Isa Carstens Academy offers a comprehensive academic diploma course in somatology for students who would like to pursue a professional career in the beauty industry.

One of the best things you can do if you are interested in this field is to invest in training that can open doors for you locally and internationally.

Isa Carstens Academy would like to give young people the best chance for a successful future and therefore offers a holistic and in-depth practical and academic course.

Beauty can be an exciting career choice

In the past, there were not many options for young people in the beauty industry to consider and the profession mainly focused on beauty treatments that took care of the client's basic grooming and appearance.

Fortunately, the industry has also grown and the focus is now not only on practical training, but also on academia and theory, including business management subjects to encourage entrepreneurship.

Depending on the student's qualification, there is a wide variety of jobs to choose from, ranging from reception and management to therapists specializing in specific treatments.

What career options are available?

If you want to be a full-fledged beauty therapist, a comprehensive course - such as the NQF 6 diploma in somatology - is the best choice. It offers a holistic and scientific approach to beauty and health to get the best results with treatments.

Students also get 600 hours of practical work experience to hone their skills, so that they can be an asset to any salon, spa, passenger ship or skin care clinic.

Skin care is the most popular choice as a specialist field and is complemented by an advanced diploma in skin aesthetics at NQF 7. This helps students to expand their knowledge of skin care and technology for when they work with doctors in the aesthetic industry.

An online six-month course in salon and spa management, which is internationally recognized, is also available to refresh existing therapists' business skills or help entrepreneurs enter the market.

Make an informed decision

Isa Carstens Academy has branches in Stellenbosch and Pretoria. To make sure that you make the right choice for your future, an open day will be held on 9 October 2021 on both campuses.
