Nicola joined Exceed in 2003 as a trainee and went on to become employed as a stylist there.
In 2011 Nicola graduated from Huddersfield University with a Certificate in Education and is now the head trainee at Exceed.
Senior Lecturer at Bradford Training Academy.
"As well as my training commitments, which I take very seriously, I work a busy column in a Bradford Hairdressing salon. This allows me to keep in touch with what customers are asking for, how apprentices work with customers and the general running of a busy salon. It keeps me in touch with the real world of Hairdressing.
I love working for Exceed Training Academy, it gives me chance to build on my skills and pass those on to the apprentices"
Nicola is committed to keeping her knowledge of Hairdressing trends, techniques and styling as up-to-date and current as possible.
To this end she regularly attends courses, such as those provided by Trevor Sorbie. She has also taken courses in great lengths extensions, attends Hairdressing competitions in Blackpool and is currently on a photographic make-up course so she can help her students with their photo shoot unit.
Her goal is to allow students to learn and adopt real working skills that will be essential when they qualify.
Nicola specialises in hair up work and bridal styles.
Nicola's lesson planning follows health & safety, equality and diversity guidelines.
She continually researches current trends, equipment and techniques to demonstrate to Exceed's student, keeping them as up-to-date as possible.
She is a fully committed member of the Exceed Training Academy Team providing Hairdressing Apprenticeships in Bradford and the surrounding area.
