Hi everyone... was wondering if anyone here could help me at all?

I always wanted to be a Beauty Therapist since the age of about 11! I did some work exp, finished school, got accepted to the right college course (it was an HND as i’m from Scotland) but then at the last minute I changed my mind. The main reason being that i had really bad skin at the time and lost all my confidence, felt too self conscious to study beauty when I felt i looked so bad!

My career took a completely different direction and i became a PA then Air Hostess! ✈️

Anyway i am now 37, just had a baby and can’t really work as an Air Hostess anymore.

I would really like to finally break in to the beauty industry. I would ideally like to study Skin Care at an advanced level, and hopefully start my own business in a couple of years time. I’d like to specialise in skin treatments as this is the area that I have personally had problems with throughout my life and i’d like to help people similar issues.

I have had a look online and its a bit of a mine field with so many courses available! I really have no idea where to start!! I have seen a course called “Access to Aesthetics Diploma” by Sally Durant which looks good and gives Level 2 CIBTAC qualifications at the end of it. There are also similar courses available through Skin Philosophy (but without the CIBTAC qualification) and a few others too.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as the best courses to take or look in to?

Before people advise me to go to a local college - it is only Skin Care that i’m interested in. Local colleges only offer Beauty Therapy as a whole or Skin Care and Make Up - which is at quite a basic level.

So to re-iterate; I’d like to study Advanced Skin Care to the highest level possible with no previous beauty or medical training.

Any ideas??? Thanks xxx

I can personally recommend the Sally Durant courses. I don't know how it works - I have an NVQ2 and most of an NVQ3 and what I'm now doing is a level 4. I'm not sure what the entry is etc. Give them a call and make sure it's what you want.
They're is also another qualification with the Harley Group but not sure if they're what you need. Again, give them a call.
I know there are a few options to go through university etc. and do a degree but these are thin on the ground.

Good luck x

It was great, academically. Sadly, Sally Durant Aesthetic Education and Training went into liquidation on tuesday.
