Shannon Johnston is the owner of Shair by Shannon in
Auchinleck and a new employer. She
approached East Ayrshire Works enquiring about Wage Subsidy funding to support
a new Trainee seeking to utilise her qualifications in Hairdressing. Over the past 6 months, Trainee Morgan Benn
has been building up her portfolio and is popular with her new clients.
Due to new trends and an increase in request for services,
both Shannon and Morgan wanted to offer existing and new customers new and
bespoke services in the area. Therefore
both Trainee and Employer accessed funding to gain the “HTS Certified Hair
Extensions Specialist CPD Certification” via the 7 Method Hair Extension Course
at Red Hair Salon in Kilmarnock with Marie Kay @HTSRed and Laurie Hume
“East Ayrshire Works has been absolutely brilliant!! They have funded 100% of my
training which is absolutely amazing as it has helped me in so many ways. With this I will be able to progress in
building up my clientele. They have been
so helpful and the process of it all has been very quick. Couldn’t recommend them more”.
Shannon says: "I can’t recommend East Ayrshire Works enough!
Sheila was absolutely brilliant and funded 70% of my training and 100% of my
employee Morgan’s training. It is such a
great help for my business and a very quick process. They could not have been
any more helpful. If you’re looking for
funding for courses for yourself or employee’s go to East Ayrshire Works. Brilliant!”
