Hair, Beauty Therapy and Inclusive Learning
Level 3 Diploma in Beauty Therapy
"I left Cross & Passion College with 8 GCSE’s and 2 ‘A’ levels in June 2013. I enrolled in the VRQ Level 2 beauty course at NRC in September 2013. From the first day I knew I had made the right decision. The staff and students were all very welcoming and throughout the course I felt supported. In addition to the written and practical experience involved in the course, I also had the opportunity to attend beauty shows. They enabled me to learn about current product ranges and beauty trends and to make contact with beauty reps. I also participated in a pamper day for clients with learning disabilities. I gained valuable experience in dealing with customers and thoroughly enjoyed the day. In February 2014 I took a part-time job in a beauty salon in Ballymoney and grew in skill and confidence. In June 2014, following completion of my level 2 beauty course, I decided to open my own beauty salon in Cloughmills. I started off renting property one day per week but soon built up a regular clientele. I returned to NRC in September 2014 to study VRQ level 3 beauty therapy. My salon is now open on days that I am not studying and I intend to open full-time on completion of my level 3. As part of my course I recently participated in an event at NRC to promote and sell beauty products. I am now selling the tan and skin care range that I promoted in my salon. The NRC staff have always made themselves available to me, fully supported and encouraged me to succeed in beauty therapy and I am enjoying every minute of my chosen career. They have given me the necessary skills and contacts to have my own business and I would encourage future students to enrol and follow their career path with NRC."
