About Joule Academy

About Joule Academy

Joule Academy was established in 2020 as a VTCT fully approved private training academy based in Warrington, Cheshire, offering courses in Barbering, Complementary Therapies and Training and Education.  Our courses are delivered face to face as well as online and range from one day to 12 months.  We offer taster days and qualifications from awards to certificates and diplomas.  We also offer CPD courses.  Our tutors are passionate about their specialist subjects and currently work and teach in their specific professions. 

The founder of Joule Academy Julie, wanted to provide quality training at affordable prices that were fully recognised, accepted and insurable within the industry.  Julie wanted to provide courses that play a vital part in supporting our mental health and well being to keep us balanced in our everyday busy lives and offer this out to the community as treatments, so they can benefit from the training too. 

Julie believes that when you are passionate about what you do, you love to teach others and pass those skills on and that’s why teaching, and education are important for future generations to come. 

About Julie

Julie established her hair salon at the age of 23 and whilst Julie built up the salon, she entered the teaching profession gaining assessor and teaching qualifications. For seventeen and a half years she took an active role in teaching and training learners of all ages to help them achieve their NVQ, working for some of the largest training providers in the North West. She progressed further into a Lead Quality Assurance role, ensuring the quality of the accredited centres for hairdressing, barbering, teaching and functional skills over a ten-year period. For the past two years Julie has worked as an Independent End Point Assessor for City & Guilds, assessing the hairdressing, and barbering professional standards as well as working in her salon.

From a young age Julie was interested in complementary therapies and attended many courses and gained qualifications which enabled her to expand the salons services in complementary therapies.  She always dreamt of building an academy to help others achieve their potential and in October 2020 Joule Academy was born. 

Julie’s moto is:

Think it, Believe it, Make it happen.
