Course was enjoyable but hardly any of it besides skin anatomy is actually used in industry. Communication between teachers could be improved.

Student review
There was good and bad elements. One teacher was fantastic while another was not quite the standard I’d expect. Overall I think it was a good start but still MUCH to learn when out in the industry. Finding a job once leaving was also an issue as there seems to be a oversaturation of beauty workers and all positions needing 5 years previous experiences which I feel we could have been better prepared for.

A lot more in it than what I was expecting, have never struggled to find a job since... the teachers had loads of industry experience and were extremely helpful.
