Wanting more – and going for it
Laura Withington jumped at the chance to become a hairdressing apprentice after not feeling fulfilled in her previous job.
“Before starting my apprenticeship, I worked as a Clerk in a Solicitor’s office. But I wasn’t happy with where I was in my life work-wise and I didn’t have the drive for it.
I wanted more, but I was also worried to start an apprenticeship at 29 years of age with two young children depending on me.
However, I just went for it and applied to become a level 2 hairdressing apprentice at Evolve in Lancashire. I was successful!
