The Shine Academy

At the Shine Academy we offer first-class training for people who wish to gain the knowledge and skills necessary for a career in image consultancy or one of its related areas.  We pride ourselves on creating a relaxed, friendly environment in which to learn, without compromising our high standards of professionalism.

As a Registered Training Provider of The Federation of Image Consultants, the syllabus for our Foundation Modules in the four core subjects cover the competencies for the Masters Award in Image Consultancy.

Image Consulting as a Career

Image Consultancy is a fast-growing sector, with opportunities for skilled, knowledgeable professionals who enjoy working with people from all walks of life.   Most image consultants run their own business which provides considerable flexibility.   Many focus on creating full-time image practices, some work part-time to accommodate other commitments, whilst others combine image with other professional skills such as coaching, management consultancy, retail or hairdressing.

Image Consultancy and the Credit Crunch

Of course we don’t have a crystal ball, but all the indications are that image consultancy is becoming an essential, rather than a luxury, especially for those people and companies competing for jobs, clients and contracts, or just trying to cling on to the job they’ve got.  People who train now for a new career, or to add an additional image element to an existing one, are the ones who will be in the right place to hit the ground running when the economic climate starts to improve.
