Every Learner is Different | Katie’s Story
In Katie’s free time, she loves to go to the gym, see her friends, and she’s partial to a skiing holiday!
Life before Brooks and Kirk
Katie began an apprenticeship aged 16 at a local Toni & Guy hair salon. She worked there for 6.5 years, and in that time progressed from Apprentice, to Stylist, to Senior Stylist and Assistant Manager. Whilst at the salon, Katie was training the in-salon apprentices and this was where she found her love for education.
Finding Brooks and Kirk
Wanting to qualify to teach and assess in hairdressing and with the hopes of finding a role as Hairdressing Tutor, Katie began her online search for the Level 3 CAVA and Level 3 AET courses.
Katie found Brooks and Kirk – she said she chose us because we have so much information here on our website. She knew we would be well organised, and that she’s be supported throughout her qualification.
“The knowledge and skills from the course has been useful, it’s given me an idea of what’s involved within teaching and assessing, preparing me for further training I’m receiving in my new job role. It was particularly useful because as part of my interview I had to do a 15 min microteach, thanks to the course I knew exactly how and what to do for it.”
Review left on Trustpilot
I came to Brooks and Kirk to gain my Cava qualifications. Everything went so smoothly and so simply, knowing there were friendly people to help me by email or phone whenever I needed it. Couldn’t recommend them more- will go to them again in future for more courses!
Life after the Assessor Course
Since completing her courses, Katie has started a new job as a Hairdressing Tutor for Learning Curve Group based in London. It’s exactly what she wants to do, and Katie says she wouldn’t have been able to do it without her qualifications she received with the help of us at Brooks and Kirk.
“The course couldn’t have gone more smoothly for me, and what I was learning was completely new to me but I was supported all the way. If any of the courses interest you and will help with your future- go for it!”
