What is nabuno?

nabuno (which is pronounced na-boon-oh) will be launching very soon, and we hope you’ll join in our excitement at the first ever dedicated nail, beauty & hair education site.  nabuno brings you a one-stop shop for all things education within the industry. 

nabuno is born from a desire to inspire and promote good education practices within our industry and help Learners of all levels locate quality education within their desired skill base and beyond.  Whether this is your first course, or you’ve been in industry for several years or a lifetime, we want you to be able to find the course that will start a new journey or maybe just refresh or update a skill. 

The nabuno concept is the innovation of nail industry veteran, Sue Davies, who has her own award winning salon and wealth of experience within the industry; she is joined by Diane Hughes, who specialises in graphic design and marketing.     

 “I’ve worked alongside some amazing people through my career gaining knowledge, experience and a view of the industry that brings me to where I am today.”

Sue Davies

Sue and Diane have worked together over the past three years and nabuno is a natural progression in their working partnership. Bringing together Sue’s knowledge of the health and beauty industry, with Diane’s knowledge of online business marketing and building online presence, means that monies spent with nabuno will give bigger returns than lone academy online advertising for our Education Providers, and high-quality educational opportunities for our Learners.

We want to match our Learners with quality Educators, ensuring they find the course that is right for their level of experience, and know that they they are investing in quality education delivered by trusted industry professionals.”

Diane Hughes

nabuno has teamed up with industry experts, who are highly respected within their field, to ensure our Learners and Educators alike benefit from their knowledge and experience. We want nabuno to brighten the future of our industry; giving back to our community with complimentary educational resources, great courses and assistance to grow and develop your careers and businesses and grow into quality professionals.

For our Education Providers

There will be a variety of membership levels at which all Education Providers can access nabuno. All our Education Providers will be required to prove all their formal education qualifications and provide documents as evidence of their up to date accreditation or awarding body approval. Other relevant documents such as insurance will also be required. Learners will, for the first time, be able to review their Education Providers’ courses in an exclusive educational environment, providing a positive legacy for their academy. There is no promoted competition on pricing as our search facilities steer Learners to look at what they are gaining through quality rather than cost.

Currently in development is nabuno sphere, our bespoke booking system available to reduce the time you spend on course bookings and administration, saving you money and time.

For our Learners

We will have a searchable “Find My Course” facility where Education Providers are able to showcase their training facilities and course options. This gives Education  Providers the opportunity to tell our prospective Learners who they are, what they offer, when their next course is and where they are located.  Learners from all backgrounds and levels can search courses by awarding or accrediting body, location, reviews, skill level and more.  With our ethos being on quality education (not discounted or low-quality education) our search facility will not include a price search. 

nabuno course vouchers (e-Vouchers) will  be purchasable towards all our courses meaning you can purchase course vouchers towards more expensive courses or you can give the opportunity for birthday and Christmas gift purchases to your friends and family.
