Why study Beauty Therapy at Bournville College:
As a beauty therapy student at Bournville College, you will benefit from quality teaching from highly trained, enthusiastic and qualified staff. You will be trained in our fantastic beauty salon Urban Serenity, using high quality professional products and equipment. You will perform treatments on members of the public, therefore learning in a realistic working environment whilst gaining skills in communication and client care. Courses include training in various professional product ranges as well as guest speakers from the industry.
In our recent Ofsted inspection, one of the inspectors used a beauty therapy lesson as an example of best practice: ‘In many practical lessons learners work well in groups, pairs and across levels and courses to share ideas and learn from each other. For example in a beauty therapy lesson, learners on advanced programmes successfully mentored intermediate-level learners. They helped them prepare for a forthcoming college theatre production by advising them on a range of beauty therapy treatments such as eyebrow shaping and theatrical makeup. This emphasis and these activities prepare learners extremely well for progression to employment and higher education.’
