Congratulations to Georgina Millington who has been awarded the VQ Learner of the Year Award for the London Region. Taking place as part of the 2013 VQ Day celebrations, these awards recognise outstanding skill, achievement and commitment of vocational learners across the country.

Georgina studied hairdressing at Carshalton College completing her VRQ Level 2 and 3 qualifications at the same time as entering competitions and lots of external courses to gain as much experience as possible. Whilst completing the Level 3 Georgina opened her own salon. The salon did so well she decided to support the industry and share her skills and take on Apprentices. Georgina dedicates a lot of her time to their training at work and has seen them through the completion of their Level 2 & Level 3.

Georgina started at Carshalton College when she left school. She was always a very dedicated student and worked hard to complete her Level 2 in Hairdressing early. She started Level 3 in 2010 and was entered by Carshalton College into the National Hairdressing Competition with the rest of the Level 3 group and won her category.

Some of the Apprentices Georgina works with have had personal difficulties to overcome of which she has been hugely supportive, enabling them to complete both qualifications and now work for her as stylists.

Georgina has recently opened a second salon which is also doing very well. She has put one of her members of staff in her salon as manager; this person also trained at Carshalton College and was supported and trained by Georgina.

Janice Child, Curriculum Manager for Hairdressing describes Georgina

"She is an inspiration to all students and employers, for her dedication to the industry and the Apprenticeship system. Training new Apprentices, she supports them through any difficulties enabling them to have the confidence and self-worth to achieve their dream. Georgina is a credit to us all."

Carshalton College has a great reputation for their Hairdressing courses and Apprenticeships. The hairdressing courses have been running for over 50 years since the College opened, making it one of the few original vocational courses on offer. There is a front of house Renaissance salon that is open to the public, which is a realistic working environment and a training salon where learning takes place in a creative atmosphere. The staffs are all dedicated practitioners who continue to work in industry alongside their teaching role, keeping updated of new trends, innovative ideas and practices.
