A.L.D. Hair & Beauty Training Academy


A.L.D Academy for Hair & Beauty is a great organisation.  I myself done my level 2 in Hairdressing and loved it.  You don’t just get a qualification from it but you gain friends and a great family.  They are a great team here down at Gateshead and I have decided to come back to do my Beauty level 1 & 2 and it is a great place to train.  The staff are great and make you feel so welcome on the courses and you feel at ease whilst you are here.  I would advise anyone to come and join the team.

After completing my level 1 hairdressing course I decided I really enjoyed it and would go onto level 2.  My tutor Helen has been very supportive and understanding towards me as I was pregnant throughout my level 1 training and have recently had my baby.  I’m really enjoying my level 2 training the staff are lovely at ALD and the ladies on my course are too.

I first heard about the courses from a leaflet drop with Gateshead Council.  I have really loved all of it.  My favourite part from the hairdressing was learning colouring techniques.  In beauty I have enjoyed manicures & facials equally.  I wish I had done this years ago but didn’t have the courage.  I’m looking forward to starting level 2 Beauty Therapy and the staff have been really nice.

ALD is a great learning experience.  Very friendly and helpful staff & other student learners from all backgrounds, single mums, working mums etc.  It’s like being part of an extended family and you meet so many new friends and gain experience at the same time, it’s perfect!  Would never regret coming here.  It’s been a milestone in my life to better myself and my income in the future.  Great place, lovely staff 
