    I attended the Spa body massage course which I thoroughly enjoyed. Our tutor Lisa was lovely and made the course very enjoyable and learnt a lot from this 2 day course. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanted a career in massage therapy. I will be booking more courses in the future with The Beauty Academy. Thank you!

    I’m currently doing my VCTC Level 2 & 3 with The Beauty Academy in Birmingham and I am loving all of my courses. I’ve had the pleasure of having both Yvonne and Katy for courses  and they’re both attentive to myself and the other students, I feel very supported… You simply cannot fault the phenomenal tutors. The support team for the coursework is great and they’re always there to help! Chloe and Vicky at head office have both been extremely helpful in my journey so far. Thank you to everyone at The Beauty Academy.
