The beauty therapy industry is expanding to respond to new health, appearance and beauty trends and treatments. The growing demand from consumers is creating opportunities for skilled beauty therapists and specialists.
We offer beauty therapy courses from levels 5 to 8 (HND) to prepare you for employment within this industry.
We have excellent links with local employers and related organisations, which means students learn directly from specialists in the industry. Previous beauty therapy students have benefited from sessions with Ellisons, Eve Taylor, Macdonald Houston House and Neal’s Yard Remedies.
Learning happens everywhere, not just in classrooms. We take our students on visits, with previous students visiting local businesses and the Scottish Beauty Show to see demonstrations of the latest treatments and products. Our students also get the opportunity to compete all over the UK in World Skills and Association of Hairdressers & Therapists (AHT) competitions.
Many beauty therapy students also gain direct work experience. These let students ‘try before they buy’, and can even lead to permanent job offers. Previous students have gained events experience from helping at The Gathering (SCVO), Party at the Palace, and the Children in Scotland annual conference.
