Modern, fully equipped beauty and holistic therapy clinics at MidKent College's Medway and Maidstone Campuses in Kent provide an excellent training environment in which students can develop their skills in and understanding of a broad range of beauty therapy treatments.
Both clinics are open to fee-paying members of the public, meaning learners get plenty of real-life, hands on experience of working with clients in a department judged by Ofsted as Outstanding.
Dedicated specialist tutors, most of whom have a minimum of ten years’ experience (and some of whom have worked as far afield as Bermuda and the Far East), provide learners with expert tuition and a realistic view of the career options available to them.
A range of full and part-time courses and evening classes are available. Read on for a full list.
An extensive range of higher education courses are also available at MidKent College.
Most of our courses cover a variety of treatments, which you will practise on other members of your group until you have developed enough confidence to carry out treatments on members of the public.
