Beauty Therapy students at York College used their skills to raise funds for Children In Need, offering manicures and nail painting, eyebrow shaping, make-up lessons and Indian head massage to staff, students and visitors.
Student Millie Dodds (previously from Scalby School) travels from Scarborough to York College three days a week to learn Beauty Therapy. Millie has progressed from Level 2 to Level 3 and, like all her classmates, also has a part time job in the beauty industry: “I work at Body Concepts in Scarborough and would like to be a salon owner myself one day. I’m pleased to be able to use my talents to fundraise for Children In Need. When I see children on the television going through difficult times because of illness or personal circumstances, it makes me so sad – this is the very least I can do to try and support them.”
Level 3 Beauty Therapy students study a full range of beauty treatments. On completion of their course they can look forward to following in the footsteps of previous students who are employed in salons, spas, as mobile therapists or have their own businesses, some are even working on cruise liners! Some students may decide to progress onto Higher Education courses, such as the Foundation Degree /BA (Hons) Media Make-up, Special Effects & Hair Design courses offered at York College.
The total raised by Beauty Therapy students for Children in Need was £76.18.
