The beauty therapy industry is continuing to grow in response to a change in trends, meaning individuals are more conscious of their appearance and health, and the huge range of beauty treatments on offer to enhance these things. This growing demand has created opportunities for skilled therapists and specialists.
As a college, we offer a range of beauty therapy courses in a variety of different levels, from Level 5 up to Level 8 (HND) to prepare you for employment within this industry.
We have excellent links with local employers and related organisations, and we use these relationships to benefit our students by bringing in knowledgeable speakers from the industry. Our previous beauty therapy students have received sessions from representatives of Ellisons, Eve Taylor, Houston House and Neals Yard.
As a college, we know that not all learning takes place within a classroom or college setting. We take our students out to various different organisations and settings, 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 in World Skills and Association of Hairdressers & Therapists (AHT) competitions which take them across the UK.
Many of our beauty therapy students also complete a placement to allow them to build the skills and experience needed to excel in their future career. Previous students have also had the opportunity to gain hands on experience from offering services at events such as The Gathering, Party at the Palace and the Children in Scotland Annual Conference.
