IN need of a career change? ACL Essex launches new hair and beauty courses to boost Essex entrepreneurial spirit.
Adult learning provider, ACL Essex, is launching new hair and beauty courses to support entrepreneurial residents of Essex into the industry.
Learners will have the chance to gain hands-on experience working in the salons at ACL Essex centres, as well as receive advice and guidance on how to progress in the hair and beauty industry from expert tutors who have many years of experience under their belts.
A variety of hair and beauty courses are available, including Hairdressing, Barbering and Beauty Therapy qualifications.
Lisa Jarentowski, ACL Essex Principal said: “We are delighted to offer hair and beauty courses at our ACL centres. Essex residents have long been known for their entrepreneurial spirit, and we are proud to provide courses that could help our residents develop their skills in this industry and eventually open their own business.”
She continued: “We cover a range of areas on our courses, including hairdressing, barbering and beauty and complimentary therapies. There’s something for everyone, so why not get in touch with your nearest ACL Essex centre and see what there is for you?”
One learner who found an ACL Essex beauty course useful was Stacey Johnson from Basildon.
Having suddenly and unexpectedly lost her husband to cancer in 2021, Stacey felt it was time for a career change, so she came away from her retail job and enrolled on a Beauty Therapy Level 2 course at ACL. She said: “I have always been interested in Beauty Therapy, and I found that ACL had sessions that could work around my family. This was a completely new skill for me to learn, but my tutor was excellent at explaining the theory and showing how to carry out the practical skills.”
She continued: “Now that I have completed my Level 2, I have secured a job at Bannatyne’s spa, and I am already enrolled onto Beauty Therapy Level 3 to continue my new skills and training. I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to change careers in my thirties, and it has really helped me see that it’s never too late to make a change.”
There are ongoing start dates for the hair and beauty courses, from November running into 2023, and the courses will run at various ACL centres across Essex. For some, they could be fully funded*.
