At Carlton Institute we believe that high professional standards delivered by well trained personnel build your reputation and ensure repeat customer visits.
Our sole aim is to help you provide professional standards by giving you access to affordable courses that are delivered by qualified experienced personnel. Our courses lead to a verified standard that you can rely on with external independent accreditation.
The Carlton Institute is the leader and pioneer in providing fast track accredited recognised qualifications in beauty, nail and spa therapy courses catering for the whole range of personnel from beginners to experienced therapists and managers. The qualified teachers focus the courses on the techniques and knowledge needed to perform the task and the content is not brand specific.
The Carlton Institute is not an ‘add on' to a spa or salon business, our sole focus is to provide fast track expert training to help you improve your business results.
About our courses
2012 will see us celebrate 20 years within the beauty training industry, having trained over 30,000 students from across the world. All our courses are modular, typically 1-5 days, and lead to a diploma or a recognised qualification from NVQ/IHBC/IIHT accredited by VTCT or BABTAC.
Our relationship with our students doesn't finish at the end of a course, we provide ongoing support by phone and email to help students maximise their investment in their performance.
We will also be introducing NEW training programmes for all aspects of the management of a spa or salon business. Courses will be designed for a range of specific needs - whether as a sole owner, a department manager, a club or hotel spa, the HR and training team in a multiple or the directors who want to improve performance and achieve a return on the funds invested (ROCE).
About our training
All courses are taught by experienced and qualified tutors and lecturers. We employ senior tutors who have operated in or run a spa or a salon with a team and have at least 5 years experience. We use specialists for specific courses - retailers for retailing, marketing experts for marketing but the key disciplines are taught by lecturers with qualifications for teaching spa and beauty therapy.
We are privileged to be able to draw on the wide experience of our people who have set up individual salons and spas from scratch, through to running operations employing over 500 therapists in 3 countries over more than 40 sites.
Carlton Institute is involved at all levels of our industry with representation on the Board of Habia (the UK standard setting body for our industry) and on the Spa Business Association (the leading UK & Ireland trade association for the Spa Industry). We look forward to helping you and your people meet the needs of your spa or beauty business no matter how large or small.
