Course introduction

Are you passionate about forging a career in the beauty industry? If so, this course could be your passport to success.

Beauty is a dynamic and ever-expanding economic sector that constantly needs new recruits who understand the latest techniques and health and safety rules.

Once qualified you could find yourself accepting a job with considerable responsibility along with a salary to match.

Furthermore, because beauty is allied to the health and leisure sectors you could discover new opportunities to travel, live and work in other countries.

For example, one past student now works at Sir Richard Branson’s exclusive Necker Island resort in the Caribbean.
