“Coming to Trades has been a great opportunity to learn about the whole area of beauty – from how to apply makeup to facials and nail art. I enjoy trying new things and developing my skills”.
For Tatiana, coming to Trades Academy on a Friday has been a big step. She is the only student from her small school taking one of the NMIT Trades courses, so she felt quite nervous at first. “NMIT felt really big to me, but it’s been so good to step outside my comfort zone and make the effort. I’d definitely encourage others to come along and give it a go. I like the work environment here at NMIT. In the Beauty course we do a lot of practical activities and work alongside others. The hands-on work backs up the theory that we do. Our tutor Crystel is amazing. She’s honest and helpful and is good at explaining everything. I now have a much better idea what the beauty industry is all about.”
Tatiana rates her Trades Academy experience as 10 out of 10!
Kitty’s career goal is to become a qualified Beauty Therapist so choosing the Trades Academy programme was an easy decision. The professional environment at NMIT and hands on learning suits Kitty who is taking the opportunity to learn beauty procedures whilst still attending college. She plans to take another step next year and study Beauty full time.
“The tutor is helpful and keeps us on task. She’s always there to support us. She’s intuitive and understanding and finds ways to make learning fun and interesting. We are expected to act and behave like the professional beauticians we aspire to be.”
