Beauty Therapy

The beauty therapy industry is expanding to respond to new 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 4 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 and spa days and placements with Norton House, Kohler Waters Spa at Old Course Hotel St Andrews and Apex Hotels  With many students gaining employment from these experiences. 

Learning happens everywhere, not just in classrooms. We take our students on visits to  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.
