ve your Qualification in as little as 16 weeks!

Our fantastic courses are designed for complete beginners, you can join the Level 3 Courses as a complete beginner and with no previous qualifications or training needed. It’s ideal for anyone who has an interest in the Beauty industry and would like to train for an exciting career.

Our courses are studied over a part time basis with practical face to face training days, to help you acquire the treatment skills under the support of an experienced tutor. You will also complete assignments from home to cover your theory (for which full, easy to follow study materials are provided). Home study also includes practising treatments from home on friends and family to help you build your confidence.

The beauty of our course structure is that it allows you to train around your other commitments such as work, childcare or even if you would just prefer the advantages of part time study such as less attendance required to achieve than colleges requiring a year of daily attendance.
