What makes us the best?

Due to our sister company we work with the Global Spa and beauty leaders and educate our students in the latest developments in the industry. Something that is unique.  We pride ourselves on providing the very best training and our knowledge in the sector is second to none.

Our course theory is all delivered on line, so when you come to class then the time is dedicated to practical, allowing you to gain more practical experience.  We do test your learning on line and any additional help is given either in class or can be arranged over skype or the telephone, ensuring you are supported throughout the whole process.

We also have DVD’s that are available to purchase which are a great reminder of the routines of the course.

For any student that we feel needs extra experience we will invite you to attend again free of charge.  So you can have confidence that you are the best in the industry this is also helped by our small class sizes so we can identify any extra help you may need.

Our training school is regularly checked and we have internal and external audits for our training so you can have confidence that the course you are attending meets the Government guidelines.

Who have we trained...

We have trained therapist for the world’s most prestigious Spa’s such as Emirates Palace and Waldorf Astoria as well as therapists that work for celebrities and Royal Families.  We have also trained many people who have gone on to set up their own businesses.

We have a high level of new comers to the industry that are changing professions and we help guide them through their career.

Due to our contacts we often have a number of companies looking for therapists so we are often able to offer our students information about the latest vacancies.
