Her Beauty School ‘The Angel Academy of Teaching and Training’ which was founded in 2003 is featured regularly on high profile TV shows.
My academy is unique, there is nothing similar. Teaching often takes place at a salon or spa, and often in my home with very small class numbers or one to one. I felt that courses should always put the student first and be relative to each student and their own specific needs.
Having had 8 books published she is currently writing her ninth.
I am an IQA (internal quality assurance officer) and our courses with the NVQ/VTCT are similar to a degree level with international recognition. Our students come from all over the world often with English as their second language and they complete their courses successfully every time.
My plans are to launch several more aesthetic beauty courses to my school ‘the angel academy of teaching and training’ that includes botox/fillers, lasers and mesotherapy.
