1. Payment in full using Credit / Debit
2. Payment Plan – Courses over £299
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 19.9%, 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.
Our three-day Complete Make-Up course is designed for complete beginners who have a keen interest in make-up, who are seeking career opportunities within this exciting industry. During the training, you will learn a range of techniques which will enable you to offer special occasion / bridal and photographic make-up services to clients. The course will introduce you to the skills of creating a flawless base and airbrushed finish, through to creating a timeless red carpet glamour look suitable for proms, black tie & work events. Learn the iconic smokey eye look and ombre lips for a captivating and seductive effect. Enhance the flawless base with skin sculpting to add definition, light and dimension to facial contours.
For the majority of the course, you will be practising your make-up looks on each other adhering to a given brief, in-between observing tutor demonstrations. We are not brand-specific and we have a wide range of make-up products for you to use.
Our diploma courses are suitable for complete beginners and do not require any prior learning to be able to train with us; many of our students are not yet beauty trained and are looking to start up a business in the industry. We welcome students of all abilities, whether you are looking to learn a new skill from scratch or currently working as a therapist and looking to refresh your knowledge of particular treatments.
Students will give and receive treatments as part of this course, with students working upon each other so no models are required. All products and tools are provided for the training day at the centre when you attend. No kit is required to complete the training day, nor included in the course fee. On the training day, you only need to bring a hand towel for your personal use, completed enrolment form and cold food for your lunch (e.g. sandwich/salad). Tea & coffee are provided.
When you have successfully completed your training course(s), you will receive a diploma certificate issued by The Beauty Academy which is accredited by ABT. This not only demonstrates your commitment to the training, but also allows you to obtain Public Liability Insurance so you can start offering treatments to paying clients from home and/or mobile.
All of our diploma courses enable you to work from both home and mobile offering the specialised treatment(s) that you have completed. You can start earning by offering treatments to paying clients as soon as you have obtained your insurance.
Once you feel confident in completing basic make-up, you can continue onto further courses such as our Lash & Brow Courses or Nail Courses, to enhance your skill-set and allow you to offer the complete package of treatment services to your clients in preparation for special occasions / weddings.
You may consider completing a VTCT qualification in make-up or beauty to further your career opportunities within this industry. To learn more about the qualifications that we offer, please click here.
