The Beauty industry is one of the largest growing industries globally. It is also an industry with endless opportunities to expand as the definition of beauty changes along with technology. Beauty treatments and products are no longer selectively aimed at those in the spotlight or the fairer sex as men, along with the health concious consumer, are increasingly entering the beauty market and moulding the concept of beauty.
Cutting edge technology, a network of professional and revolutionary products and brands that go that extra mile with regards to research, makes this profession one of the most popular and profitable of all time. According to Beauty Therapy Institute Principal from our Sorbet Rivonia branch, Denise Bramdau, the ability to work for yourself and the option of traveling the world in this line of work is one of the reasons that make it a favourite choice of career among our students. However, Beauty Therapists need to stay abreast of the changing trends and new technology which requires continuous education. “There is always a need for self-development and improvement, especially with the constant evolution of this industry,” says Bramdau. Through the reality that many Beauty Therapists are not always able to take time off to study further and sharpen their skills in order to stay abreast of new developments, BTI is closing this gap. They are unique in that they offer flexi-time modules which allow Beauty Therapists and new fledgling students to start courses whenever they are ready, study at their own pace, choose new skills and courses of their own choice, starting at any time of the year.
“I believe that South Africa has a high standard of education within the beauty industry.” Sadly there are Beauty Academies that display deceitful messages in terms of International qualified standards. ITEC and CIDESCO are the most sought after qualifications globally. In order for colleges to offer these qualifications, they are required to meet specific standards and criteria. These compliant campuses will display such registrations in their marketing material and on their websites. You need to tick this off first thing on your quest to find the right college.
The financial costs to attend full 2 or 3 year courses can hinder many students from pursuing a career in beauty. Unlike Universities with bursaries available, the only loans that a student might be eligible for are those from banks, which include hefty interest rates. Taking this into consideration, the Beauty Therapy Institute campuses give students the unique opportunity to study the course of their choice, while only paying for one individual course at a time. Making this an affordable way to study and gain the certificates required, one by one.
