Testimonial

After leaving school almost 20 years ago, it felt slightly daunting to make the decision to return to education, especially now that I had 3 young children. However, I felt it was time to do something for myself. I was always interested in the Beauty Industry so decided to do a Nail Course. Through a few friends’ recommendations, I decided to enrol for the Nail Technology Course at BFEI. It was a challenge to return as a mature student, but I knew from the first day I had made the right decision. The support and encouragement from my Tutors was second to none and it has been life changing for me. It has given me my confidence back, as well as so many qualifications to get me started in my new career. I have also made lifelong friends. I cannot recommend BFEI enough for anybody that is thinking about returning to education.
