 Student Testimonial

Sarah

I qualified as a Beauty Therapist eight years ago in a private college after doing a part time beauty course.  I left the industry for some time but was keen to go back and refresh my skills and knowledge.  When Beauty Therapy became available in Westport CFE, I was delighted as I did not need to travel far.  I started all over again in Level 5 and I haven’t looked back since.  This course has taught me so much that I had never learned before!  The products and equipment in the College are of the highest standard and there is a lovely working atmosphere here.  My knowledge and confidence has doubled.  I love it!
