Academy graduates

We are delighted to congratulate Monica Milne, Eileen Grantham and Danielle Dillon on successfully completing their VTCT Level 2 NVQ qualifications.

Sisters Monica and Eileen have worked in the professional hair and beauty business for a number of years. They wanted to update their skills and expand their treatment menu and particularly wanted to study together.

Monica says ‘we chose the Ellisons Academy for a number of reasons. When we spoke to the tutors they were caring and wanted to have the right way of working for us. The course was made up from short modules allowing us to study and build our qualification at our own pace. It also meant that the cost was spread out which was a real benefit, allowing us to pay as we went along and continue working in our businesses and with our clients’.

While they both said that the written work was initially daunting, the support they received made it much easier. They had the opportunity to sit in on additional training sessions, speak to and email their tutor and have further tuition hours.

Monica has found a real love of facials and Eileen who is qualified in Advance Clinical, Radio Frequency, Caci & IPL Facials is enjoying the advanced facial massage techniques. With the professional beauty industry constantly evolving, they both found updating and expanding their skills and knowledge really useful. They have enjoyed the learning and would recommend it to others.

Danielle started her career in the professional beauty business as a make-up artist and then decided to continue taking the modular courses to gain her full qualification. She enjoyed the flexible way of working, allowing her to work around client appointments. Danielle loved learning new skills and says that the relaxed and friendly atmosphere with others who were also keen to learn was the best way for her.

Danielle has now progressed to a new job within the industry and has enrolled in the Advanced facial course.
