What you will learn

You will be learning in our purpose-built salons, training in a commercial environment and learning beauty therapy techniques from industry professionals. They will demonstrate everything that you need to know and you will then practice the skills that you have been shown on fellow colleagues.

Eventually, you will be providing treatments to paying clients. From facials, pedicure, manicure, waxing, make up, eye lash and brow treatments, you will be trained to industry standards.

You will also have the opportunity to develop your work-based skills, working on the salon reception, promoting products and practicing retail services.

Regular tutorials and demonstrations from teaching staff will embed your knowledge, giving you the confidence to practice beauty therapy in paid employment.

Entry requirements

You will need to have a minimum GCSEs at grade 3 or working towards grade 4 in English and maths.

At Cornwall College, we recognise that applicants without these qualifications can often offer a high level of competence as well as life experience and we will therefore consider all applications on their merits alongside their qualifications.

If you are unsure as to whether or not you meet the requirements, please call the department and ask to speak to the study programme manager who will be happy to discuss it with you.

Assessment

You will be assessed through either written assignments or online multiple choice questions, as well as practical assessment on customers in our commercial salons that are open to the public.

Progression

Once you have completed the Beauty Therapy Level 2 course, you will have an essential understanding of the beauty industry and be ready to move on to the more advanced Level 3 courses.

It is always an advantage to offer as many different treatments as possible to your clients, so once you have achieved Beauty Therapy Level 2, we would recommend that you enhance your knowledge base and develop your skills by progressing on to the Advanced Beauty & Spa Therapies Diploma Level 3 course at Cornwall College.
