Glamour and nails

UCOL has got the thumbs up to offer one of only a handful of full time nail technician programmes in the country.

The National Certificate in Beauty Services (Nail Technology) has been introduced as a stand-alone qualification. For the past two years it was imbedded in UCOL’s Beauty Services programme but a change of unit standards has given nail artistry a green light for a fully dedicated course.

There are twenty places available at each of UCOL’s Palmerston North and Wairarapa campuses.

The programme includes manicures, pedicures, acrylic and gel nail application, nail sculpture, 3D nail art, the use of equipment, products and safe operating procedures.

The 27 week programme is taught at UCOL’s own beauty clinic over three days which includes one evening per week.

The clinic is custom designed and fitted to meet industry requirements and international training standards.

As a fully functioning clinic, the students have a professional environment to offer a complete range of nail services to UCOL staff, students and the public during their training.

Associate Head of School of Hospitality and Continuing Education Margot Ferrick says, “There is a heavy emphasis on customer service and hands on experience. When they leave us, our graduates are fully qualified and job ready.”

“We are very excited to be national leaders in this qualification,” says Margot.

UCOL’s Level 3 Nail Technician qualification can lead to the Certificate in Beauty Services Level 4 and the Diploma in Beauty Therapy Level 5.

Enrolments are now open for the programme that starts on 20 February. Visit www.ucol.ac.nz or phone 0800 GO UCOL for more information.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
