We don’t just give students an education and experience that sets them up for success in a career – we help them succeed in their career and discover a field that they are passionate about and dare to lead it.

E.L.M has helped me in achieving my goal of becoming a hairdresser. I’m a few weeks away from qualifying and I’m actually sad to go. All of the students have become a group of friends, we all support each other.

I started my Apprenticeship with E.L.M a few months ago after being on a Haidressing course in a college. I’ve found that E.L.M has offered me so much more in terms of skills and knowledge and even support.
