CORPORATE VISION / Canadian Business Awards 2020 17 , Dec19133 Best Hair & Beauty Training Organization - Ontario Hair today, gone tomorrow – training the next generations of stylists andmake-up artists in their essential arts is a huge responsibility, and one that falls to the talented team at The Beauty Academy - Ottawa School of Beauty Ltd. Passing on years of knowledge and expertise, these educators ensure that a robust learning environment is created where students can practice their art. We wondered what we could learn from them in the light of their award-winning success. Spread over three campuses in Ontario, The Beauty Academy has made its name in providing outstanding educational facilities. Delivering Diploma and Certificate programs for hair stylists, medical Esthetics, SPA Esthetics and make-up artists, this company ensures that every student that passes through its doors is perfectly equipped for a career in the Beauty Industry. While making a point of spending time on classroom theory, the Beauty Academy doesn’t just deliver a theoretical approach to the hair and esthetics business. Through local businesses, educators focus on finding ways to practically apply the skills that need to be learned. Thanks to cultivating partnerships with professional organizations, the Beauty Academy has easier access to the new trends that are being adopted by leading industry artists. The result is a strong and positive learning environment that delivers effective results. While many academies struggle to be economically viable thanks to reduced student enrolment, the Beauty Academy bucks this trend. The demand for more spaces has resulted in expansion of the London campus to match the demand for hair stylists, while its multiple locations allows students from different areas convenient access to training. When a course is finished, salons and SPAs are delighted to take on high-quality, certified staff. The role of the instructors at the Beauty Academy is essential, with amazing instructors who are leaders in their particular fields. A low student-to-teacher ratio means that students can be sure of getting useful attention. This more bespoke approach to education prepares them more thoroughly for future careers in the industry and is one of the reasons behind the Beauty Academy’s superb employment rate. At the end of the day, this is the primary focus of everyone involved in the Beauty Academy. Regardless of their area of expertise, the team always aim to deliver the best graduates in the industry, as well as helping them to find jobs afterwards. Because of the instructor’s close ties with various commercial providers, they are able to help graduates to secure jobs when their courses are complete. Ottawa has proven to be an ideal place for the Beauty Academy, with plenty of opportunities for its students to find employment. The success of the Beauty Academy has led to a demand for more variety in the learning experience. Currently, the team are investing in technological solutions to create a robust learning environment. This will be made of instructional tutorials, as well as personal assists in order to re-enforce skills and quality consistency. Similarly, the Beauty Academy is investing in a Student Portal in order to allow students easier access to common information. This will include progress reports, examination results, the hours of their course completed and a knowledge base. In many ways, the success of the Beauty Academy is shown through its consistent results. While the methods are friendly and clearly effective, the most rewarding aspect for these educators is how many of its students find gainful employment shortly afterwards. This is a place where graduates do not just learn their trade, but leave prepared to succeed and make their own mark on a fascinating industry.
