  • I have thoroughly enjoyed the elite NVQ level 2 in Windsor. I feel I've gained confidence, not only in my skills, but also in knowing that I now have the understanding and knowledge that is required to be a successful therapist. As part of my course I was offered a placement at Bannytne Spa, which gave me invaluable work experience in the industry. The Spa have since offered me employment, which is absolutely fantastic! This is the perfect course for anyone hoping to start a career in Beauty. Chloe
  • The service provided by the Carlton Institute was excellent from my initial enquiry through to final assessment and receipt of my certificate. I would particularly like to praise my course instructor Jane. She was highly knowledgeable, friendly and approachable, and had good teaching skills. My experience with the CI was significantly better than another local training provider with whom I had previously taken a course. I plan to take further training with you in the future and would def recommend. Lorraine
  • Please pass on my thanks to Helen for an excellent UV Gel nail course in Exmouth.
