Open College Network West Midlands Centres: Lifetime learning for all

GroomArts Academy

GroomArts Academy is an accredited training and education centre based in Hertfordshire and has been in operation since 2015, focusing predominately on delivering training to learners who would like a career in the Pet Styling Industry.  Courses they deliver are designed to support learners in their chosen career path and equip them with the skills and knowledge needed to enable them to be successful.
In this case study Ben Cunningham, GroomArts Academy Education Manager, talks about how working with Open College Network has supported their growth and development as a well-respected and leading business in their field.
“Working with the Open College Network has been fantastic because they have the same passion and care that we do. Through delivering their Level 3 Diploma in Dog Grooming, it’s clear that they care about students committing to professional standards that help create a service that stands out”. 
Ben Cunningham (Education Manager, Business Development Executive and SENCO)
Working in such an inspirational environment Ben has been determined to make a difference and raise standards within this Industry. 

GroomArts Academy courses support learners in being able to set up their own businesses.  By setting up the Training Academy their aim is to equip learners who are embarking on a career in the Dog Grooming Industry with high standards and a professional approach necessary to be a commercial Dog Groomer.
By teaching their learners how to be responsible and successful business owners, GroomArts believe that there are two significant points to consider, these being that:

Pets should be fairly treated and offered the best possible treatment we can offer them
The industry needs a better approach to the education of pet stylists, so that they become respected for their depth of knowledge, for their excellent skills, for their attention to detail and their commercial prowess.
“We look forward to a successful working partnership with Open College Network West Midlands and will be looking to expand our choice of accredited Open College Network West Midlands courses in the future.”
Laura Campanella (Styling Director and Head Teacher)
