“The hairdressing course is very enjoyable at the CTC. I completed my hairdressing modules, Maths, Word Processing and Work Experience. I also got my Gaisce Bronze award.

It is a great place to join if you didn’t enjoy school where you can just be yourself and I would recommend it to anyone. I hope to start my linked work experience in a few weeks”.
