Beauty Therapy

Beauty Courses A progression route for Level 2 Beauty Therapists wanting to gain employment within the beauty industry. This course is aimed at learners wishing to further their existing beauty skills in advanced techniques.

Not only will you develop existing skills but you will also train in the more specialist areas such as electrotherapy and microdermabrasion.

You will be expected to attend College for two/three days a week and will be required to work to high professional standards. You will train in one of our industry standard salons, work in a realistic environment and use the latest equipment, machinery and products within the industry.

What you will learn

You will get to develop your work based skills, recognising the importance of professional practice.

During the course, you will learn various advanced techniques and skills which are used by beauty therapists. You will gain the confidence and understanding of these techniques so you are prepared for work.

Areas of study include: Body Massage, Hot Stones Massage, Facial Electrotherapy, Body Electrotherapy, Indian Head Massage, Electrolysis and Microdermabrasion. In addition to all of the practical aspects of the course, you will learn salon practice, promotional activity, health and safety and anatomy & physiology for beauty therapists.

Our tutors are industry professionals and they will demonstrate the practical techniques as well as best practice so that you can be sure that you are equipped with the skills and know-how to perform these services independently.

When you are confident enough and have practiced the techniques to a level 3 standard, you will be able to provide services to paying customers.

Progression
