Welcome from Dr. Noel Turner, Our Chief Executive Officer
A warm welcome from the Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of the National School of Aesthetics
Our Chief Executive Officer and co-owner, Dr. Noel Turner, welcomes all prospective students and discusses The National School of Aesthetics and our achievements and successes with you.
Dear prospective student,
Thank you for your interest in launching your beauty career with NaSA: The National School of Aesthetics.
When Don Kendall and I originally set up The National School of Aesthetics in 1985, it was because of a determination we had to provide an alternative Beauty Therapy school in Christchurch which would provide students with high quality training offering some of the finest qualifications in the world.
Now, over 30 years later we have proven our ability to do just that and we are proud of our affiliations with CIDESCO and ITEC – the industry recognised standards. We have grown from a two-room teaching facility in the suburbs to a point where we now occupy our own 1,200 square meter building on the edge of the CBD. The school is comfortable and airy, comprising of 20 rooms offering classrooms, offices, the Great Hall and additionally a large Multimedia Suite.
To gain a fully recognised qualification in beauty therapies requires dedication and application. There is a great deal to learn about the accepted methods of applying various therapies in order to correct problems as opposed to simply camouflaging them. This requires studies in physics, anatomy and physiology, chemistry and other subjects which might be less obvious such as clinic administration.
The National School of Aesthetics is proud to have established an enviable record amongst the beauty industry which sees the majority of beauty therapy clinics and spas seeking only graduates from our school and they heartily recommend the school to people enquiring about where they might obtain the best qualifications.
We have a dedicated team who are constantly striving to help you to become the best you possibly can and great care is taken administering our courses to ensure that they are completely up-to-date and meeting or exceeding the standards dictated by our governing bodies.
In 1987 I too embarked on a course to qualify in beauty therapy. It became a turning point in my life and my subsequent qualification has allowed me to travel, lecture and demonstrate internationally and nationally. The work is challenging, constantly changing but always rewarding.
I look forward to welcoming you into our school and promise that all of us here at The National School of Aesthetics will to our utmost to guide and support you as you strive to become a member of the family of thousands of National School of Aesthetics graduates.
