Ten years ago Picasso’s Training Academy became a Training Provider for the Local Authority teaching 14-16 learners from various schools around the Wakefield area. The course was designed to give high school students an insight into the Hair and Beauty Industry. Due to the success of this project Susan Tomlinson, the owner of Picassos, made the decision to move the business from the citycentre of Wakefield to Ossett. The new Academy opened in September 2010.
We now offer a variety of courses for all age groups in Hairdressing, Beauty therapy, Nails and Barbering. All courses are accredited by City and Guilds and are internationally recognised qualifications.
Our tutors are dedicated in providing highest standards of instruction in all necessary theory and practical skills. Over the last six years we are proud of the relationships we develop with our learners.
Our aim is that learners have the opportunity to achieve to the highest level ensuring all barriers to learning are removed.
The new state of the art purpose built spacious salon and training academy has given Picasso’s the opportunity to increase numbers of learners and the number of private courses delivered.
Due to the demand of learners wanting to stay on at Picasso’s and have continued progression and continuity in their education we are now able to offer the following courses:
Nail Services Level 2 & 3
Beauty Therapy Level 2 & 3
Hairdressing Level 2 & 3
Barbering Level 2 & 3
All of these courses are currently funded, for more details contact the salon to arrange an interview on 07967 477192
Harrogate College and Yorkshire College Of Beauty
Picassos have formed partnerships with Harrogate College and Yorkshire College of Beauty. This partnership means you can enjoy the benefits and facilities of a large college in addition to those available at Picassos.
Picasso’s are not just a training academy but we also have a working salon offering a variety of beauty and nail services. We have 2 fully qualified beauty therapists working full time and an apprentice therapist. This has proved to be successful, as not only do the clients have free parking, the prices are reflecting the lower overheads however the treatments are still to an extremely high standard. The salon is a separate relaxing environment where clients can enjoy treatments of their choice.
