Hair, Beauty & Therapies
Are you looking to develop your skills and knowledge and to expand and explore your creative side in the ever changing hairdressing and beauty / holistic therapies industry?
Students at Shrewsbury College will develop their creative talents in our brand new purpose built hair and beauty training facility, Evolve Academy.
Whatever your level of ability, there will be a course for you, including full and part-time modes of study.
We offer Apprenticeships at intermediate and advanced levels in both hairdressing and beauty, where you can learn on the job, attending College on a day release basis.
You’ll be training in the purpose built facilities of our commercial hair and beauty training salons where you will develop all the professional skills, competencies and knowledge needed to work in your chosen discipline. There is a strong emphasis in our training programmes towards employment and professional industry practice
There are a wealth of career opportunities in all the industries, working in salons and spas or as stylists for TV, film, theatre or advertising agencies. Many beauty therapists and hairdressers set up their own business after working in the industry for a number of years.
This subject area has courses which can be taken alongside GCSEs and other qualifications.
