About you and background
My name is Paige Haskins and I am 17 years old. I live in Taffs Well but I am originally from Cardiff.
What course did you study at Coleg y Cymoedd?
I have been at Coleg y Cymoedd for 2 years. In my first year I studied health and social care but realised it wasn’t for me I am now studying level 2 beauty therapy and I am enjoying it a lot more.
What made you decide to study at Coleg y Cymoedd?
Coleg y Cymoedd is a 10 minute walk from my house so it is easy access and it also had the specific courses that I was looking for.
Why did you choose to study this course?
I choose to study this course as I enjoy more practical work rather than written work so it was perfect for me. I also like to do practical assessments such as makeup etc.
What are the benefits of studying at Coleg y Cymoedd?
It is a lovely college and there are many nice new people to meet. The college gives you so many opportunities and the tutors are lovely.
What do you intend to do next?
I hope that after this year in college I will be able to progress onto level three in Beauty Therapy and then on to the level 4 course in Salon Management.
How is the course helping you achieve your ambitions?
This course will give me the qualifications that I need to be able to do the job that I hope for in the hair and beauty industry when I am older.
