Creating and supporting Holistic & beauty therapists and nail technicians to create and grow careers & businesses.
The organisation was established in 2001 out of frustration at the funding and organisational constraints experienced within Further Education. Louise had a great deal of experience of different organisational structures as well as curriculum management, team leading and teaching on which to base this new organisation. Louise owes further education a great deal for the experience it had given her, and she was determined to ensure that the positive aspects of teaching and learning were maintained at Phoenix whilst enjoying the flexibility to ensure that each learner was offered the sufficient amount of training and personal development they required in order to reach their goals.
Louise initially chose to offer the VRQs rather than the NVQ’s in Beauty Therapy as they are more applicable to training and development away from the workplace and gave the flexibility for training and development rather than the assessment led structure that the NVQ demands.
Initially, the organisation had no funded provision and therefore the courses have been structured in a flexible modular basis to allow learners to take bite-size learning over a period of time whilst ensuring quality of achievement was not compromised. Full qualifications are also offered over daytime (school hours) fast track modules, Saturday School & Evenings.
We currently offer City & Guilds Level 2 & 3 Beauty Therapy & Level 3 Complementary Therapy
Each group has a maximum of 6 learners.
