Nails services student Becki has achieved her dream of opening a nails supplies shop.
Having previously studied Aviation at Stockton Riverside College, when it came to making a return to her studies, the college was the obvious choice.
She said: “When I was 16 and studying at Stockton Riverside College, the quality of teaching was amazing so I didn’t hesitate to come back as a mature student.”
And it has proven the right choice.
When asked how she found the Nails Services course, Becki said: “The best bit is how practical it is. The tutor, Sarah, is amazing too. She is such a good teacher and has so much knowledge to share and she always makes sure that everybody understands, she’s very supportive.”
Becki’s goal for the future was to open a retail store supplying equipment to the nail industry all over the UK, and last month, she achieved that dream, opening Atkinson Brown in Middlesbrough.
Atkinson Brown has been an overnight success with customers ordering from as far afield as Gibraltar and The United States.
So, would she recommend Stockton Riverside College to others? “Yes I would, if this is the industry you want to be in then I would recommend this course and college to everyone, It is so in depth. The course is an academic year long which shows how much there is to know. The course teaches you all nail systems and ensures you come out with a qualification that is recognised by insurers”.
