Celebrity hairdresser to speak at careers festival
20 February 2019
An additional key speaker has been announced for this year's Powys Careers Festival which takes place on Wednesday March 6th.
Celebrity hairdresser Lee Stafford, who has just announced a collaboration with the NPTC Group of Colleges, will be attending the Positive Pathways Powys festival at Llanelwedd.
The careers festival is one of the biggest in the UK and will see some 3,000 students from high schools, special schools and colleges attend from throughout Powys.
Lee is a familiar face on TV and is a regular on ITV's This Morning and his other TV appearances include Celebrity Scissor hands, Secret Millionaire and Pointless.
As well as delivering a masterclass on the main stage at the festival he will tell students how his career developed.
As part of the tie-up with the college, he will work with the Hair and Applied Therapies team at the NPTC Group and help deliver first class Michelin Star standard training. The experienced teaching staff will undergo intense training the Lee Stafford 'recipe' way so they can pass on the knowledge to the students that are on their courses.

- the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society
- the NPTC Group of Colleges
- WestEnt audio visual
