Most further education colleges run beauty therapy courses. What makes Champneys College stand out is that we offer qualifications from the industry's leading internationl awarding bodies, CIDESCO, ITEC and CIBTAC. What's more we are the only college within a world renowned spa health spa and we are able to offer guaranteed employment to CIDESCO graduates within Champneys.
A non refundable deposit of 25% of your course fee is due on acceptance of your place. This secures your place. The balance is due six weeks before commencement of the course (four weeks for weekend courses). We don't currently offer payment instalments but we do accept credit card payments which would allow you to manage the repayments over a longer period. We are also registered as a provider for Professional and Career Development Loans. There is full fee information here.
For CIDESCO and ITEC courses two uniforms are purchased at the time of paying the course fees. For the 18 month CIDESCO course one uniform per year is purchased although you have the option to purchase additional ones.
CIDESCO and New Horizons courses require that you purchase a full Body and Beauty kit. This will be invoiced for at enrolment.
Students on Professional Development courses are not required to wear therapist uniform apart from the Post Graduate CIDESCO course. We assume that students will have an appropriate therapist uniform but if not then Champneys Beauty College uniforms are available for purchase.
Champneys Beauty College has a growing range of Professional Development (CPD) courses for qualified, experienced therapists ranging from the Postgraduate CIDESCO to qualifications in teaching and salon management.
The fast track CIDESCO course is taught Monday to Friday 9.30 am - 5.30pm. There are some late night Thursdays and Saturdays during the year which must be attended.
The part time CIDESCO course is taught all day Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. There are also three Saturdays per year.
New Horizons is taught from 9.30am - 2.30am Monday to Friday during school terms.
We also have weekend courses which are generally one weekend a month.
We welcome applications from students at all ages (minimum 16) and levels of experience on all of our courses.
Our New Horizons course is designed with parents in mind as it fits around the school terms and our weekend beauty and weekend massage courses appeal to those wishing to retrain whilst still in their current career.
We offer a level 3 apprenticeship for those between 17 - 24 who already have a level 2 beauty therapy qualification.
