What We Offer
At the Southern School of Beauty, we offer intensive, fast track training in beauty, nails and holistic therapies.
Our beauty training courses are perfect for you if you are looking to change career or if you are an existing therapist wishing to add to your skills, as we can help you achieve your goals.
Our intensive courses range between 1 and 3 days. At the end of your course, if successful, you will be awarded our private training school diploma. This will enable you to gain insurance and membership of one of the professional bodies with whom we are accredited such as
The Guild of Beauty Therapists. This membership will provide you with newsletters, advertising and tickets to trade shows plus insurance which means that you can start working and earning - with most self-employed therapists this is anywhere between £20 to £50 an hour.
As we are an accredited VTCT training centre you also have the option to gain the NVQ qualification. This is achieved by successful completion of the initial training followed by a programme of non consecutive days consisting of practice sessions, portfolio building and assessments. See NVQ qualifications for details.
Why Train With Us?
We pride ourselves as being small enough to offer a personal and friendly service, but big enough to provide the
appropriate high standard of facilities necessary, and this is reflected in the fact that over half our business is from repeat bookings.
With a maximum of 6 students (8 on a few courses), you can be sure of plenty of individual help and attention, and because we donít have
any minimum numbers you can also relax in the knowledge that your course will
go ahead, even if you are the only student.

All products and equipment needed for the days courses will be supplied, so you don't need to bring anything but yourself. As we also offer the NVQ
qualification you can rest assured that we have strict guidance and monitoring on our course content from the awarding body, so that if
you do decide to go on to take the further qualification, the training provided will enable you to do this.
We understand that when you first learn a new skill, you will feel nervous and although many students pick up the
techniques very quickly, some will find that after practice, they have some questions or feel they could benefit from a
days troubleshooting, that is why we have practice sessions available for all of the courses we run, so you can come back at a
minimum cost to run through your procedures and fine tune your skills under the watchful eye of one of our student mentors
(see practice sessions for details).
Our Training DVDs
The Southern School of Beauty Therapy are proud to announce the publication of our Swedish Body Massage and our Indian Head Massage training DVDs.
These are ideal aids to students' study and excellent as refresher courses for anybody who has taken the courses in the past.
What Our Students Say About Us
"I am currently looking to change career into the beauty industry and the Southern School of Beauty
is helping me to achieve this. I have already undertaken a number of short courses and find them to be very
thorough and professional, as well as being held in a warm and friendly environment. I would recommend SSBT to
anyone either looking to change career or to enhance their existing skills.
I have found that nothing is too much trouble for Allison and the team at SSBT, compared to other
training centres that I have attended. They are also at the end of the phone to answer any queries and offer a first class service."
