Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School Launches New Scholarship

The Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School has been at the forefront of beauty therapy training in Ireland for over 40 years and is renowned for the quality and professionalism of its students.

The high esteem in which the Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School is held ensures that all graduating students are much sought after by employers within the beauty industry.

It is no surprise that many past pupils have gone on to open highly successful beauty salons and schools, not only in Ireland but also across Europe, USA and as far afield as Australia and New Zealand. Bronwyn Conroy are now once again offering a completely new Beauty Training qualification.

“These combined qualifications offer the student unrivalled opportunities from a career viewpoint and ensure that upon leaving the College they are amongst the most highly qualified Beauty Therapists in the country,” said Anna Keely, Principal of Bronwyn Conroy. “Bronwyn Conroy are continually asked for advanced skin-care therapists by recruiters. 90% of our graduates will enter the workforce immediately after the 10 month programme and for that we are very proud.”

"Salons nationwide are struggling to find fully qualified professional Therapists," added Anna, "the opportunities for students who are willing to study to become a fully Qualified CIDESCO Therapist  are excellent. Our phone rings daily with job offers!"
