SS&L to expand into beauty courses with Frome acquisition

Somerset Skills & Learning (SS&L) is pleased to announce it will be offering beauty qualifications from this summer, after recently purchasing the long established and popular Cloud 9 Beauty Clinic on Palmer Street in Frome.

The beauty clinic re-opened in April and established beauty therapist, Kate Mines, is continuing to provide treatments for new and existing customers. Kate has worked as a beauty therapist for over 25 years.

Alongside Kate, a Beauty Tutor will support the new generation of beauty therapists, who will train for their qualifications whilst having access to a working beauty clinic. The course offer will be released by SS&L in the coming months and Cloud 9 will be used by learners for practical training when not being used by clients.

Kathryn Baker, CEO of SS&L, says “Our purchase of Cloud 9 will enable us to provide experience in a real working environment for our learners, especially as we expand our offer to include beauty courses and qualifications. Kate is a fantastic beauty therapist and it’s a pleasure to welcome her to the SS&L team.”
