Our Teacher of the Week this week is Andrea Rimmer, Course Leader and Salon Manager of Beauty, who recently received the prestigious Inspirational Educator of the Year Award after leading her nail service students to national and regional award success.
Andrea has supported and guided her students to win a series of awards over the past 12 months including Gold medal in the Intermediate Nail Enhancement at the WorldSkills UK National Competitions.
What do you enjoy most about teaching at West Cheshire College?
It is fantastic to see my students develop and gain amazing jobs in the beauty industry. Over the past 12 months many of my students have also gone onto win numerous awards and I am very proud of all of their achievements. Nurturing them and seeing them strive really is an amazing reward for me.
Why would you recommend the course?
I would recommend the course to students who have a passion for Beauty, we train right from beginners to advanced levels. With a professional beauty salon on site, students are able to gain first-hand experience of what it is like to work in a salon environment.
We are also one of the best colleges in the UK for Beauty after we won the College Cup at Professional Beauty North and Professional Beauty London. We were the highest placing College across all categories in both competitions, beating off other colleges from across the country.
We are also the first College in England to become education ambassadors for luxury nail products, Creative Nail Design (CND), which is a fantastic achievement. We only train our students to be the best of the very best.
What are the future prospects for a beauty student?
Students go on to work for a range of companies including prestigious beauty salons within hotels and health clubs; many also decide to set up their own salons or use their skills working on cruise ships or abroad. This course really does give all our beauty students the skills they need for a successful career in the industry.
