Expert advice for KCFE’s Beauty Therapy students
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
