Newsletter – August 2012

Welcome to the Summer 2012 Newsletter from all of us at WSBHT.  It may not have been a great summer weather wise but you have certainly all kept us busy!

Growth
The growth in our courses has been immense, not just with the new courses that we have recently introduced but with the old favorites. We pride ourselves on being able to offer high quality training in small groups sizes, and it is because of that, that we find our classes are becoming increasingly booked up.  If there is a course that you are particularly interested in, please ensure you book early to avoid disappointment.  If courses are fully booked, we always try to meet your needs and put extra classes on if we can.

We have seen a huge increase in students studying VTCT Level 3 Beauty Therapy (massage route).  This exciting course crosses over between beauty therapy and holistics, and is made up of units such as body massage, Indian Head Massage, Pre-blend aromatherapy, Stone Therapy, semi permanent eyelash extensions and female imitate waxing.  Lots of our students studying this are then adding on additional beauty courses so they are real all rounders and able to provide a variety of treatments.  The price for this course is £1500. If you would like more information on this course, you can contact either the beauty or holistic department.

Additions
We are excited to now sell stock within the school.  Such products as massage oil, hair oil, pre-blended oils and hopi ear candles are now available to buy and will hopefully make your life easier.

Another addition that we have introduced is the use of a card reader, so that we are now able to take debit and credit cards.  Please note that if you do use a credit card, there is a small fee of one and a half percent, but our students have told us they are happy to pay this as it means they can spread the cost of courses out over a longer period.   Payment can be made over the phone or in person at the school.  If you do wish to pay at the school, please do contact us first.

Keep the Sun Shining
The popularity of spray tans keeps on growing as more and more people are becoming aware of the dangers of sun damage. Our spray tan courses, priced at just £130 are always very popular and are usually fully booked.  If you would like to book your place, please contact beauty@wsbht.co.uk or call 07767794422.

Response from our Taster Session
A really successful evening was held back in June, where Cherri introduced some therapies that not everyone was familiar with.  EFT, reiki, energy and also meditation and visualization were discussed, which resulted in the next reiki class being fully booked.  There are only two places left on the next reiki course on 14th September, so please contact holistics@wsbht.co.uk or call 07824 337333 to book your place.

New course
We are delighted to announce that we have introduced a new schools Diploma in Nail Technician. This will cover acrylics, gels, silks and fiberglass. This course fee is £640 including all the kits! (We do recommend that you have or start studying for a manicure qualification). We do still offer our Diploma in Nail Enhancements which will cover one system either gels or acrylic. This course fee is still £350 and does include the kit!

The next Nail Technician course starts November 6th. If you would like to book your place, please contact beauty@wsbht.co.uk or call 07767794422.

Employment Opportunities
Newly qualified therapists often only consider the obvious employment opportunities; working in a spa or self employment, but there is huge scope if you look a bit further afield.  There are often opportunities working  abroad or on cruise ships.  All VTCT qualifications are internationally recognised, so your skills will be transferable.  We train many students who are planning to emigrate, as they are able to offer a service that can fit around their lifestyles.  If you are needing a little inspiration for running your business, we offer a distance learning course “Certificate of Competence in Starting your own Business”.  This course is priced at £110 and involves 5 lessons plus a final paper, which covers content such as record keeping, writing a business plan and the types of insurance you may need.  If you would like to enrol on this course, please contact holistics@wsbht.co.uk.

Thank you for your continued support and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and twitter for regular updates.
