Welcome to Elite Beauty Academy

Welcome to the Elite Beauty Academy, my name is Wendy Jessop and I have provided training in Weston Super Mare since October 2007. 

Students often tell me how they find it difficult to choose a training provider that will offer them the best options for their individual needs. Here at Elite, we pride ourselves on taking the time to prepare an individual programme ensuring students are on the correct course.  This will provide them with the maximum potential for achieving their goals. Along with a free initial consultation, we offer ongoing support, particularly after the course is finished to make sure students are confident to work with clients.

Lots of people who would like to train often think they may be too old to start a new career - you are never too old is the answer! I have trained both male and female clients ranging from 14 - 83, one lady in particular began her training in her mid 60's and had many happy years working in the Industry.

The tutors here are not only therapists who show you how to give a treatment, we have years of experience within the Industry. Our courses follow the National Occupational Standards (NOS), giving the student the most relevant professional training.  We are all PGCE qualified, experienced assessors, verifiers and examiners and have spent many years teaching in Further Education.

We are very proud to have provided training to owners and their staff of many salons as well as college lecturers wishing to add to their skills.

Elite Beauty Academy is situated at The Courtyard, Towerhead House, Towerhead, Banwell, BS 29 6PQ.  Accredited Training can take place in Salons and Spas for convenience. We also provide training such as Hopi Ear Candles, advanced waxing etc to students in Colleges. Please contact the number below to arrange.
