"After a lot or research and consideration I decided to undertake my Level 2 NVQ in Beauty Therapy in Leicester. I have been more than happy with my choice. From the 'real' salon setting to the high quality tuition I feel fully prepared and set for industry life. This course is very hands on and made me get into my therapists role from day 1, dealing with clients and carrying out treatments whilst learning about all aspects of beauty treatments in the classroom. 

I have gone on to open and run a successful salon as a result of this course. If you are willing to put in the hard work and want to move swiftly but thoroughly through your qualification I would highly recommend  this course"

“Really friendly staff and tutors, and a great add on course to expand my portfolio.  Will be coming back to do more courses very soon.”

Asmita, 29, Threading Diploma

“pretty impressed that you can learn all this in one week!  Some of my friends still have 8 months to go in their 1 year part time beauty courses at college, and I’m earning money from it already.”

Nadia, 20, 1wk Beauty Course

I took a 1 week beauty course 2 years ago and learned 6 different skills. I was 4 months pregnant at the time and I wanted to be able to work part time from home. I now have a 1 year old son and I combine looking after him with working 10-15 hours a week. I'm so glad i did this course as it has given me the ability to both look afetr my son and earn my own money. I plan to take the 4 week hairdressing course when he is a bit older.
