Salisbury Composite High School has partnered with MC College to help cosmetology students applying for post-secondary education.
MC College is a hairstyling, esthetics and fashion design school based out of Edmonton and this partnership will make it easier for Sal Comp students to gain an impressive list of industry level skills and experiences before they graduate high school. Students will gain access to post-secondary level classes over the course of the year, up to date text books, product packages allowing them to work with the latest supplies and two $1000 scholarships for the top performing students to attend MC College after they graduate.
As a bonus, this partnership includes professional learning sessions for teachers as well.
“I’m really thankful to my instructors and MC for giving me the opportunity to get head start on my post-secondary credentials while I’m still in high school,” said Jolene Audet, a Grade 12 cosmetology student. “It’s a huge deal for me. It’ll mean more opportunities and a broader resume when I’m ready to begin my career.”
Sal Comp cosmetology teacher, Zenz Duguid said that “the working world is incredibly competitive and for those who already have their eye on a rewarding career in hairstyling, partnerships like this, give them an invaluable advantage. We want students to see what opportunities are out there and learn from those who are already active in the industry.”
MC College sees the partnership as an investment. “The beauty industry provides many exciting and rewarding career opportunities. We are committed to supporting student who display an interest in our field. They are the future of the salon and spa industry,” noted Cheryl Harrison, MC College’s VP of operations.
