Beautician Courses

Internationally Accredited Beautician Courses

Depending on where one is employed, the job description of a beautician may vary greatly from one employer to the next, so it is in your best interest to attend as comprehensive a course as possible, in order not to limit your career and employment opportunities. 

Even during recent adverse economic conditions worldwide, the beauty industry has consistently grown and outperformed many other business categories. Today, aesthetics are viewed as an integral part of overall health and skin care, having become a well-regarded profession, requiring formal study and college course qualifications.

Premier School 

Founded in 1965, our beauty and make-up design school offers aspirant beauticians the best possible, most comprehensive tuition of world-class standards and the benefit of 49 years of experience in specialised training of the highest standards.

Beauty therapy courses on offer at our institution span 3 years, although each year concludes with examinations and a diploma. It is therefore relatively straightforward to resume your studies at the next level, if you find yourself in the unfortunate position of having to interrupt your studies for any reason.

However, students may only enrol for both the second and third year courses after attaining their diploma for the previous year’s module; the full 3 years of study material is sequential.

Professional Courses

On completion of the first year, during which learners gain detailed knowledge and understanding of fundamental practical and theoretical facets of body and skin care treatments, successful candidates qualify as beauty specialists.

Year two builds on knowledge and skills gained in the students’ first year, extending to advanced massage, facial and body therapies, Phyto, Hydrotherapy and Thalasso treatments, and is focussed on body therapy. Third year tuition, spa therapy, is invaluable to learners who wish to specialise in assisting cosmetic surgeons or taking up a position at a spa treatment centre.

International Recognition 

All of our diploma courses are concluded by writing London’s renowned City & Guilds international examinations in order to graduate. City & Guilds is the largest, most respected international awarding body, meaning that those who possess such a qualification conform to their superior standards of training and expertise. 

Upon successfully completing each year, learners may elect to complete various ITEC examinations, in order to become members and in so doing, attain international recognition of their qualifications. ITEC sets the benchmark standards internationally in make-up, beauty and allied therapy fields.

After completion of the second and third years of studies, graduates are encourage to sit for their CIDESCO membership exams too, enabling them to work nationally and internationally in each speciality for which they hold such membership.

CIDESCO also sets international standards in make-up, beauty therapy and special effects artistry, while additionally fostering closer relationships with medical professional organisations which associate with specialist beauticians and other industry professionals.

This erudite body strives to keep all members up to date with the latest information, techniques and developments, whilst focussing closely on maintaining and increasing the professional proficiency and integrity of members. It is worthwhile to note that our college is the only make-up school in South Africa to be CIDESCO accredited.
