This course is suited to students interested in a career in the beauty therapy industry. Students will be trained in a realistic working environment in the College’s state of the art salons. Students will experience the normal day-to-day running of a beauty salon and will engage with customers. This will ensure students are ready to begin an exciting journey within the beauty industry and will open various pathways for progression. The College would recommend a work placement to assist with the development of skills. This course is also available as an Apprenticeship.
Students will be required to purchase a uniform and kit upon commencement of the programme.
Applicants need at least 6 points at GCSE level, for example 2 Grade C or 3 Grade D. Successful applicants will be required to complete Essential Skills in Literacy, Numeracy and IT if they do not have a GCSE grade C in English, Maths or IT.
Places are subject to individual interview due to the nature of this course. All applicants must attend a pre-entry guidance session. This criterion may increase subject to demand for places.
A combination of practical observations and on-line theory tests are used to assess this qualification.
On completion of this course students will be eligible to enter into employment in Beauty Salons or the Cosmetic Industry. Alternatively, they may wish to further their studies by progressing onto the NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Beauty Therapy, Holistic Therapy Programmes or Hair and Media Make-up.
