Beauty therapist Danielle Jones, from Wrexham, learned on the job when she took an apprenticeship in VTCT Level 3 Beauty Therapy Massage at the International School of Beauty Therapy in Crewe. Now she’s off to work in luxury spas in Ibiza!
The 23-year-old said: “It’s something I’ve always been interested in and I took my Level 2 through them. I was able to study from my place of work, the DoubleTree in Chester. At first I did courses one day a week, then it was one day per month, so it was absolutely fine.
“I learned a lot and the staff made each lesson really enjoyable – I’d definitely recommend the International School of Beauty Therapy and taking the apprenticeship route, as you can learn on the job and you’re pretty much guaranteed a job at the end of it.”
Danielle will soon be jetting off to sunny Ibiza for six months to work in spas in various hotels, where she will be offering nail treatments, facials and a number of massage treatments. She said: “I’m really looking forward to it and I’d also be interested in taking other courses in the future.”
