Students and staff at the Lee Stafford Hair Academy at Bournemouth & Poole College are celebrating after one of our tutors recently achieved ‘Master Trainer’ status, the highest accolade possible after months of intense training.

Rachel Allen, a Hair Instructor at the Academy, is part of the hair team who, for the past 18 months has been undergoing the intense training as set out by Lee Stafford. The training included perfecting 22 of the ‘Michelin starred’ recipes and she has become the first of the College’s tutors to achieve this coveted status.

Bournemouth & Poole College is the only Lee Stafford Hair Academy in the South West, offering students the opportunity to learn specially designed exclusive ‘recipes’ and the very best training in hair cutting, styling and colouring techniques.

Lee Stafford 'Master Trainer', Rachel AllenRachel said: “I’m delighted to become a Master Trainer. It is a great achievement to be recognised by Lee Stafford Education for my skills in hairdressing and my ability to train our apprentices to the highest possible standard.

With so many recipes at her disposal, Rachel cannot wait to pass on her knowledge to our students: “I really enjoy teaching the Level 2 long graduation. The students really respond positively to this particular recipe and can use it fairly quickly in their assessments and training. I am now looking forward to sharing the Level 3 Asymmetric cut; it’s something they will not have seen before and challenges their skills.”

Commenting on Rachel’s achievement, Lee Stafford remarked: “It takes outstanding skill and commitment to master all 22 of these challenging recipes. Becoming a Master Trainer means Rachel is now up there with the very best of the Lee Stafford team as one of the most skilled trainers in the country.”

Rachel also praised the impact of the Lee Stafford partnership with the College: “I really feel we have raised the standard of hairdressing tuition in the College, and all of the team are working with the same delivery method which has elevated our students at becoming the best hairdressers that they can be.”
