About Us

The Academy History

Debut Training Academy was formed in 2005 operating from Wickford high street. Debut Academy offers NVQ Qualifications in Beauty, Massage and Nails as well as short courses in all areas of nail and beauty. We provide training for between 150 and 250 students per year, made up of differing ages, abilities, ethnic backgrounds and genders.

Debut prides itself in that fact that we have an established team of dedicated Assessors, encompassing over 50 years’ experience. The knowledge and lifelong experience afforded by our Assessor’s is invaluable, which undoubtedly offers our learners all important future life skills.

Debut Academy has placed over 250 students into employment positions locally. Debut is fortunate to be recognised by manufacturing brands such as Entity, Lash FX, Nail Harmony and Gelish and is also able to offer Diploma certificates which are also Insurance or HABIA (Hair and Beauty Industry Authority) recognised. Debut Academy continues to maintain an ongoing partnership contract with South Essex College, who recognises us as a specialist training provider for classroom and work based apprenticeships within the Industry.

Our Mission Statement

Debut Academy Limited aims to offer both a professional and educational environment that is centred on fun and exciting learning.
This gives our students the passion to want to advance to the highest level possible. We are committed to inspiring our students to show dedication and enthusiasm, and in return offer first class training by industry professionals, together with the latest teaching techniques which aid our students to achieve their skills and qualifications and progress into employment opportunities.

Our Vision Statement

We want to inspire and develop learners to realise their full potential and take ownership of their futures.

Salon History

Debut Salon first opened their doors in Wickford as a tanning salon in 1999. As the Nail and Beauty industry evolved so did Debut, we soon started providing Nail and Beauty Treatments to our clients.

In 2001 we expanded to Brentwood and opened our Salon there. Both salons have grown together and we pride ourselves in offering the most current and up-to-date treatments. Currently we have over 400 clients a week using our salons. We have 17 therapists and we make sure we are able to offer at least 4 apprentice placements.
