Welcome to The National School of Aesthetics
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!
Welcome. Haere mai. Testimonials about us and graduate profiles attest to our strong training. 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 3 July 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”.
In the 2017 Beauty NZ awards, approximately 40% of the winners and 26% of the overall finalists are NaSA graduates. The last two Beauty Therapist of the Year winners also are NaSA graduates. Considering we get around 5% of New Zealand’s beauty education funding, our results are excellent.
