Anna Harrison

Beauty Therapy Lecturer

I have a great passion for the industry and a thirst for self-development. I still work at the 4* Spa where I meet and treat clients from around the world and at the Beauty & Aesthetic salon in Kendal where I provide treatments to local customers.

The spectrum of the clientele and a variety of services keeps me abreast of the latest industry developments, trends, client needs and also employers’ expectations. This experience enables me to provide the essential training for our students (Level 1 up to Level 4), and to assist them in developing the necessary skills needed to embark on a glowing career within the beauty industry.
