Cymoedd learners ‘Nail’ it at Community event
A group of Beauty learners from Coleg y Cymoedd received a vote of thanks from staff at Caerphilly Council for their involvement at one of their recent events.
Local residents received invitations to the event, organised by Caerphilly Council’s Community Regeneration Team to identify what they would like to see in their area; and as a ‘thank you’ for attending they were offered a range of pamper treatments provided by the Cymoedd learners.
The Beauty learners, studying on the Level 2 Beauty Therapy course at Ystrad Mynach campus spent the morning at the Van Community Centre, Caerphilly providing treatments for the residents.
Hayley Hunt, Campus Co-ordinator for Hairdressing and Beauty at Ystrad Campus, said “When the college received the invitation we accepted immediately as events such as this provide our learners with the opportunity to work with clients and put the techniques they have learnt on their course into practice. The hands-on experience also includes Customer Service and Health & Safety. The learners were kept busy throughout the morning providing nail treatments with a relaxing hand and arm massage”.
Rhian Meaden, Event Organiser at Caerphilly Council said “We are very grateful to Hayley and her team for supporting our event. The event proved an ideal opportunity for us to consult with local residents and I’m sure the offer of free pampering treatments resulted in an excellent response. I hope the learners found it beneficial and I hope we can call on them for their support at future events”.
