Our mission is to create an environment where therapists nationwide can train and purchase the most advanced beauty courses and equipment currently available.
Choosing the right training provider can be a daunting experience. With so many beauty schools and training academies within the industry, it is a difficult task finding one that offers quality, value, credibility, and support all in the one place. It is important that you fully research your training provider and find the one that is the right fit for you.
Let us start by telling you as much as we can about who we are, what we do and what we stand for…
We have had the pleasure (and misfortune) of partaking in many advanced training courses over the years. From our experiences, we feel we have a grasp on what a professional therapist is looking for in a provider. With this in mind, we set out to build a business that offers quality, excellence, ethics and value from start to finish.
Our purpose is to provide high level and inclusive training to create a community of trusted, knowledgeable and elite therapists.
Our highly qualified educators have vast experience in a full range of treatments. They have a wealth of industry and business knowledge; their mission is to guide you to excel in this vibrant and profitable industry. Each treatment that we train has been carried out successfully within our clinics and the content for each course has been implemented after thorough assessment on results and process.
Your trainer will be qualified in your chosen course and hold an Award in Education and Teaching. We can guarantee that we do not train any treatments that we have no experience or training in.
Our team of professionals are friendly, approachable and have a sense of humour (often better after their first coffee!). You will most often be trained by one of our three founders or a member of our highly skilled team. Take a look at our eclectic bunch here.
During your practical training, we prefer to use the time to dive deep into the treatments, so you have more hands-on experience and walk away feeling confident in your chosen treatment. We use pre-learning material within our training portal for much of the theory so we can ensure you have more valuable treatment time on the day.
Our ethos (or character as we prefer to call it) is full and varied as a business. You could say we are a passionate and ethical crew! Our core values are the basis of our business, which you can read about in our Ethics page.
One of our values is caring for the environment and therefore, we take as many measures as possible to do our part. We are a Green Mark business and we run mainly paperless training centres. This means you will receive online training manuals rather than a printed hard copy. We provide you with an iPad for your practical training day and you are then able to send your notes, photos and videos to yourself via e-mail. You are more than welcome to print the manuals yourself and bring them along.
We strongly believe in using ethical, eco-friendly products and reducing waste. We do not use any skincare products that contravene our ethics. Our Grass Roots Skin® range is vegan, cruelty free, organic and free from parabens. Our packaging is ethically sourced and of course, recyclable.
Our impressive online training portal is full of high-quality learning content, video demonstrations, quizzes and a wealth of information so that you can attend your practical training day with knowledge and confidence.
Our SK3 Training Hub was built specifically for us and designed to make online training simple and effective.
You have lifetime access to your course so you are able to revisit your manual, videos plus the many more files we upload for your ongoing support.
This was always an important aspect for us when it came to accrediting and endorsing our courses. We have personally suffered disappointment when completing a course only to find that the accrediting body was not reputable or traceable and the treatment was not eligible for insurance.
For us, CIBTAC are the leaders in our industry and we are proud to say that they have been the awarding body for all SkinTres courses from the very beginning.
Each course is awarded CPD points through CIBTAC and are fully insurable
For each of our courses, we advise on the recommended prices for each treatment. At the bottom of each page you will find a calculator to show your earning potential and financial recompense for the chosen treatment.
We never encourage low prices, but instead to know your worth and charge accordingly. We train you to be the very best in what you do and believe low budget prices does not represent who you, or SkinTres are as a business.
We believe that your training experience should be stress-free so if you are with us for a full day of training, we provide a delicious lunch, snacks and refreshments. (we are known for our lunches!)
For most courses, you will receive a comprehensive kit so that you can begin treating clients straight away. The details of the kit will be displayed on each course page along with the value.
After training with us, you will be invited to join our Facebook support group where you can connect with other professional therapists, share ideas and ask questions.
We believe in supporting each other to be successful in this diverse sector and improve standards across the industry.
We are available for questions, queries or just advice at any time. Supporting your journey is as important as the training and part of how we base our business.
If you are travelling from overseas and training at our Cheshire location, airport collection is included free of charge.
If staying locally, we provide recommendations to trusted accommodation providers and assistance with transport where possible.
