Success Stories: Mia Cardew, Level 2 Beauty Therapy Apprentice

Mia only started on the Beauty Therapy course with Skills Group in August 2018 but she is already excelling and immersing herself with additional work experience and practice wherever she can. We caught up with Mia to find out more about her story;

“I previously attended Plymouth Studio School and acquired a BTEC Level 3 in Sport. Once I completed, I realised that sport wasn’t quite what I wanted to do as a career. I wanted to find something that made me feel inspired to go to work every day.

I love make-up and beauty products, so I decided to enrol on a Beauty Therapy course. At the same time, I started my course, I also found a job in a salon, Grace and Glamour in Saltash, where I gain invaluable hands-on experience, I get the opportunity to put my skills into practice in a real salon environment.

I am gaining more confidence and have already started building my own clientele and have received a few recommendations from them already, which is an amazing feeling.”

Lindsay Williams, Beauty Assessor at Skills Group says, “Mia is a hardworking and dedicated learner, she will have an extremely successful career within the beauty industry”.

On Mia’s thoughts for the future; “I would like to progress onto Level 3 Beauty Therapy, to gain more advanced knowledge of treatments with a view to owning my own salon one day, in which I would love to combine beauty and sports massage therapy and hopefully a spa!”
