Coalville's Stephenson College has been awarded a College of Excellence 2019 by the UK's leading spa, Ragdale Hall.

The College's website says it is in recognition of outstanding practice and standards within beauty therapy training.

The Award confirms that Stephenson College has consistently demonstrated high standards of training, a good or outstanding Ofsted report and continually collaborates with Ragdale Hall Spa to offer students work experience and enhance employment opportunities.

Jane Harwood-Scott, Section Head for Professional Care Industries, said: "This is a fantastic achievement for the College and demonstrates our commitment to delivering a high standard of training to our students enabling them to become outstanding beauty therapists that are in demand not just locally but internationally."

Based in Leicestershire, Ragdale Hall Spa is an award-winning privately-owned spa resort, renowned for its outstanding facilities – including Rooftop Infinity Pool – and exceptional customer service. It has one of the most comprehensive selections of spa treatments available anywhere in the UK and employs around 140 Beauty Therapists.

Ragdale Hall Spa works with a number of colleges to inspire students to excel in careers within the beauty industry. Colleges benefit from a career presentation, work experience and work placements for students, open evenings and treatment demonstrations at Ragdale Hall.

Gemma Jackson, Ragdale Hall Spa Recruitment Supervisor, said: "We have a well-established relationship with Stephenson College Beauty department, and some of the college's beauty therapy students will progress and work with us after they have qualified as Beauty Therapists.

"Each year we visit the College to carry out a career presentation and evaluate the skills of students who would like a week-long work placement with us – a valuable opportunity to experience one of the UK's busiest and most highly regarded spa beauty environments."

Importantly, only an approved College of Excellence can enter their carefully chosen students into the annual Ragdale Hall Student of Excellence competition, which offers an unprecedented package of employment and training with Ragdale Hall, plus other benefits, to the winner and selected runners up.

Colleges are reviewed annually and must continue to meet Ragdale Hall Spa's standards in order to maintain their College of Excellence status.
