a royal visit
Francesco Group stylists had a royal visitor to their replica salon at the 2013 Skills Show in Birmingham.
They’d set up the stand to showcase hair and beauty training and apprenticeships and had teams demo’ing curls, updos and plaits, while talking about their training experiences.
Then HRH Princess Anne visited the stand and chatted to Birmingham Academy Manager, Sue Lubke and all the students about the training that Francesco Group delivers. Princess Anne then discussed the importance of apprenticeships.
Telling the princess about the importance of education, Sue said: “We’re really passionate about constantly raising the standards in our industry and how important it is to keep recruiting new young people into the industry.”
