UCOL is bringing a Cosmetology programme to the Horowhenua for students interested in developing entry-level beauty service skills.

The National Certificate in Beauty Services (Cosmetology) is designed to provide students with the entry level skill set and knowledge needed for employment in the beauty industry. 

The Cosmetology programme, starting 20 August, is one of the upcoming offerings at UCOL’s newly-opened Horowhenua Campus, located at 160 Oxford Street, Levin.   

The campus includes a purpose-built Beauty classroom, equipped with everything students will need to develop their techniques.

During the 14-week programme, students will have the chance to learn how to perform treatments such as manicures and pedicures, as well as cosmetic and make up services. Students will also be taught how to advise clients on selecting and using different beauty products.

Margot Ferrick, UCOL’s Head of the School of Technologies, says UCOL’s Cosmetology programme would be great for those interested in a career in the beauty industry or people who simply want to learn something new and useful. 

“This programme should appeal to anyone interested in getting into the Beauty industry, but also people who want to develop their presentation skills which could help with future opportunities, such as applying for jobs.”  

Students who complete the programme can move onto higher-level Beauty programmes at UCOL’s Palmerston North, Whanganui and Wairarapa Campuses to expand their knowledge.

Other programmes starting at UCOL’s Horowhenua Campus in the coming months include Early Childhood Education (6 August), Building and Construction (8 October), and a free Intermediate Te Reo Māori programme  (17 October).

Applications are now open.  Anyone who is interested can visit the campus between 10am and 3pm Monday to Friday or call 0800 GO UCOL for enquiries. You can apply via UCOL's website www.ucol.ac.nz
