Beauty students from South West College’ Enniskillen and Dungannon campuses recently travelled to Tenerife to take part in an Erasmus + mobility work placement opportunity. Seven students successfully complete the programme which included placements with Reborn Beauty Salon and Beauty Centre Quiro Royal in the holiday hotspot of Puerto de la Cruz.

The placements were arranged for the students by Fu International Academy in Tenerife and the students worked in the salons 5 days each week during their visit, observing new beauty treatments and processes and comparing the different set ups and treatment application processes between Tenerife and Northern Ireland.

In their down-time the students were able to explore the local area, enjoyed group dining experiences with their peers and colleagues in Tenerife and some much-needed rest and relaxation at the local saltwater pools at Lago Martianez.

Amanda McCabe, Head of School for Tourism, Hospitality, Hair and Beauty said;

‘The trip to Tenerife was a wonderful experience for our students from Dungannon and Enniskillen and highlights once again the opportunities that are available to those students who choose to study locally. The work placements allowed the students to put into practice some of the skills they have learned in a classroom setting while also to observe new treatments and processes that are routinely employed in beauty salons in Tenerife.

We would like to thank the Fu International Academy and the staff from both Reborn Beauty and Beauty Centre Quiro Royal for their professionalism and support throughout the students’ visit and we look forward to a return visit with further students later this year.’
