Students of Aspire have the opportunity to purchase hair products for the salon. Using their English, maths and ICT skills, students get to independently price up hair and beauty products looking at the offers and working out the best price to ensure the hair salon runs cost-effectively. Presenting a positive impression to the public is all part of the Unit 1 assessment and the girls are excelling.

Back in the academy the students do a full stock take and write a brief diary of their visit to the wholesalers.

Again students of Aspire have made excellent relations with our wholesaler and are now confidently able to purchase hair products and have a clear understanding on the importance of cost awareness in running a successful business.
