Beauty Therapy

We live in an image-conscious society – and that means plenty of opportunities for young therapists.

TCAT has spent thousands of pounds on renovating and refreshing its on-site facilities, and The Retreat is a modern training facility in which to learn your trade.

Whether you are looking for an introduction to the hair and beauty industry, or want to improve your skills in a specific area, there’s a course that meets your needs.

The choice includes a specialist Hair and Media Make-Up programme which looks at day and evening make-up, photographic make-up, and face painting. Students also learn a range of hair technology skills.

Other skills covered in The Retreat include basic and advanced manicure, pedicure, skincare, body massage, electrotherapy, waxing, nail treatments, epilation, stone therapy, eye treatments and spa work.

If you love the idea of making people feel good and look their best, a job as a beauty therapist could be perfect for you.

Did you know? The perfect beauty therapist is described as someone who is ‘open and friendly’. You need to be able to make clients feel relaxed, and also to be a good listener.
