The Association of Hairdressers and Therapists was founded in 1963 by a group of hairdressing teachers as a national network of like-minded specialists who exchanged good practice and support. Members of the AHT include teachers, trainers or assessors of hairdressing or therapy subjects, who are either working towards or currently hold teaching/assessing qualifications.
Commenting on the success of the students, Lorraine Drayton, Curriculum Manager for Hairdressing and Beauty at NSCG, said: “By competing in high profile regional competitions such as these, our students gain valuable experience that they can use to help them progress in the workplace. The students did themselves and the College proud and I’m delighted with the latest collection of awards, which recognise their talent and hard work. We wish them all well as they compete on the national stage at the finals in May.”
