Alternative Education Provision


At The Beauty Project, we provide an innovative educational experience tailored to two distinct age groups: young people aged 11 to 17 and those aged 18 to 25 with an EHCP, with groups organised by age for optimal learning environments.


Our educational approach is firmly rooted in a child-centric ethos, offering a spectrum of learning options ranging from fundamental skills to industry-recognised accredited course qualifications.


Additionally, our in-house operational salon serves as a hands-on training ground for our learners, enabling them to build practical experience to enhance their CVs.


Currently, our courses for young people are available as optional 1-2 day sessions, spanning a 13-week duration to achieve industry-recognised certification, However, we remain flexible in adjusting the course structure to accommodate individual student needs.


What sets us apart is our unwavering commitment to a person-centered approach to learning. We prioritise the unique needs and aspirations of each student, and our extensive array of courses is widely respected within the hair and beauty industry.

This ensures that our students receive training and education that is both highly regarded and directly applicable to their chosen career paths.

Extended Support

The Beauty Project understand that individuals have their own learning requirements. Our training courses are tailored to each individual, with traditional time constraints removed from the programme(s). Students are able to learn at their own pace in a learning supported environment; with additional 1-2-1 support provided where required. 

Therapeutic Approach 

All operational staff at The Beauty Project are trained in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI). One of the main considerations of TCI is to reduce the stress of a situation; in this case learning. A second consideration is to teach the student coping skills that can be used to replace negative or unwanted behaviours and responses to stressful situations and negative emotions. 








Here at The Beauty Project we offer an extensive variety of courses that cover all aspects of Beauty Therapy and Hairdressing. We also offer access to extended learning pathways via apprenticeships and fully accredited courses.

Professional Team

The Beauty Project continually invest in employee training to ensure staff are fully equip to manage varying student requirements, enabling the team to provide appropriate and individually targeted training; inclusive of training in regard to industry-based examinations.
