“The Academy of Clinical Training and Urban Retreat at The Academy believe in providing quality education, beauty training and cosmetic treatments, bringing professional standards and accreditations to our clients and students.”
The fundamental driving criteria behind the creation of ‘The ACT’ were Education, Training, Expertise and Opportunity. The opportunity that was recognised by Directors Kate Berry and Craig McKinnon, along with now Head Trainer and Director of Cosmetology Jennifer Storey, was the lack of high quality and consistently regulated training within the Beauty Industry.
After substantial investment in the highest quality beauty training facility and beauty clinic, along with the bringing together of some of Scotland’s best, experienced and highly educated trainers in the industry, The Academy of Clinical Training opened its doors in December 2017!
The Academy of Clinical Training provides the highest standard of educational, professional and accredited training in a luxury, real salon working environment through our in-house beauty clinic, Urban Retreat at The Academy. The training is accredited by the leading established and recognised regulators in the cosmetic industry, including the Beauty Guild, Habia and VTCT. The standards set by these bodies are raised further by the continual development of our trainer’s own qualifications and standards, ensuring that our students from the Academy will be held in the highest esteem by clients and professional employers within the beauty industry.
“What can I say. Absolutely stunning salon with a lovely, chilled atmosphere! All the staff are so bubbly but also down to earth and easy to talk to. Most importantly, every single treatment I have had has been 5 star, exactly what I asked for & wanted! Never left disappointed yet, wouldn’t go anywhere else!”
