How to Choose a Beauty Therapy Training Provider
So you want to do some beauty therapy training. You know what type of course you want to do, and depending on the course, you might have saved up for it for a long time. But how do you know which training provider you can trust to give you high quality training, value for money, and a great experience?
All beauty courses are not equal. Standards and prices can vary, and some courses won’t prepare you very well for working in the industry at all.
We want to take the headache out of deciding where to do your training, by giving you some tips on how to choose a beauty therapy training provider.
Choosing a training provider; what you need to know
What experience does the training provider have?
How long have they been providing training and what relevant industry experience do they have?
How much is the training going to cost?
Training is a big financial investment usually, and while more expensive training is not necessarily better quality, neither is going cheap. It’s difficult, but before you part with any cash, try thinking about the benefits that the course is going to give you in the medium to long term.
Ask if the course cost involves materials and equipment or not, and factor in how much travelling to and from the course is going to cost too.
What facilities does the training provider give you access to?
Is there adequate space for delivery of the training, and is there ample car parking? Is all equipment you’ll be using safe and in good working order?
How is the training delivered?
Are training dates flexible and do you know exactly what will be required of you? For some courses, you might need to do written coursework for example.
Is the course accredited?
Check that your chosen course is accredited. This means that by passing it, you have been assessed to be of a certain standard. Employers will always ask for industry standard courses.
Do you get support after your course?
Will your tutor be accessible after the course so you can ask questions and get some guidance?
Do they have good feedback from learners?
This is a really good test of how good a training provider is. Have people left good reviews about the training they received or are the reviews not so good?
Why choose Essential Beauty Academy for your training?
Our director, Steph, has over 20 years’ experience in the industry, and she’s worked everywhere from salons, to cruise ships, in schools, and now she’s the lead tutor in her own business.
Steph moved into teaching because she wanted to share her knowledge, skills, and experience with others, and to teach them how to do the job she loves.
She strives to provide learners with a friendly and supportive learning environment, because she understands that students can lose their confidence if they feel like they can’t quite get the hang of something. Doing your training with someone who really cares makes all the difference.
Steph teaches almost every course and classes are kept small, which makes for a relaxed learning environment.
When you leave the academy, you’ll not only leave with the skills to do treatments, you’ll leave with the confidence to be a very successful therapist.
Choose Essential Beauty Academy for a great learning experience.
