New project not to be snipped at

Celebrity hairdresser Lee Stafford is putting down roots in South Tyneside.

The former British Men’s Hairdresser of the Year will work with lecturers at South Tyneside College to hone their skills to enhance learning for hundreds of students each year.

Lee is already predicting great things for the ‘Lee Stafford Education Academy @ STC’, which aids lecturers who teach level 2 and level 3 students, and is recruiting now for students.

He said: “Each member of my team coaches in the same, very unique way, and we are all passionate about delivering what I believe is the ultimate hairdressing training package.

“It will enable South Tyneside College’s training teams to be the most inspired hairdressers around and ensure students can excel still more in their learning.”

The Education Academy will operate through his Lee Stafford Education brand – a tutoring and mentoring programme that has won national plaudits.

The college’s existing Top to Toe Salon is also expected to undergo a rebrand.
