    I learnt everything in the level three make up artistry beauty course. It was full time for six months and it covered the basics, such as how to apply everyday make-up to special effects, to how to sell products. Learning about special effects was the most inter-esting for me because I would really like to work in film production. I really enjoyed creating bruises and wounds, turning people into witches or ageing them. I also liked creating period make-up and working with prosthetics. I finished the beauty training in June, and by September I had a job. I work at a Chanel counter and as a freelance make-up artist doing every day and occasion make-up. I really like my customers and colour matching and working with different skin types, and that I can be creative in my job.

This is a beauty academy, who decided to begin a dental nursing course, I have been working in Dentistry for 18 years .I was asked by this academy to help with structuring the course content and teach for them, However they have only 1 student, who did not turn up for the lesson. and for this reason the academy refused to pay me for my hours which i dedicated to delivering the lesson, This academy is very unprofessional. I have worked for various academies and colleges and still do. This is the first time i have experienced non payment for my time, because their ONE! student did not attend lesson. my fault? how?.Super unprofessional.

I’m only giving 1* because I finished my course In August and still I haven’t received any diploma which means I can’t find work 🙄There is more than 6 months and nobody seems to care to provide me with my diploma. I spent every week 2 hours traveling to get to the course and learn plus to get the qualifications,but still here I am with no job in the industry because they are requesting my qualifications which I can’t provide

I am completely outraged by the work of CPBA and I do not recommend this school to anyone! I wanted to study Beauty Therapist L2, so before starting the course registration I asked several times what days the training would take place and I was assured that everything would take place on SATURDAYS and TUESDAYS. Since my agenda is very busy, just because a full day of training would have taken place on a SATURDAY, I agreed to fill out an application. When all the paperwork was in place, I received an email that the course would take place on MONDAYS and TUESDAYS! I tried to send them an email to get an explanation of why everything had changed and why I had not been notified of the possible changes! Nobody wanted to reply to me back! My emails were ignored! I intend to report this school to the Department of Education! They took out a loan from the government on my behalf and I can’t even attend the course and come to school because of the changed dates! I am very angry!

Rubbish!! I attended the college at Leyton. It was a government funded course and we were meant to receive a bursary to help pay for our travel etc, as I was travelling by train for 1 and a half hours to get there. In total I spent up to £16 a day to get there. They lied to us about the bursary saying that they didn’t do it. After contacting student finance, I found out they did in fact do bursary payments but once confronted they claimed that it was too late to apply. They were extremely rude and didn’t even try to help. They made us pay £160 for equipment that would’ve been a total of £50 on Amazon. The products were NOT GOOD AT ALL. CHEAP PRODUCTS!!! The communication and help they provided was terrible. When help was needed, I was ignored for about two weeks before I got a response.This is not worth it at allAVOID THIS PLACE, ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS THEIR MONEY.In response to the owners reply, your colleagues have given false information because that is what we were told after finding out about the bursary. I have no intentions of travelling that far, I just wanted to give my honest review.

Just completed gel nail course which was held online due to covid. It was fabulous! So much covered it such a short time without skipping any corners. I feel really lucky to have seen this advertised on Facebook and accepted from application.The course required quick English and maths test along with a small deposit with the promise of a £5 Amazon voucher upon registration. On completion of the course the deposit is refunded.I got the voucher and also having completed the course was also refunded my deposit.The course was held on Zoom so didn't even have to leave the house. I found it very easy to follow and ask questions if needed. All our lessons have been uploaded onto YouTube for our reference after if needed.I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Although I found the initial application process quite tricky the actual lessons and treatments learned were fabulous.I would definitely sign up for another. The tutor was lovely and very patient and I am really impressed with how everything was done easy on a screen. Way better than travelling to courses and I hope these become a way of teaching for the future. The group I was in for my classes was quite small (I think 7 or 8) so that was nice as well as smaller classes are easier to follow

I have truly enjoyed this short Barbering course. I have learned so much in such a short time so much more than i was excepting, theory and practical. My tutor Syreeta Parris was amazing, so patient, easy going and so informative. The group were lovely and this course was so easy to follow. I loved the live recordings and any clips were send to you the next day by email. I loved it. The CPBA staff were very quick to respond to any emails and you were always kepted in the loop. Thank you again a skill for life.
