Already registered with The Guild of Beauty Therapists or BABTAC for membership and/or insurance?

If you are already registered with The Guild or BABTAC for insurance and/or membership and wish to remain with them but are considering taking further training so you can extend the range of treatment possible to offer; then a Guild or BABTAC accredited course may be right for you. Select courses linked to the insurance body you are already with to ensure you can easily add on your new treatments to your existing insurance policy. Do bear in mind all Diploma Training Courses offered by The Beauty Academy are accredited by Associated Beauty Therapists so you can easily change to ABT for insurance (and receive a 10% discount) should you choose not to take a Guild or BABTAC accredited route and change insurance provider.

New to the industry and not yet insured?

If you are new to the industry, you might consider the Guild or BABTAC accredited training options to gain the additional benefits of joining the Guild or BABTAC either for insurance or membership such as a therapist listing upon their website, seasonal discounts on products/services and regular industry publications (such as The Guild News). However it may not necessarily be the best route for you if just wanting to get insured & earning from home or mobile within the shortest time possible – all Diploma Courses offered by The Beauty Academy are accredited by Associated Beauty Therapists (ABT) for insurance. If looking to gain employment, you may wish to look at the Internationally recognised VTCT Qualification routes which are highly sought by employers.

    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!
