Students hear from a skincare businesswoman
Teach success in your classrooms, entrepreneur tells collegesBeauty therapy courses can help students start their own business as well as learn the craft, according to a top businesswoman. Entrepreneur, Maleka Dattu, said that further education courses could include skills relevant to running a business on top of the specialist knowledge needed for disciplines such like beauty therapy. Maleka made her comments on when she visited Newham College London to talk about her journey in the beauty industry and her growing brand of skincare products. She spoke to around 120 students learning about beauty, hair, business and other disciplines during her visit to East Ham Campus on 4 June. She found out how the College makes courses relevant to the commercial sector and heard about its own high street hairdressing salon. She said: “I applaud the approach this college takes in combining vocational training with commercial reality. It is brilliant that the college has a working salon on campus and on the high street to promote work based education”. Maleka Dattu, founder of Merumaya Integrative Effective Skincare®, built a profile in the industry as part of the team that grew Clinique to the number one position in the UK. In 2006, she was voted by her peers as Cosmetic Executive Women’s Achiever of the Year. Maleka started off her experience in the beauty industry by taking a course in beauty therapy, hairdressing and electrolysis for three years at a west London college. In her wide ranging talk, she spoke about many factors that are important to succeed in the industry. She said: “Passion for the beauty industry has to be coupled with drive, discipline, customer service, customer loyalty, branding and sales”. Maleka also told students that she benefited from other types of experience in leading companies, such as spending half a day in the warehouse or on employment issues and debt control. Seeing how other functions work in the industry helped her in her own business, she said. She encouraged students to learn about other sectors that complimented their own. Merumaya Integrative Effective Skincare® launched in October 2012. In January 2013, John Lewis selected the brand for some of their stores and Maleka is now working on spreading them in to the global market. Campus deputy director Steve Smith said: “We want enterprise to feature in as many of our courses as possible. We also want to give our students the opportunity to be inspired by meeting and listening to speakers like Maleka who have achieved success in the world of work.”

Newham College calls on hairdressers to become registered
Newham College is backing a campaign by hairdressing industry experts to boost professionalism in the sector in east London. The College’s hair and beauty lecturers are supporting the Hairdressing Council’s bid to encourage stylists to become state registered and develop their skills. The Council wants the College to help raise standards and professionalism through registration so that all working hairdressers and barbers are qualified. The College’s internal registration campaign began recently when the Council’s Sally Styles and Jo Orr attended the College’s East London Hair and Beauty Expo held at its East Ham Campus. The College’s hairdressing commercial training manager, Sage Khan, said: “We want to work with the Hairdressing Council and become a model for how standards can be raised locally. “We’re keen to demonstrate that we are serious about the profession and we can do that by registering our lecturers and students. We’ll encourage our students to talk to their employers and convince them of the benefits of registration.” Professionalising hairdressing: Newham College's Sage Khan with Patrick Phipps,salon owner and lecturer at the Expo Chief executive officer of the Hairdressing Council, Sally Styles is now writing to MPs in east London to win their backing. She said: “Hairdressing is not taken as seriously as a profession as it should be and one major reason is because it is completely unregulated. Although, dangerous chemicals are used, anyone can open a salon without a day of training. “We need to let the industry know that the Hairdressing Council will be raising standards. Training is vital so we are pleased to be working with a college like Newham that supports registration.” The Council says stylists should register to gain legal recognition and can later train to become ‘master craftsmen’ in hairdressing. The College is giving their staff and students this opportunity by inviting the Council to speak to them. Lecturers also plan to enter their advanced students in the Council’s UK Student of the Year competition. Newham College’s students already style east Londoners’ hair at their commercial-run training centre, The Salon in East Ham’s High Street North. According to the Council, £5 billion a year is spent on hairdressing, 245,000 people are employed – that’s 1% of the total UK workforce and 40 million people are customers. Hairdressers can range from stylists who work in national chain of salons to freelancers who work from home.   More informationSome of Newham College’s hairdressing courses and courses for beauty consultants.

