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.
Practical skills are developed on hand trainers - once a level of competence is reached clients are to be used for assessment. Theory is delivered alongside each unit and in house exams are set, however emphasis is placed on practical learning.
Students will be expected to wear uniform and present themselves in a professional manner as practical work will be assessed in the commercial salon.
You could use your newly gained qualification to seek employment in industry. However, it is always an advantage to offer as many different services as possible to your clients, so once you have achieved your Level 2, we would recommend that you enhance your knowledge base and develop your skills by progressing on to the Nail Services Level 3 course at Cornwall College.
