G.C.S.E Results one week on..................

On Monday 21st August 2017 we welcomed our new Apprenticeship students to the Yorkshire College of Beauty for their first day of a two year apprenticeship.  First days are always daunting but we aim to make the day about them. Our students all received their new uniforms as well as taking delivery of their beauty kits which include all they require to carry out Level 2 and 3 beauty treatments. 

During induction we focus on the importance of the course, what makes a good therapist, what they will be learning and above all the standards that we expect from all of our students regarding practical training, presentation and health and safety whilst in college.

We wish them all the best and hope they enjoy the course as much as we enjoy delivering it!

Another incredibly successful year has come to an end at The Yorkshire College of Beauty.We hope that all of our guests had an amazing evening, we definitely did!  Our students should be very proud of what they have achieved throughout their studies at The Yorkshire College of Beauty. We would like to say a huge well done to everyone who graduated, our very special award winners, family and friends who have supported our graduates through their training and of course all of the staff at The Yorkshire College of Beauty who allow this all to happen. 

Thank you and well done!

Leeds Fashion Ball 2015 

On 7th May 2015 we attended Leeds Fashion Ball at The Royal Armouries with four students to apply make-up to the catwalk models. We were extremely proud of our students for the work they produced. It was an extremely successful and busy evening which gave them a real insight into the make-up artist industry. 

We already can't wait for Leeds Fashion Week in October.
