Want to find out more about who we are?

Our mission is to arm our students with the knowledge and skills to excel in this industry. We understand that courses and qualifications are a stepping stone on the journey to your goals. Many of our students speak multiple languages, some are internationally skilled or qualified and we work closely with each of you to get the right advice and keep on the right path for YOU!

Our Principal and Founder started the company as a new mum of twins almost 30 years ago. Yvonne found that she wanted to explore the beauty industry further but couldn’t find courses to suit her new (very busy!) schedule. She needed courses that could fit in and around school drop-off and pick up times and around current work commitments without impacting her current commitments. She started the business with therapists just like you and I in mind! Our courses are crafted with you in mind, accessibility to course materials is easy and convenient, class sessions are flexible and held at times when you’re likely to be able to attend to receive the support you need!

Yes! Excitingly, we noticed a gap in the market for students who were new business owners or current business owners looking to expand their business and looking for support on just how to go about putting the necessaries in place depending on where you want to take your business. Visit our Business Support page for more information.

Students have the option to move straight into VTCT courses or learn a skill or skills with the short online courses to gain foundation knowledge and understanding of their chosen subject. If your own path to success requires the need for VTCT certification later on down the line, we specialise in fast-track assessment routes whereby skilled students who already possess the skill and knowledge and want to move into assessments without the need to spend time re-training, getting you learning today and earning tomorrow!
