You will have the opportunity to gain industry level qualifications in a live salon environment at the college.

Each year the college competes in World Skills Beauty Therapy Competition which focuses on the role and tasks of a Beauty Therapist. This includes carrying out a range of treatments which reflect both current and traditional beauty therapy treatments. Over the last year the college hosted the Eastern Regional Heat and we had three learners make it through to the World Skills Final at the NEC.
