Career Choice

If you would like to work as a Beauty Therapist and you are considering taking a training course then the the first decision you have to make is whether you want to…

Work as Self Employed

If you wish to work as a mobile therapist or offer occasional treatments from home, you will be sufficiently qualified with The Beauty Academy Diploma.

All students (except those on funded routes) receive the Diploma which allows you to gain public liability (beauty) insurance to work with paying clients from home or mobile. It allows you to begin earning straight away, even while working towards a qualification.

If you are already a qualified therapist, you may wish to study The Beauty Academy Diploma courses to refresh your knowledge or acquire new skills.

OR

Work as Employed

If you wish to gain employment in the industry or just want to keep your career options open, we recommend you to consider the Level 2 and Level 3 qualification courses.

Most employers in salons, spas, nail bars and on cruise ships will require therapists to hold a Level 2 and/or Level 3 Qualification. Qualifications demonstrate to employers that the therapist is proficient in their treatments and is committed to high standards in the industry.

If you wish to open your own salon premises or have a permanent treatment room from home, you will also usually require a Qualification to comply with local authority licensing. Students are recommended to contact their local authority before enrolling to establish the exact requirements.

    I made a last minute decision to attend the ‘dry manicure and gel polish’ course and so glad I did! The tutor (Donnamarie) was so passionate and inspiring that she gave me the confidence I needed. Everything was well explained and the group was small enough get the best out of the day.

    Brilliant course. Tutor Leanne was so helpful and friendly and made me feel totally at ease. I was nervous as I have never done any beauty training before and she put me at ease straight away. Brilliant service and I will one hundred percent be using again. Thank you very much!!
