Qatar has got its first international beauty academy with the launch of Tajmeel. The academy was launched by the Social Development Centre (SDC), a subsidiary of Qatar Foundation. In her keynote speech at the opening ceremony, SDC general manager Amal al-Mannai said the academy was set up to provide high level training courses in the beauty industry. “Tajmeel will play a vital role in providing solid education and professional qualifications in the beauty field,” she said. Tajmeel’s manager Munther al-Dawood said “Qatar’s first international beauty academy meets a long felt need in the country and the region and will be a centre of excellence providing quality education in the beauty industry and its associated fields.” The academy is managed by a team from the Yorkshire College of Beauty Therapy, he said Tajmeel’s principal Beverly Crowther said the academy’s goal is to raise the industry standard for hair and beauty therapy in Qatar and the region. “People interested in make-up, hairdressing, beauty and spa therapy can further their interests and attain internationally accredited qualifications here in Qatar,” she said. Crowther said the academy offers the highly acclaimed International Therapy Examination Council (ITEC)-certified diplomas and courses, as well as the Qatar International Beauty Academy Diploma (QIBA). “QIBA certificates are awarded for short courses and workshops,” she said. “The academy will also offer postgraduate training courses for those who wish to upgrade their skills in the industry,” she added. Tajmeel has high-tech equipment, IT-enabled lecture rooms, a specialist make-up studio, well-equipped rooms for training and commercial activities. Yorkshire College of Beauty Therapy general manager Joanne Cusworth said the college will use its expertise of over 50 years to deliver the full range of courses at QIBA.
