Skincare is a fundamental within anyone’s day-to-day beauty regime. Many of us are striving to achieve a natural-looking glow and encouraging anti-ageing effects without the need for surgery, often buying into the latest trends for optimum results, be it creams, oils or exfoliators. Facials, from deeply penetrating massages to galvanic treatments, are not only renowned for their highly-relaxing qualities, the skin also reaps the aesthetic benefits.

They can effectively defy or delay signs of ageing, amongst other desired results, due to the stimulation of circulation in both blood and oxygen, beneath the skin’s surface. From making the skin appear more awake to alleviating the appearance of fine lines without the need of make-up, your client’s concerns can be lessened with these indulgent, non-invasive treatment.

The Beauty Academy offers a wide range of Facial Courses, taught in our nine training centres based around the UK, including the rejuvenating process of microdermabrasion and a two-day course in electrical facial procedures.

Many clients require numerous treatments at once, so it is in your interest to offer a range of these treatments to make your business as profitable as it can be.

If you are looking to embark upon a career specifically as a Facial Specialist, we offer courses in Facial Massage and Skincare, Electrical Facials and Microdermabrasion.

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.

Payment options suitable for everyone

Our friendly advisors are on hand on Freephone 0800 9992277 to assist you in booking your place over the telephone, or online. Depending on your choice of course we can offer a choice of payment options. See below for further information.

By making payment in full, you can secure your course place and enjoy the greatest flexibility to book all of your training days at your preferred training centre, in the best way to suit you – whether that’s as a consecutive block (subject to availability) or taken at your own pace. Book securely online 24/7, or call our friendly Advisors by book by phone.

 

Our Deko Finance option is available on all courses, diploma course packages and VTCT qualifications over £299. You have three options – to make repayments either over 12, 24, or 36 months at only 9.9%, all with just a 20% deposit.

A very important point regarding finance options: Many of our students are fairly young and may not have taken out finance before; perhaps they are living with mum/dad or boyfriend/partner and have not had their own name on an electoral roll for at least 3 years. Now, although it may seem a bit harsh it is very true that all finance companies will view your application very critically if any of the above is true. A way around this is to increase your deposit to say 40% but this needs to be done at the outset and not after you have been rejected.

If you feel that any of the above does apply to you then please just have a word with one of our Course Advisors before making an application.


The Deko finance option allows you book and attend your chosen courses with us while making affordable, monthly repayments to spread the cost. You don’t need to wait to book training sessions, you can complete all training as you wish, selecting from our available scheduled dates without delay. This is a great payment choice for those who desire the flexibility to manage studying around work commitments / childcare or even wish to complete their award as soon as possible; but who need the option to spread the cost into more affordable payments, over a longer term.

You can increase your deposit to reduce your payments and you can pay off early if you wish. No hidden fees or charges. The scheme is subject to the usual credit checks etc.

    I attended the Spa body massage course which I thoroughly enjoyed. Our tutor Lisa was lovely and made the course very enjoyable and learnt a lot from this 2 day course. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanted a career in massage therapy. I will be booking more courses in the future with The Beauty Academy. Thank you!
