SMB College Group Awarded as ‘Platinum College of Excellence’ by Ragdale Hall Spa

SMB College Group has been recognised as a Platinum College of Excellence by Ragdale Hall Spa!


This great achievement has been awarded to SMB College Group for its great reputation, high standard teaching and consistent support and communication from tutors regarding events, visits and talks.

Platinum status opens the College to exciting new benefits, including guaranteed work experience for certain students, workshops to help educate and upskill students for future employment and a CPD day program for lecturers.

Ragdale Hall Spa is a multi-award-winning, dedicated spa, with extensive facilities and indulgent treatments.

SMB College Group has been working with Ragdale Spa sending Beauty Therapy students from Stephenson and Brooksby Campuses to carry out work experience alongside their studies, which often leads to employment at the Spa on a full-time or part-time basis.

Lynne-Marie Benzie, Training and Development Supervisor at Ragdale, wrote to the College

“I would once again like to congratulate you on the achievement of your Platinum status and look forward to working with you during the next academic year.”

Claire Stocker, Beauty Therapy Lecturer at SMB College Group, said

“We are very proud to be awarded platinum status with Ragdale Hall. The experience that the students receive from the team at Ragdale is outstanding and enables them to get a real insight into the industry.

The students receive a range of activities from experienced staff at the Hall which range from extra-curricular activities such as talks from industry experts, trade testing, additional training to working within the hall itself. I am really excited to be working with the team and participating in all of the exciting opportunities Ragdale Hall offers to both staff and students at platinum colleges.”
