The Springs Spa was established in 2010 to provide hair and beauty therapy training courses and we have since seen a dramatic expansion, with a purpose-built hair and beauty salon.
All our courses are taught by an experienced and professional team. Every one of our instructors can confidently proclaim their absolute dedication in providing the highest standard of tuition in all of our hairdressing and beauty therapy courses including NVQ courses in hairdressing and NVQ in beauty therapy.
To ensure these high standards are always adhered to and that the students are always in a position to fulfil their potential, all of our programmes are taught in classes with a maximum of eight students to each instructor.
Most of our students have no previous experience in the industry and are entirely new to the world of hair and beauty therapy. Therefore, all of our instructors don a professional yet relaxed and friendly approach to training, ensuring even the most apprehensive of students are quickly put at ease. We have students travel considerable distances to train with us.
During each hair and beauty course, emphasis is placed on practical work in small groups where each student receives a great deal of individual attention and there is a lot of opportunity to ask questions or raise concerns. Our students say they are delighted at how quickly they learn and how confident and competent they feel after just a few sessions with us.
Following successful completion of their training, all students are awarded Level 1 Diploma in an Introduction to the hair and beauty sector.
