    Everything was perfect . I’m very impressed by Candor Professional Beauty Academy. I learned new treatments and I filled up the gaps in my knowledge which improved my career.

    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.

It was different to anything I had done before and I had the opportunity to learn a new skill. I like how informal the course was and although using Zoom would not be my ideal way to learn, it was not as bad as I thought it would be.
