Sothys Academy launches in Paris

Sothys Academy has launched to inspire the next generation, reveals training director Isabelle Villey


High-quality effective training is one of the most fundamental pillars of any successful professional spa brand. For Sothys Group, this is one of its founding principles and has served as the inspiration behind the creation of its new international training centre in the heart of Paris.

Located in the 8th arrondissement, The Sothys Academy has been established to support and inspire skincare professionals globally. It constitutes not only the training headquarters for the group’s three brands – Sothys, Bernard Cassiere and Beauty Garden – but also houses the group’s HQ.

Sothys Group’s vision was to create a highly adaptable working environment with a quintessentially Parisian feel. To execute this vision, it tapped the expertise of French architectural firm, Studio Kompa, and created a facility featuring areas for theory-based and practical training.

A global approach
Capable of hosting 24 therapists, the centre is overseen by a team of four international trainers, two US trainers, six local trainers and one for Latin America.

“The Sothys Academy has been created by and for beauticians to make learning a shared pleasure,” explains Isabelle Villey, Sothys training director.

“It champions a varied, fun and participative teaching approach that enables students to become global Sothys ambassadors. Its opening marks the establishment of a major new European flagship for our brands, as well as the introduction of an important central learning hub for our global partners.

“The academy’s launch has elevated the Sothys Group name further and reinforced its position as one of the world’s leading premium spa brands.”

The company has devised an innovative schedule of training sessions to enable partner spas and their teams to top up their knowledge and upskill throughout the year.

For new spa partners, The Sothys Academy is hosting introductory account-opening training, plus one-day courses focused on signature treatments. Additional programmes include one-day sessions highlighting new product launches and a module dedicated to product advice and sales.
