not as hard as you might expect, you do get to feel more comfortable with the clients and there are no assignments! But make sure you revise for the exams as they are hard.
It goes quickly because your busy doing clients.
We all get along well, we feel more mature now and are starting to feel like real hairdressers!
We had so much fun making our own video about
First we researched about the importance of skin testing, how we do one and what could happen if you don't do one.
We even made up a little song!
Let us know what you think.

With the competition over and our practical assessments complete, it's time to recap on our cutting skills again. We surprised ourselves with how much we had remembered. Each of us choosing which cut we wanted to try again.

Since some of us have finished our practical assessments. Lisa asked us if we wanted to see what happened in a level two class. We felt a bit nervous but some of Lisa's level one's from last year were there and she asked them to look after us.
The tutor Jennie was lovely, she was doing a colouring demonstration and although we didn't ask any questions ourselves, we listened to the questions being asked and liked the final result.

We cant actually believe how these weeks at college are flying by.
Most of us have completed our assignments and just have a few final assessments to do. And the competition of course!
The things we have learnt are becoming more than our hairdressing knowledge we are becoming different people. Little did we realise when we started this programme that we would grow so much in ourselves.
Some of us have never completed anything in our lives until now.
So a different question was asked this week.
What have we learnt about ourselves?
To hold our temper,
Not swear in places we shouldn't
Take responsiblity for our actions.
Have 'better' timekeeping.
Realise honesty IS the best policy.
We are responsible for our own equipment.
How to act professonally
To work as a team
We are doing this to get a job.
To mind our own business
To get along with people even if you dont really like them.
Sharing is caring haha
That we can complete something.
We are going to miss Lisa. A lot!
That I will have a City and Guilds
How to BLOG!!
We dont always like our photos taken! Especially if it shows our chins.
How to meet deadlines.
College can be fun. So can Health and Safety.
We can create things we never thought we could.

The groups are far to busy to blog themselves, so left it up to me.
I can't believe how hard they are all working and how competitive they are getting.
Things are starting to come together but with only one more day in the salon to practise, it's going to be down to them to practise at home.
See below how things are coming together. I'm so excited for them all and think they all deserve to win.
Beware Batman! The jokers about in Gotham City. Amazing Emily
It's the circle of life. Well done Demi
Great patience from Wilson. That Avatar looks fab!
Lots of 'waves' from Mamoona. What could this be?
