Will I get a job as a Beauty

Therapist after completing one of your courses

• Well this really depends on the following factors:

Many Beauty Salons contact us asking for Beauty Therapists

to work in their businesses. We do sometimes

refer students unto those clients,

however we must emphasize that

we will only refer students who have shown

an exceptional attitude towards their coursework

and their behavior is also of a high standard

We will not refer students who we have

found to have a a poor attitude towards

their studies and their work.
