Beauty therapy courses, nail technology courses and spa therapy courses: train through the National School of Aesthetics, one of New Zealand's leading beauty schools and the South Island's obvious choice, for a career in these exciting industries!

We offer entry-level beauty therapy courses, like beauty therapy, nail technology, facial therapy, body therapy and electrology, and professional development beauty therapy courses like spa therapies through The National Spa Academy.

In Christchurch since 1985, we remain the South Island's oldest beauty therapy school, offering beauty therapy courses, nail technology courses and spa therapies courses. Owners Noel Turner and Don Kendall, both internationally-qualified beauty therapists, are actively involved here. Registered with CIDESCO and ITEC, we offer the international qualifications industry expects.

We also are NZQA-Registered and considered a Category 1 Provider, with NZQA "highly confident in [our] educational outcomes" and "highly confident in [our] capability in self-assessment". We are 1 of 3 New Zealand tertiary education organisations teaching beauty therapy, and the only South Island based TEO teaching beauty therapy, rated "highly confident" in both areas by NZQA.
