Lee Stafford Academies launches at Chelmsford College

The widely acclaimed Lee Stafford Academy of Hairdressing has opened for business at Chelmsford College.  With a Commercial ethos which focuses on the ultimate employability of the students the Academy raises the bar for the overall quality of the learner experience.  The World Class physical facilities are complimented by a top training team and stylists who have spent months perfecting their techniques under Lee’s personal supervision

Renowned hairdresser and celebrity, Lee Stafford, is delighted to announce the fulfilment of a life-long dream – the opening of the first Lee Stafford Academy, in Chelmsford, Essex - his home county.  Lee has always been passionate about education and standards, both for himself, for younger generations of aspiring hairdressers and for the industry itself.

Lee says, ‘when I first got into hairdressing I would attend as many seminars as I possibly could and I was always the guy down the front asking 1000 questions.  I am passionate about the hairdressing industry and want to communicate what a great career it can be – the creativity, the diversity, the opportunities - but I also want to help to raise the profile of, and standardise, the profession and make hairdressing an industry of which Britain can be proud.

Realising this ambition was never going to be easy and in 2010 Lee turned to the leading education consultancy Tenon Education Training and Skills for assistance.

Tenon developed the educational model and consequently established Lee Stafford Academies Ltd as the vehicle for taking the concept forward. After careful consideration it was recognised that the teaching ethos and business skills of the team at Chelmsford College were an ideal match for the project to be realised.

Neil Hulme, Managing Director of Lee Stafford Academies said ‘We are delighted to be working with such a forward thinking College as Chelmsford – they understand the Academy concept and have invested in the development of their staff for the long term benefit of students’.

David Law, Principal of Chelmsford College, adds ‘Our partnership with Lee is a meeting of like minds. The primary purpose for all involved is to provide even better hair and beauty training to the people of Essex. The academy provides stunning facilities and training which will be second to none’.

Lee and Tenon have a long-term vision is to have a network of Academies right across the Country.  The development at Chelmsford represents the start of a journey – a journey which is already being widely acclaimed.
