Beauty Therapy Career Courses

If you are fascinated by and completely in love with all things to do with health, skin care and beauty, it may be time to follow your heart. Harness your creative talents and interests by creating a career for yourself, one that you’ will find both fulfilling and lucrative. Enrol in one of our courses to become a beauty therapist, make-up or special effects artist.  It is in your best interest to study at a reputable institution that offers recognised and accredited beauty therapy courses and qualifications. Unfortunately, numerous learners in various fields have found themselves in an awful position, having parted with hard-earned tuition fee monies, only to find that the educational facility with whom they had registered was fraudulent, fleecing them out of their cash and issuing quasi-qualifications. 49 Years of Experience Our highly regarded beauty, make-up design and special effects training academy has been in operation for some 49 years, since being founded in 1965. This makes us the longest established organisation of our industry in South Africa, with a veritable wealth of experience, enthusiastically passed on to our learners. Throughout, we have remained committed to providing only the highest standards of tuition, course material, products and procedures. All our qualifications are recognised and accredited; even students who have successfully completed our short, intensive part-time courses are issued with bona fide certificates. South African Educational Accreditation  We are registered with Services Seta as an accredited and compliant educational institution, ensuring that all of our courses and related qualifications are nationally recognised and accredited. Internationally Accredited Qualifications  Many graduates go on to gain additional working experience overseas, after equipping themselves with the necessary international accreditation offered by our academy, which is itself accredited by these world renowned, astute bodies.
  • City & Guilds – most highly regarded and largest international awarding body.
  • ITEC – successful completion of these examinations equips graduates to work anywhere internationally.
  • CIDESCO International – responsible for setting and maintaining high minimum industry standards worldwide. 
Beauty Therapy Courses  Three separate courses constitute our beauty therapy programme. Although a diploma is issued after successful completion of each year, the second and third years may only be undertaken in sequence, after completion of the preceding year/s’ study. Year One – Beauty Specialist  Gain a comprehensive, deep understanding of initial, foremost practical and theoretical aspects of skin and body therapies, utilising latest electrical devices, manicures, pedicures, waxing, make-up, and all typical health and skin care therapies. Second Year – Body Therapy  A progression of the first year’s study, designed for treatment of clients requiring more complex therapies, advanced massage, face and body techniques and treatments, whilst this year also incorporates practical clinical and business experience to build up entrepreneurial abilities. Third Year – Spa Therapy  This diploma course caters for those students who would like to specialise in the increasingly sought-after fields of medical spa therapeutics or as assistants to plastic surgeons. Continuously updated course content that is not touched upon in first and second years of study, and each third year module, completed on ITEC level, is seen as an independent qualification. Create Your Career Now  It is never too soon to take the first step in being the architect and creator of your career. Once you have completed our beauty therapy courses, you will be well on the way to determining your own future and fortune, as you have attained the qualifications and experience needed for the next step of your exciting journey.

I love to experiment with the power of photography, specialising in conceptual & fashion, although I love shooting anything that challenges me. I shoot on location but also have my own studio situated in Parktown, Johannesburg.
