Apprentice Lauren Work’s in Cyprus

Apprentice Lauren Work’s in Cyprus

One of our talented Apprentices has swapped our salon in Ystrad Mynach to experience working in Cyprus for two weeks this summer.

Lauren Rees has been selected for an exciting two-week work experience placement in Paphos, from May 31.

The visit has been arranged by Bridgend-based ISA Training, thelargest independent hair and beauty training provider in Wales, in partnership with Discovery Training in Cyprus.

Lauren will join a group of 10 apprentices and two staff on the trip to Paphos, where she will spend two weeks working in a salon. As the owner and customers speak Greek, Lauren is now learning the language to help her settle in quickly.

The project aims to enhance the learning experience of apprentices, increase their confidence and broaden their career horizons. Lauren has taken Greek lessons to help her fit in quickly with the salons where she will be working.

Lauren, who began her apprenticeship in 2012, said: “I always like to learn and try new things, to travel and visit new countries and thought this would be an excellent experience and opportunity. I am looking forward to experiencing the salons in Cyprus and seeing exactly how they work and what techniques they use.”
