The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - NEWS - By SI­MON BROUDER

THE beauty ther­apy stu­dents at the Kerry Col­lege of Fur­ther Ed­u­ca­tion got their new term off to an in­ter­est­ing start with a num­ber of well known ex­perts vis­it­ing to pro­vide the learn­ers with some in­side knowl­edge.

A se­ries of work­shops ti­tled ‘Move For­ward to the Pro­fes­sional World of Work’ kicked off the new term at Kerry Col­lege of Fur­ther Ed­u­ca­tion (KCFE) for the beauty ther­apy stu­dents.

One of the main fo­cuses of the course is to en­sure that stu­dents are ready to walk into a job when they se­cure their qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

On Mon­day morn­ing, stu­dents ben­e­fited from the ex­per­tise of Mary O’Don­nell, Beauty Ex­pert and blog­ger and ra­dio and TV per­son­al­ity who spoke to the stu­dents about cus­tomer ser­vice and pro­fes­sion­al­ism in the beauty in­dus­try.

Fol­low­ing on from that Ho­ran’s Health Store linked up with the col­lege and brought in their OPATRA Skin Anal­y­sis Ma­chine for the stu­dents to ex­am­ine.

Nu­tri­tion­ist Sarah Nealan from Eskimo Oils dis­cussed the im­por­tance of fish oils for hair, skin, nails and over­all well-be­ing. John Lalor from Re­vive Ac­tive pro­vided tast­ings, sam­ples and in­for­ma­tion on their beauty com­plex for­mula.

On Tues­day CH Chemist’s make up ex­pert Julie from Lancôme and Jean from Ben­e­fit con­tin­ued to cap­ture the in­ter­est of stu­dents with a lec­ture on the beauty in­dus­try and make up de­mon­stra­tions.

The two-day event was both en­gag­ing and en­light­en­ing. The stu­dents will com­mence their work ex­pe­ri­ence place­ments in the last week in Jan­uary so work­shop events such as these en­sure that stu­dents are fo­cused on in­dus­try needs en­abling them to pro­vide a first class ser­vice to clients
