Erasmus+ trip to Girona

Hair and Beauty students from NPTC Group of Colleges got a taste of what it's like to live and work abroad during an Erasmus+ trip to Girona.

Fifteen beauty and applied therapists, hairdressers and barbers got the chance of a lifetime to work alongside their Spanish counterparts in salons and spas across Catalonia, and within a day of arrival were working on paying clients.

Erasmus+ is a European Union programme offering exciting opportunities for students to study, work and train abroad.

When the student got a day off they enjoyed the sights and sounds of Barcelona visiting Gaudi’s Cathedral and fully enjoyed experiencing life in the cosmopolitan city. 

Juliana Thomas, Deputy Head for Afan College’s School of Hairdressing and Applied Therapies, said this was the second year the College had organised the trip and that both staff and students had gained so much from this ongoing partnership with Institute Girona.

”The trip not only allowed students the opportunity to gain additional specialised skills but gain confidence and embrace a different culture and language.”
