How to Find a Great Beauty School in Gauteng

Gauteng and its largest city, Johannesburg, is the economic hub of South Africa. It is the most densely populated province and city.  Consequently, offering more schools and institutes for education and training than other provinces and cities countrywide. As always, when the demand is there, so is the supply.

In our case, this refers to beauty schools in Gauteng, of which there are many. However, not all Gauteng beauty schools meet the best standards of education and training, so it is imperative that aspiring beauty professionals make an optimal selection. Research is required prior to choosing a beauty school.


Considerations and Questions

  • How long has the school been in existence?
  • What is the facility’s reputation?
  • Is the school, as well as its courses and qualifications, accredited and recognised?
  • By whom?
  • Who owns and manages the facility?
  • Is the facility registered with an appropriate educational authority?
  • Which courses and range of courses are on offer?
  • Does the school have its own campus?
  • Are learner, parent, or sponsor visits to the campus encouraged prior to enrolment?
  • Is the school located in a decent area?
