    I have learnt a lot during my time in the course even new things that never thought I’d learn. My tutor found ways to keep the course interesting such as playing games that helped us remember what we have learnt.

    At beauty college, I completed a level two and level three in nail technology. When I finished training CPBA, I continued to practice and study, focusing on acrylics because that is what I wanted to work with. I created social media accounts to connect with people in my area and then my career just went from there! I now have a business with regular clients and I rent space at Glamour Ready, a salon in Walton on the Hill, Surrey. The skills and qualifications that I have gained from going to beauty school have enabled me to be able to work within salons and push myself within self employment where there are no limits to my success. I always wanted to be self employed so it could fit around my daughter and so I could provide a better future for her. One day, I would like to open my own salon and bring out my own brand of nail products.

    I had a little bit of previous experience and I was already interested in nails, so I decided to get a professional qualification to help me with my next step. I completed a level three diploma in nail technology at CPBA. The beauty course went for 17 weeks, part-time at one and a half days each week. I really enjoyed my beauty training. Everyone was helpful and my tutor knew a lot. It was just a re-ally good atmosphere to learn in. Once I finished the beauty therapy course, I began to work in a salon as a nail technician. After about six months I was given the opportunity to teach at CPBA and I’ve now been tutoring at the beauty academy for about two years and I absolutely love it, it’s amazing.

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.

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.
