Welcome to Picassos Training Academy


Six years ago Picassos Training Academy became a Training Provider for the Local Authority teaching 14-16 learners from various schools around the Wakefield area. This course is designed to give the students and insight into the Hair and Beauty Industry .Due to the success of this project Susan Tomlinson the owner of Picasso’s made the decision to move the business from the town Centre to Ossett. The new Academy opened in September 2010.

Training Courses

Our tutors are dedicated in providing highest standards of instruction in all necessary theory and practical skills. Over the last six years we are proud of the relationships we develop with our learners.

Our aim is that learners have the opportunity to achieve to the highest level ensuring all barriers to learning are removed.

Second year learners do have the opportunity to offer certain services to clients and this is shown separately on the price list from Picassos.

The new state of the art purpose built spacious Salon and Training Academy has given Picassos the opportunity to increase numbers of learners and the number of private courses delivered.

Due to the demand of learners wanting to stay on at Picassos and have continued progression and continuity in their education. Currently the private courses include Level 1 in Nails Hair and Beauty Level 2-and 3 in Beauty and Nail Services these are for any age group from 16-60.

Picassos is delighted to announce that we also deliver NVQ Level 2 in all areas, for post 16 Learners, and Apprenticeships. This would enable a progression route from Level 1, to Level 2 then onwards to Level 3 in Hairdressing, Beauty Therapy or both.
