many of our past pupils have gone on to open highly successful beauty salons and beauty schools not only in Ireland but also across Europe, USA and as far afield as Australia and New Zealand.Our College is focused on producing Therapists who are ready for the workplace, not requiring further training or work experience.  We do this by providing an opportunity for our students to “work” in a full commercial Salon environment. This is not an option but a compulsory part of our course.  We now know from experience that this works.  The student gains invaluable work- experience and confidence for over 7 months of the 10-month course.

This is an unrivalled commercial experience that the Bronwyn Conroy College offer and has resulted in the development of many new commercial relationships with recruitment companies, Salons, Hotels and Spa’s throughout the Country requesting our students.  This guarantee of career opportunities is the result of the excellent training and consistently high standards that we deliver.

This is not an easy course, it is highly demanding and it is only when the student starts the course that they realise how challenging it can be.  It is for this reason that we insist on meeting with anyone who is interested in enrolling to ensure that this is the right choice for them. Our Tutors have all gained many years of commercial experience and in some cases are still working in the industry. This ensures that the teaching is up-to-date and fresh.
Please read through the following for all the Initial information about our course.  If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us at the school, ideally make an appointment to come and visit us and see for yourself. I am sure there are many questions to be answered before you decide to set out on what we believe is one of the most interesting and rewarding careers of all.
