This course will give you the training you need to become both a diagnostic and practising beauty therapist. You will work through the course flexibly and at your own pace.

You will be based in a purpose-built learning environment, which is run as a commercial salon with clients you will eventually be offering treatments to.

You will cover subjects, including:

  • eyelash and brow treatments,
  • basic facials,
  • health and safety,
  • manicure,
  • pedicure,
  • promoting products and services,
  • waxing,
  • reception,
  • contribute to the development of effective working relationships,
  • make-up

You will benefit from work placements with professional establishments.

You will be entering into an industry where image and appearance are important. Represent your industry well and you will win the confidence of the client at first sight. There are professional standards of dress and appearance which must be followed so you will be required to wear college salon uniform.
