Joanne Middleton (Principal)
On completion of my HNC in Beauty Therapy Management and NVQ in Beauty I set up my own salon in York with the help of the Prince”™s Trust. I was one of the first people to be set up on the new scheme and MP Hugh Bailey and The Minister of Education opened my salon!
I built up my client base whilst continuing to study Holistic’s and Teaching Certificates. I also worked as an educator for Belle SantÃ©. I fell pregnant with my daughter and the salon owner sold the shop so I went mobile whilst also working freelance as an educator for Salon Systems for 2 years, before creating and having approved my own courses and workshops.
I progressed by opening my own private VTCT School for 2 years and gained my A1 and A2 Assessors Awards before falling pregnant with my second son! I decided not to renew the lease and have continued to offer treatments and Guild accreditted short courses and practising as a therapist and make up artist in York, mobile and from rooms in York at Pamper You and from Stockton on the forest.
