Level 3 in Beauty Make-up Techniques
Previous school: North Shropshire College
I joined Level 3 in Beauty Make-up Techniques as an external student previously studying health and social care, in the hopes that I would be able to go on to peruse a degree in makeup. Fast forward eight months and that’s exactly what I’m about to do! I have been offered a place at the University of Salford to carry on my education studying makeup for fashion, in my favourite city! None of this would have been possible without the help of Becky and the other wonderful tutors who have guided us all through the past year. I can genuinely say that I have thoroughly enjoyed every part of this course.
Level 3 Diploma Massage Therapies
Previous school: Ysgol Dinas Bran, Llangollen
I completed the Level 2 Beauty Therapy course and progressed onto the Level 3 Massage course. I am now loving using the skills I have learnt whilst working at the prestigious Lion Quays Spa carrying out an extensive range of Beauty treatments.
Level 2 Diploma in Beauty Therapy
Previous school: Church Stretton School
I’ve always had a keen interest in beauty therapy and skin care. I started the Level 2 Beauty Specialist Diploma and managed to achieve a part-time position at Riverside Beauty in Ludlow. I have developed throughout my course with the support of my tutors and peers. My next step is to progress onto the Level 3 Massage course and I can’t wait to start!
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.
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.
