Our first unit (Fundamental Studies) introduced us to the world of hair and make-up and culminated in an assessment based on a character from one of Jane Austen’s novels.  There was a lot of hard work involved, but I really enjoyed this unit – it was a bit of a shock to the system having been out of school for 6 years! We learnt a lot in this first unit and I was lucky enough to pick a character where I could use a range of these skills.