Students’ creations produce a night of Eastern promise
Over 400 students put on an amazing display of their talent on 13 June during a three-hour evening, gala performance at Newham College.   Students' designs take to the stage in a 7-minute plus video of the East Show Imaginative designs in fashion, hair, dance, and song were on show for around 300 family, friends and staff. The displays were part of ‘East’, this year’s name for the annual show put on by students and staff at the East Ham Campus, High Street South. College executive director, Geoff Crook said: “Our students produced a spectacular show that was challenging and fun and that entertained the audience. This show demonstrated the wealth of talented and skills that we have at the College. “Choosing East as a theme meant our students could use their skills in a flexible way and stretched their ability. “Students and staff did some of the work for this show in their free time, so it’s a testament to their personal commitment.” The show’s fantastic designs included hairstyles that reflected landmarks in east London and the East, such as the Taj Mahal, and animals, Asian bridal wear, Bollywood fashion, and versions of Western clothes. Five students created a golden dragon for the Chinese New Year. The students who contributed came from courses in fashion and tailoring, beauty, make-up, nails, hairdressing, catering and hospitality, performance arts and under-16 programmes. They had the help of friends and family who modelled clothes and other designs. They took on the challenge of the designs but also enjoyed being a super model for an evening. Beauty therapy student, Jasmin Brown 18, modelled Bollywood clothes with classmate, Raeqwan Barnwell, 17, Romford. Jasmin had done a few practise walks before she modelled her clothes. On the night she said: “It was scary at first but I got used to it. It felt it was good.” Hooray for Bollywood: Newham College students Raeqwanand Jasmin become supermodels for the East show Former Newham College student Linda Hamilton, East Ham, dressed up as a Bollywood dancer and did the make up for beauty therapy student Didi Tambana, 32, Forest Gate. Linda said: “It felt wonderful and I enjoyed every minute of it.”   Former Newham College student Linda and current student Didi modelling Bollywood clothes Brooke Swinney, 19, Limehouse is studying hairdressing and contributed a hairstyle based on an animal for the Chinese New Year designs. She made a cobra snake design while her classmates worked on dragons or roosters hairstyles. She said: “It was very difficult and was challenging but I loved doing it.” In the evening, £2,000 was raised to help students in financial need through, Learning Revolution Trust, a charity that works with Newham College.

Students find friendship and job offers during Euro job stint
Two weeks work experience in Germany led to an east London student being offered a job. Hairdressing student Michael Findlay, 34, Stratford, was given the job opportunity after colouring, cutting and styling hair at a salon in Dresden, east Germany.He was part of an intercultural, work experience programme in April organised by the European Union, British Council and Newham College London.Michael said: “The manager told me that if I was over there again, he would offer me a job in his salon. I may be over there visiting at the end of August so I would do that.” Michael worked in a well established salon, Friseursalon with a fellow student, Sheila Safo, 26, Abbey Wood. Newham College students Michael and Sheila with their certificates as they review photos of their experience Over the next year, Michael wants to continue his studies and gain experience at Newham College London and its salon in East Ham. He continued: “I went over there to learn as much as I can about their different techniques. Now, I use six new techniques in my work because of what I learned. “I had preconceived ideas about how they were cold, stern and logical. There was an element of truth to that but there’s also so much more. “When at work they put all their focus on work but outside they let their hair down. I found they had a respect for people. We had to call people ‘sir’ and ‘madam’ and behave differently towards older people. I actually prefer it over there.”Fellow student, Shelia, had a great time working in Dresden and would urge black students to grab similar opportunities. During her two weeks, hairdressing trainee, Sheila did not meeting any other black people, but she did not feel isolated. She said: “I saw one black person walking by me on the street but my experience was great. It made me more aware of different cultures. “People there were more friendly and open. They were more peaceful, calm and trustworthy than people in London. I’d do it again and it made me think about working abroad. “Also, it proved to me that hard work pays and if you put in 100 percent, it’ll be recognised.” Last week at the East Ham Campus, he received a certificate for his work alongside some of the 23 other Newham College, Health and Social Care, Customer Service, Beauty, Hairdressing and Business students. The students worked in German, Finland, and Spain as part of the EU’s Leonardo work placement programme. In another programme, 10 college students swopped places with students from the southern Italian resort of Salento. They researched tourism in Southern Italy and East London. Both programmes aimed at encouraging migration and trade within the EU by comparing skills and breaking down cultural and linguistic barriers.Newham College is set to expand opportunities to these programmes over the next few years. East Ham Campus Deputy Director, Steve Smith said: “We think it’s a great opportunity to increase our students’ choices when they make decisions about their future.”
