HAVERING College is launching a programme of new specialist Hair and Beauty training courses, aimed at beauty therapists and hairdressers.
The Retreat - the college's industry-standard beauty salon at its Ardleigh Green Campus in Hornchurch, Greater London, is offering courses in:
• Level 3 Award in Body Massage
• Level 3 Award in Microdermabrasion
• Level 2 Certificate in Make-up, Eyes and Brows
• Level 2 Certificate in Nail Technology Services – manicure, pedicure and nail art
• Level 3 Award in Cutting Men's Hair.
The part-time courses vary in length from five to 20 weeks and prices start from £205. All the courses will start in March.
Havering College Head of School for Hair, Beauty and Complementary Therapies, Lesley Chantler said: "This is a great opportunity for salon owners, existing therapists and hairdressers, to refresh their skills.
"Our message is that if you need to upskill so that you can offer the latest treatments you may want to study Microdermabrasion, a firm favourite with all clients.
"You may be considering a change in career and want flexibility with your studies so being able to study part time may be just what you require.
"We are offering career consultations for people who want to get back into work but may need to update their skills. We can also deliver bespoke training packages for salon owners looking to upskill their teams."
The training will be undertaken in the state-of-the art training salons at The Retreat in Hornchurch or The Lanes in Brentwood. The salons use leading brands including:
• L'Oréal Professional
