They're out to pamper you.

PEOPLE in Great Barr will find it even easier to make the most of their appearance and improve their well-being when a newly refurbished beauty salon opens.

The School of Hair, Beauty and Holistic Therapies at the Great Barr campus of Sutton Cold field College now contains a new nail bar and manicure room, massage tables, sauna and spray tanning booth.

Lecturer Louise Lakin said: "Our new salons will enable students to practice treatments on customers in a modern, comfortable environment that will allow our beauty therapy customers to be pampered in a luxurious setting that will rival any spa in the country."

The courses available at the college have also been developed, with an improved range of full and part-time BTEC, NVQ and certificate qualifications available that will enable young people and adult learners to gain new skills and venture into the hair, beauty and well-being industry.

Qualified beauty therapists and hairdressers can be found everywhere from high street salons and department stores to health clubs, leisure resorts, hotels and on cruise ships.

There are also opportunities to work freelance or be self-employed with some professionals working in entertainment and the arts, such as in films and TV, or with fashion designers and photographers.

Courses available at Sutton Cold field and Matthew Boulton Colleges Great Barr campus include the BTEC National Diploma in Beauty Therapy Science, a two-year, fulltime course aimed at students who wish to pursue a career in the beauty therapy and spa industry. Students can study dermatology, facial therapy and massage, as well as communication practices in beauty therapy.

The college also has a number of holistic therapy courses available for adult learners who want to take up a new hobby, learn a new skill or expand their career portfolio.
