Guaranteed employment for CIDESCO students


Champneys College is now in its 37th successful year, offering Beauty Therapy training.

The health and leisure industry is now and will continue to be a growth area, with many avenues to explore and having listened to feedback and concerns from parents and past students, we recognise that applicants may be anxious, in this current challenging economic climate, that graduates may have difficulty in finding the right employment opportunities.


In recognising this, Champneys offer to guarantee CIDESCO students the 600 hours employment required to obtain the full CIDESCO diploma.  The opportunity will be available in the Champneys Resorts and Day Spas and will further assist and benefit graduates in their continuing career path. Successful graduates will be offered employment over a 6 month period.  Graduates will need to be recommended by Champneys College and have achieved a satisfactory level of customer care, attendance, timekeeping, attitude and appearance standards. A degree of flexibility is required in your location choice and working patterns.


Course fees are all inclusive - no extra costs!
