Name: Summer Bale-Goldsworthy

Hometown: Penryn

Previous school: Penryn College

Courses studied at College: Level 2 Hair Professional Apprenticeship

Apprenticeship: Salon Vanilla

Summer, our Level 2 Hair Professional Apprentice, has not only been nominated for the VTCT National Excellence Awards but also been shortlisted down from 519 nominees to the final 5 for the Apprentice of the Year category.

Summer has made a massive contribution to the team at Salon Vanilla. Described by her employer as having ‘exceptional’ skills, she is now able to offer consultations with confidence, make decisions on her own and carry out services impeccably.

From the moment Summer left school, she knew an Apprenticeship was for her. She commented: “I chose to come to Truro College because of the location and opportunity. I knew an Apprenticeship was the right option when I left school. And I am so glad I did it at Truro College. All my friends, lecturers and employer have been so supportive.

“Being nominated for something like VTCT is incredible. I have recently just passed my Maths GCSE, so next academic year I will move on to my Level 3 Apprenticeship. I now feel like nothing is holding me back from pursuing my dream career.”
