What will I do?

The best way to learn how to give beauty treatments is to do just that. From day one you will be treating customers and clients in our commercial Graduate salon. You will gain skills in both beauty treatments and customer service, preparing you for a well-rounded and successful career. You will learn from guest therapists in specific workshops, have the opportunity to attend focus days at top London studios, enter national competitions, attend industry-related workshops and benefit from industry links with Champneys and Aqua Sana. You will gain skills to promote additional services or products to clients, providing manicures, pedicures, facial skin care, eye treatments, waxing and the application of make-up. You will also have the opportunity to gain skills in reception duties and take part in work experience.

What's next?

This qualification will provide you with the requisite knowledge, understanding and skills to work competently as a Beauty Therapist. You must be determined to pursue a career in the beauty industry, whether you’ve get your eyes set on your own business, or travelling the globe on a cruise ship. You must be able to think logically and prioritise health and safety at all times. You must be a friendly, sociable person with impeccable communication skills, and a passion for all things beauty! 

Is it for me?

Our courses can give you the platform to go out into the workplace straight from college, or continue learning in a specialist field, depending on what you’re passionate about. You could continue your studies through an Apprenticeship where you will be able to gain further qualifications and experience while earning a wage. The beauty industry lends itself well to self-employment and entrepreneurship – as a qualified Beauty Therapist you would have the skills and knowledge to set up your own mobile business. You can also join a professional register such as the Register of Beauty Professionals.
