What is the course about?

Studying this course will provide you with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills you need to confidently perform manicures, pedicures, facials, eye treatments, waxing and make-up. In addition to participating in practical sessions you will also be learning and researching the underpinning knowledge relating to each unit.

Learning on your course will take place in our state-of-the-art salon, The Academy, which features fully equipped professional beauty therapy suites. Being immersed in this front-facing salon environment and working on real paying clients will give the opportunity to put your newly developed skills to the test and receive live, honest critique. The open salon practical sessions will give you the opportunity to demonstrate your professionalism and develop a range of beauty therapy techniques for a variety of skin types.

This course is suitable for anyone wishing to start a career in the beauty industry. You will also gain the knowledge and practical experience needed to help you gain qualifications in other practical treatments or progress on to further training.

  • Apply makeup.

Throughout the course you will be assessed performing the treatments on paying clients. For each unit an online exam will be completed, along with a diverse range of assessment methods including oral and written questions and assignments, to ensure you build a high-quality portfolio.

What will the course lead on to?

By completing this course, you will be in a position to offer mobile beauty therapy treatments or work within a salon environment. You can also top up the qualification to support your progression on to the Level 3 Beauty Therapy course.
