What our graduates say

"I’ve recently finished my Level 3 Beauty Therapy apprenticeship and I couldn’t recommend IBHA enough! All the staff are lovely and they're always at the end of the phone if you need support with anything. They have so many additional courses that all the students have the opportunity to take. Jodi and Julie have been amazing and have helped me so much with my self confidence whilst performing a treatment and talking to clients." May 2018
