Level 3 in Beauty Make-Up Techniques
Previous school: Lacon Childe School
I progressed from the Level 2 course and really enjoy it - you need to have a passion for beauty and be willing to work hard. After college I would like to work in a salon then, with some experience, set up on my own. Having the commercial salon, Evolve, on campus is great experience for the students.
Level 2 Makeup and Nails
Previous school: Meole Brace School
I wasn’t sure I could do makeup and nails – I have always loved it, but decided to study business after school. However, I wasn’t enjoying myself and decided to take the leap of faith into beauty and I haven’t looked back since. After I’ve completed this course I want to progress onto Level 3. The course is fun and everybody is really nice – teachers and students.
This course is linked to roles within the NHS.
