The Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School has been at the forefront of beauty therapy training in Ireland since 1972 and is renowned for the quality and professionalism of its students. The high esteem in which the Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School is held ensures that our students are much sought after by employers even before graduation and it is no surprise that many of our past pupils have gone on to open highly successful beauty salons and beauty schools not only in Ireland but also across Europe, USA and as far afield as Australia and New Zealand. Our full time Beauty Therapy Course offers qualifications with the worlds major accreditation authorities in Aesthetics and Beauty Therapy including CIDESCO, CIBTAC, ITEC, BABTAC and VTCT.
Our College is focused on producing Therapists who are ready for the work-place, not requiring further training or work experience. We do this by providing an opportunity for our students to “work” in a full commercial salon environment from month two of the course. This is not an option but a compulsory part of our course. This commercial experience coupled with training with the worlds Industry Leading Brands has proven to be a formula for success in securing employment and ensuring our students are confident and industry ready upon graduation. This guarantee of career opportunities with leading Salons, Spas and 5 Star Hotels is the result of the excellent training and consistently high standards that we deliver. We leverage our relationships with the these leading Brands and Employers to ensure our students receive an unrivaled study experience and job opportunities. Our Students train with
