The Col­lege of Excel­lence’ award recog­nis­es providers that deliv­er hair and beau­ty cours­es to a con­sis­tent­ly high stan­dard, help­ing stu­dents to gain the qual­i­fi­ca­tions and indus­try expe­ri­ence they need to pur­sue suc­cess­ful future careers. 

As a recip­i­ent of the award, Not­ting­ham Col­lege stu­dents will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to attend exclu­sive careers events such as open evenings and treat­ment demon­stra­tions as well as have the chance to apply for pres­ti­gious work place­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties with Rag­dale Hall.

Hol­ly Bowen, who com­plet­ed her Lev­el 2 and 3 Beau­ty Ther­a­py with us in June of this year now works as a Beau­ty Ther­a­pist at Rag­dale Hall. She tells us why she chose Not­ting­ham Col­lege and how her course pre­pared her for her future career.



I chose to study at Not­ting­ham Col­lege as I knew it would be the best place for me to gain the skills I’d need to suc­ceed in my cho­sen career. I love every­thing to do with skin­care and my favourite thing about my course was being taught how to per­form facial treat­ments with spe­cial­ist elec­tri­cal machines. 

My tutors were extreme­ly com­mit­ted and would go above and beyond to sup­port us as stu­dents to ensure that we achieved our goals.

Hol­ly explains how, even before she start­ed her course, her goal was to work at Rag­dale Hall and the fact the col­lege has repeat­ed­ly been award­ed a Col­lege of Excel­lence’ helped her to achieve this.

Before I start­ed my course I knew my end goal once trained was to work at Rag­dale Hall Spa. As Not­ting­ham Col­lege are one of Rag­dale Hall Spa’s Col­leges of Excel­lence, this meant the train­ing I received would give me the skills and qual­i­fi­ca­tions to be able to apply for a job there.”

Since fin­ish­ing her course, Hol­ly has achieved her goal but is con­tin­u­ing to learn new skills and con­tin­ue her train­ing further.

I am now work­ing at Rag­dale Hall Spa, per­form­ing lev­el 2 and lev­el 3 treat­ments using a vari­ety of dif­fer­ent prod­ucts includ­ing Clar­ins, Elemis, OPI and Spa Find. I will also soon be pro­gress­ing onto a 2‑year train­ing pro­gramme which dur­ing this time will enable me to be trained in many spe­cialised treatments.”
