“It covered a comprehensive range of topics, which were clearly explained with a wide variety of resources that would be accessible for different learning styles.

“Practical hands-on learning is a huge component, which brings the theory learnings to life. I found the tutors extremely knowledgeable, approachable, and supportive.

“I would recommend this course to anyone looking to broaden their horizons in the world of beauty therapy,” said Francesca.

Huge Demand for Qualified Therapists

Course teacher, Clair Horan said that there is a huge demand for qualified therapists with the additional option of self-employment.

“Opportunities exist in areas like: beauty salons; health farms / leisure centres; cruise liners / in-flight therapist; make-up artist; make-up and skin care consultant; mobile therapist; salon owner; complementary therapist; technical sales representative; franchising, spa industry and Teaching/Training and many more,” Ms. Horan said.

Amazing Tuition on the Course

Another graduate said that as a former beauty therapy student with Kerry College she got amazing tuition on the trainee-ship course.

“I enjoyed learning all the practical elements and especially the anatomy and physiology from the excellent calibre of instructor-ship.

“I had previously been to two other beauty/sports therapy colleges before that, where the learning was solely self-directed and not integrated into the practical elements of the course.

“I am now delighted to be able to share my knowledge and experience as a therapist with 17 years experience as a sports massage/holistic therapist and the last 10 years as a spa/beauty therapist.

An Excellent and Rewarding Course

“I was self-employed for a long period and I ran a successful beauty and wellness business with two employees. They took over the business when I became a full time tutor.

“I’m enthusiastic about teaching and learning and this is an excellent course. It’s very rewarding and life changing.

“Learners can take their qualifications anywhere in the world and work abroad as I did. You will not regret it,” she said.
