Hand Picked Spa Academy

We are proud to offer our popular two-year Beauty Therapist Apprenticeship programme in partnership with renowned national beauty apprenticeship provider Armonia Training Academy.

This successful scheme allows aspiring spa beauty therapists to earn and learn in one of our beautiful hotel spas while gaining invaluable qualifications and experience. 


The programme is designed to attract apprentice spa therapists with the opportunity to work towards a national qualification while experiencing real life in one of our 10 luxury spas. 

The initiative aims to give spa therapists the very best skills, inspiring them to create longevity in their own careers while encouraging promotion within the company.

The Spa Academy’s key aims are to:

  • • Attract the very best talent directly to Hand Picked Hotels.
  • • Provide a scheme with a key focus on wellbeing.
  • • Give our therapists a programme to furnish them with the very best skills.
  • • Create a unique learning environment and development programme that is inspiring and creative.
  • • Build a strong relationship between Hand Picked Hotels and our apprentices, embedding employer values and creating employee loyalty.
  • • Create a career path to suit ambitious young therapists while encouraging them to build their experience within Hand Picked Hotels.

Hand Picked Hotels works in partnership with Armonia Training Academy, who help us to train and guide our apprentices with regular offsite training, one-to-one communication, help and advice.

Every spa apprentice is allocated a mentor within the spa team whose role is to provide additional supervision and support each apprentice’s learning and development.

The apprenticeship’s duration is 24 months, starting in Year one with a Level 2 qualification followed by the Level 3 qualification in Year two. The Apprenticeship programme includes off-site training, so independent travel will be required. Travel will be paid and accommodation is provided and paid for by the company.
