A cut above the rest, Formul’A Academy is set to launch another training opportunity to cater to hair and beauty professionals in the UAE.
The City & Guilds VRQ Level 3 Diploma is an internationally accredited qualification, which provides advanced training for hair and beauty professionals looking to progress on to managerial roles within the industry.
Formul’A Academy General Manager, Valarie Reynaert said the decision to add another feather in the training provider’s cap came as a result of the industry’s demand for highly skilled hair and beauty professionals at all stages of their careers.
“The UAE is home to a significant number of hair and beauty salons, however professional development can be a real challenge for business owners. Up-skilling the current workforce rather than recruiting abroad is a win-win for both the staff and the business owners. Owners save on recruitment costs and their staff progress in their careers. At the Academy we provide end-to-end training to support this transition.”
Formul’A Academy will launch the City & Guilds VRQ Level 3 Diploma course this month. The diploma comprises a 12-week intensive training, with seven core modules including competencies in salon management, cash flow management and customer service, as well as advanced technical skills such as colorimetry, perming, cutting and styling at an expert level.
The diploma provides Academy students with the opportunity to progress onto higher training. The Academy’s VRQ Level 2 graduates are now able to staircase into the diploma, opening the door to higher learning and broader employment opportunities. Diploma graduates can progress to be appointed as senior stylists, salon managers or become business savvy freelance hairdressers.
Formul’A Academy is a Dubai based institution. The Academy advocates the need for a more consistent, high standard of service across the spectrum of beauty spa providers in the Emirates. With dedicated classrooms, experienced trainers and an on-site salon, the academy offers students a real-life learning environment to perfect their skills.
