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.

  Entry Requirements

You should be enthusiastic to learn a variety of advanced practical skills and the associated knowledge, which will develop your employment opportunities within the beauty therapy industry. As with all therapy professions, you will need to create the right impression with your clients and must therefore be professional, courteous and discreet. Excellent communication skills are essential. This is an intensive, knowledge-based course and we do look for enthusiasm and motivation to succeed on the course.

  Assessment

Theory is delivered for each unit and in-house exams are set, however emphasis is placed on practical learning. Paying clients are to be used for practical assessment.

Alongside the theory you will produce a portfolio of your work which will be verified and should include assessment books, projects, and theoretical work

  Progression

Afterwards, you may wish to progress on to the salon management qualification which incorporates light & laser for skin rejuvenation and advanced electrolysis or use your new qualification to gain employment in industry.

Opportunities exist for beauty therapists throughout the UK as well as overseas in holiday resorts, on cruise ships and major airlines. There are good prospects for beauty therapists and you could follow a variety of career paths.
