The Beauty Course – Ballymun Youthreach
Yvonne Murphy, Beauty Teacher
For some time now the Beauty Programmes offered in Ballymun Youthreach have been a very popular choice for both internal students and those coming from outside the centre. The programmes available are an ideal stepping stone for those who wish to pursue a career within the Beauty Industry. We offer excellent opportunities in training to the highest standard for QQI Level 5 exams in both Cosmetic Studies and Make-Up Application.
Minimum entry requirements for the Beauty Course include a successful Leaving Certificate, Leaving Certificate Applied or full FETAC Level 4. Students must be aged between sixteen and twenty years of age and all entry is subject to interview.
The Beauty Course educates students in both the theoretical and practical side of work. The theoretical side of the programmes offer students a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology, providing an in-depth knowledge of the main structures and functions of the human body, in addition to various areas such as customer care, business, professionalism and hygiene.
The practical side of the courses are ingrained in areas such as facials, make-up application, manicures, tinting and more. We enthusiastically promote in-house training in areas such as Swedish Massage, Spray Tan Application and Waxing. Gel or Acrylic accredited courses are also an option offered by professional companies on site.
Work placement in the industry is also an integral part of the year. This commences following completion of FETAC exams. Also a strong emphasis is placed on group projects and a fine example of this is the continuous success we have in the yearly Style-It Competition. On occasion we invite guest speakers in the industry to deliver an insight into the ever changing world of beauty.
