Beauty Therapy College South Africa
Beauty Therapy College in South Africa Offers International Accreditation
At our specialist beauty and make-up design college’s dual campuses (in Johannesburg and the Roodepoort area), our curricula is designed to offer an extensive variety of detailed courses for the majority of beauty specialities, from artistry to aesthetics, prosthetics and special effects, to fashion, styling and therapy.
We’ve geared our college towards providing top standards of education, training and mentorship to South African students who wish to build a career and become professional practitioners in some or several of the wide variety of modern-day beauty techniques and therapies.
Career or Job
A career indicates your chosen occupation or profession for which you require specialised training, and it’s the occupational path which you follow for most of your working life, virtually to the exclusion of all other income generating pursuits.
On the other hand, a job refers to any piece of work incorporating certain duties for which one is paid.
Once specialised study and training are acquired, the student is engaged in pursuing a career, a profession which interests them and/or for which they have a passion, to the extent that they’re prepared to work hard in order to progress within their selected field.
In essence, a job is any task which is performed for remuneration. A career is a profession for which one has an overriding passion.
Equipped in South Africa for a Beauty Therapy Career
Our aim is to enable our learners to qualify, obtain national and international accreditation and become professional beauty therapists (or professional practitioners in various other beauty related fields). Local professional accreditation is in line with the standards laid down by Services Seta and our beauty therapy college in Johannesburg is registered and aligned with SAQA (South African Qualifications Authority).
Upon completion of their national examinations, students are encouraged to write the international accreditation and recognition exams for membership of the best international bodies and organisations – City & Guilds, ITEC and CIDESCO.
This latter accreditation is instrumental in paving the way for future professional career prospects. Graduates have the opportunity to work anywhere in the world, secure in the knowledge that they are in a position to be accepted professionally wherever they go to pursue their dreams.
Beauty Therapy Courses
The full beauty therapy course spans three years of full-time study, but is divided into three specialised modules, with a diploma awarded to candidates on successful completion of each year.
Year One – Beauty Specialist
This first year’s curriculum focuses on giving the student an in-depth knowledge of fundamental aspects of body and skin care therapies, both theoretically and in practice.
Second Year – Body Therapy
Following on from the initial year’s knowledge, the second year’s emphasis centres on numerous body therapies in more detail, covering advanced facial and body treatments, advanced massage techniques, plus Thalasso, Phyto and Hydrotherapy treatments.
Third, Final Year – Spa Therapy
Course material is even more specialised, equipping learners with the knowledge and practical skills to assist cosmetic surgeons in their practice, and/or working at a health and beauty or medical spa.
