A beauty therapist in Spalding is hoping her experience at Boston College will help promote the courses available.

The college is hosting an open evening at the campus in Red Lion Quarter, Spalding, on Thursday between 5pm and 7pm when prospective students are invited to go along and see what is on offer.

Steph Rowett said: “As a mobile hairdresser I wanted to be able to offer beauty services to my clients, but I was worried about the cost.

“Thanks to the payment scheme that the college offer, I’ve been able to pay in monthly instalments.

“The college campus in Spalding means that I can fit my course around my job and my children.”

The open event, which runs from 5pm to 7pm, is the ideal opportunity for students unsure of what to do after their GCSEs.

Every area of the college - which offers 250 academic and vocational courses - will be represented by teaching staff, who will be available to talk to visitors. The college’s learner services team will be there to offer advice on transport or funding. Employers are also welcome to discuss health and safety, apprenticeships or NVQ qualifications.
