11 Weeks


January start




You will learn about make-up for different facial features, skin types, eye and lip shapes, different facial characteristics, glasses and contact lens wearers as well as lighting and other photographic make-up factors.  You will learn how to use professional make-up products, tools and equipment.

Entry Requirements

Ideally you should have completed a level 2 in Beauty Therapy or level 2 in Media Make-Up to progress onto this level 3 course.  However, if evidence of prior learning can be proven at interview then an initial assessment may be made.

To join: You will need to attend a part-time enrolment session at Huddersfield.  Dates and times are as follows:

  • Wednesday 28th August (any time from 12:00-19:00)
  • Thursday 29th August (any time from 17:00-19:00)
  • Friday 30th August (any time from 10:00-13:00)

Please make sure to bring with you some photo ID, proof of address and, depending on your circumstances, either proof of benefits (something dated within the last three months) and/or a method of payment. You are not expected to pay for the course in full upon enrolling – you can arrange to pay in monthly instalments to be completed by the end of the course in June.

Assessment Methods

VTCT courses are assessed and verified by centre staff.  Work will be set to improve your practical skills, knowledge and understanding.  For practical elements, you will be observed by your assessor.  All your work must be collected in a portfolio of evidence and cross referenced to requirements listed in this record of assessment book.
