ALD Hairdressing supports learners into work

Jan 8, 2015

Maelene Narsi was out of work, a single mother and desperate to get a break.

Her life changed when she enrolled on a course with one of our partners, ALD Hair and Beauty.





Here is Maelene’s story in her own words:

Maelene_Narsi_Progression_photoI got a job thanks to all the studying I have done and the support of ALD.

I owe it all to the amazing tutor Gillian and all the staff!

Before I started training with ALD I had no qualifications at all; I was a single mother with nothing behind me.

I had tried to find work but no one wanted to employ someone without any skills.

By chance, I received a leaflet in the post advertising the courses at ALD. After I overcame my nerves, I picked up the phone and called them. I came in and spoke to Julia who told me all about the course. I knew straight away that it was the course for me! I met the amazing staff who helped me with all the paper work, funding for the course and with the practical and written parts of the course.

Throughout the course the tutor Gillian always took her time to explain everything and if I was stuck she was there to make sure I understood it all. I learned so much! I started at ALD with nothing but left with my NVQ Level 1 and 2 in Beauty Therapy. In addition I did courses in Hot Stone Therapy and acrylic nails. I worked hard and to top it all off I won an amazing ‘student of the year’ prize!

“I won an amazing ‘student of the year’ prize.”

ALD gave me an opportunity to better my life and because of them I have now got employed at Hollywood Nails and I am loving my work. Who would of thought a leaflet through the post would have led to me meeting such lovely people, learning new skills and getting my dream job. I will always be grateful to Tracey, Gillian and Julia. ALD have been more than just a training company; they have been a blessing in my life! I have grown in confidence because they have shown me no matter what happens  in life I can become whoever I want to be all it takes is studying and a tutor who makes you never give up. I left proud to say I started with nothing but left more proud at what I have achieved since.
