WE MAY TAKE PHOTOS/VIDEOS DURING COURSE IF YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR IMAGE USED ON SOCIAL MEDIA WEBSITE INSTAGRAM ETC PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LET THE TUTOR KNOW BEFORE LEAVING COURSE.
We provide students with access to our online training area before they attend the school. We find by doing this they are able to complete the theory in their own time and are able to absorb more information. This also means we have more time for practical, which then allows the tutor to demonstrate best practices as well as answer any Q & A’s.
The really depends on what you're looking to do, if you're looking to treat friends, go mobile or run your business from home then we’d recommend a diploma by the Beauty Guild. However, if you were looking to work in a Salon or Spa most would require you to have an NVQ/VRQ qualification.
If you decide on the NVQ/VRQ qualification you'll also be required to attend an additional day for assessment, further to this you'll automatically receive a diploma qualification. More information will be given to you during your practical day at the School. Assessments are only available at Kent or Essex.
The upgrade will cost £158 per treatment for example Manicure £158 Pedicure £158. Cost for other upgrades £220 each for Full Body Massage, Microdermabrasion, Reflexology Eyelash Extensions, Epilation and Facial/Body Electrotherapy, and is available during checkout. NO VRQ Upgrade available for Lash Lifting/ Quick Dip Acrylic/ Defined Brows.
Yes, you’ll have the option to do this. You’ll have to pay the additional fee (see above) for the upgrade, and we’ll then provide you with all the additional material for your NVQ qualification. We’ll then schedule your assessment day at the school.
Most insurance companies will insure you with a Diploma or NVQ certificate. Our specialist insurance scheme through Salonsafe provides tailored cover for our qualified students. The insurance allows our students to gain cover to work on the public, with treatment risk included as standard. Please click here for further information.
It will depend on the circumstances surrounding the cancellation and the notice given(see T&C for more details). In the instance that a refund is requested due to illness, medical notification will be required. Unfortunately, we are unable to give a refund if the online theory has been accessed/completed.
Yes. As well as doing the online theory at your own pace, students will find that by practising at home AFTER you have taken the course, performing approximately 6 -8 treatments, they will achieve more confidence in doing treatments. Free refreshers are offered up to 6 month after course date if you feel you need more training.
We believe in keeping the class sizes small, so students have more one 2 one time with our tutors. Our normal class size is 4 to 8.
