Are you interested in the latest fashion trends? Do you enjoy working with people? Are you creative and artistic? Then why not think about becoming a Beauty Therapist!
Work in the beauty industry is both interesting and varied. Job satisfaction is high. As a Beauty Therapist, you would usually work in a salon with other beauticians, hairdressers etc. Or you can, if you wish, decide to be your own boss and run a ‘mobile’ business, visiting your clients in their own homes. Whatever path you choose, it’s a job you’ll love doing, and you’ll make new friends too!
The great thing about the Beauty Therapist course is that you can study in your own time, at your own pace, from the comfort of home or from work. You will also have your own professional personal tutor offering full support by email and post.
On successful completion of the course students will receive an accredited Level 2 Certificate Award and a Distance Learning Diploma.
Please Note: As this is a theoretical course, you should gain some hands on training in a salon or practise on friends and family. To gain relevant insurance you would need to attend a one day assessment which we can arrange for you and would give students additional certification from The Guild Of Beauty Professionals. The one day conversion course would cost an additional £195.00 and can be arranged on completion of this course.
Please email us if you would like more information on available centres for conversion courses.
The course has been mapped against the National Occupational Standards for the Beauty industry set by habia.
