One of the coldest winters on record and OICB was forced to close its doors for 2 days as students were unable to battle their way through the snow!

The students managed to “escape college again” during March to complete the obligatory 2 weeks work experience which many of you will remember!

Some of the more exciting destinations included in Oklahoma, USA, Malta, St Vincent and South Africa. Others enjoyed the experience of working in some of the UK’s leading Spas including Nirvana Spa, Grayshott Spa, Lucknam Park, Heythrop Spa and Ragdale Hall Health Hydro. With many local prestigious Salons supporting our work experience scheme students worked at the Randolph Hotel, Esporta, Cannells, Chesterton Golf Club, Enhance, Two’s Company, Head to Toe, Cedar Therapy and Mulberrys. Premier Salons in Wales and Sussex were happy to offer placements to students who came from the area.
