Maureen Blackman, owner of East Anglian Beauty Training, studied beauty therapy for two years immediately after leaving school, gaining national and international diplomas in facial and body work, and electrolysis. Since then, she has continued to work within the industry as a therapist and tutor, keen to broaden and develop her skills in any new techniques and related therapies. Following redundancy from City College Norwich in 2011, after teaching there in part-time, full-time and senior lecturer roles, she was asked to write educational books, learning materials and student resources for different distance-learning colleges, and also tutor online for them. This was a new challenge for her, and demonstrates how wide and diverse the beauty industry is for employment and career choices.

East Anglian Beauty Training gave her an opportunity to continue to use her skills and knowledge in the teaching role that she loves. Working with both complete beginners and advanced-level therapists is indeed a real pleasure for her. She is an Internal Verifier for City & Guilds and VTCT, the largest Awarding Bodies for beauty, holistic and related qualifications, which keeps her up to date with new developments, course contents and standards.This allows her to adapt all EABT qualifications accordingly, so students can be reassured the tutoring they receive is industry compliant and fully up-to-date.

With a friend and past work colleague she developed Flambéssage, a range of massage candles, oils and balms that are used in fabulous face and body treatment rituals, but can actually be incorporated into any face, body and hair treatments to add another dimension.

In 2019, Maureen was joined by her daughter Roxanne into the business, to help with the ever-increasing demand for training; on-site, spa/salon training is also available. Katie Yarham is an essential team member who provides training in Gorleston for East Anglian Beauty Training.

East Anglian Beauty Training aim to provide you with affordable, flexible access to whatever it is you wish to study and train for.
