hello everyone
can anyone help me? i saw a thread on here earlier and the lady who posted said she spent £600 on her nsi course, but when she wanted to enrole at college to take the nail tech course they didnt take it as a 'recognised qualification'.
this worries me as i am thinkingof taking the creative foundation course, but will that be recognised by salon employers? is it the same as having an nvq?? im really confused!
ALSO- i spoke to my local creative tutor who told me the owner company of creative has gone into liquidation, but will be up and running again soon. i really want to do the creative course as i hear its the best, but need some advice please??!!

It is and will be recognised by future salon employers and creative have not gone bust...hyperion group who are the uk distributors for creative have gone into liquidation.

no, I'm afraid not,the nearest academy for us is at Leeds but as we know isn't open at the moment, I did my foundation at Nottingham with a lovely lady called pat shaw, but she doesn't teach anymore xx

Is it Michelle at Salisbury? I met her yesterday and she told me they were importing straight from the U.S. Does this make sense to anyone? hope it helps

Ok I am pumping this up.

Although this qualification is recognised, is it the same as an NVQ or similar??
