What is the difference between distance learning, live courses and face 2 face?

Live courses are completed by using a mixture of online material through our portal and a live practical webinar with one of our highly skilled tutors. With a maximum of 6 people during the session, we'll be using zoom as a conferencing tool to perform the virtual webinar.

Distance Learning you will be provided online access to our online portal, here you will have access to training video's, pdf and assessments but you will NOT have the live tutor session.  The entire course is completed online. 

Face to Face you will attend one of your training schools in the south-east for your practical day - click here to see our face to face courses

Which training method is right for me?

This entirely depends on your situation. We offer three methods as a company:

  1. Face to Face in one of our beauty schools (click here to see our face to face courses)
  2. Distance learning
  3. Live Courses 

All with their own pros and cons, but as a company, we feel we need to offer our customers the flexibility of all three.  

* NVQ upgrades not available through a virtual platform, you can upgrade and complete your home study but will need to attend class-based assessments when the school reopens

What’s the difference between a diploma and an NVQ/VRQ qualification?

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/Brow Lamination.

If you decide to upgrade to VRQ/NVQ (VTCT is the name of the awarding Body)
Once you have completed the Diploma day you will be required to complete the following as *home study:
- Practice Diary to help build technique, confidence and timings
- Case Studies to put together consultations, service and aftercare with assessment paperwork
- Assignment to demonstrate knowledge understanding
During this time you will have access you all documents online and contact details for our NVQ Coordinator and Education Manager for any questions you may have.
Once all of the above has been completed, you would return to the school to complete your assessments and written exams.
*Home study may take 2-8 weeks depending on your time available to complete content.

Can I upgrade my diploma to an NVQ at a later date?

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. 

Can I get insurance with my Diploma certificate?

Most insurance companies will insure you with a Diploma or NVQ certificate.  Our specialist insurance scheme through Salonsafe& ABT 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.

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.

How many students are there in a class?

We believe in keeping virtual class sizes small, so students have more one 2 one time with our tutors. Our normal class size is 4 to 8.
