Our Manicure and Pedicure Training Course will teach you two of the most requested services within the beauty industry, specifically how to perform these treatments with confidence, adhering to a professional level of service. These are fundamental treatments to offer if you are looking to work as a nail technician or beauty therapist; especially as they are highly in-demand all year round for clients of all ages.

  • Health, safety & hygiene
  • Consultation techniques
  • Contraindications
  • Manicure procedure*
  • Pedicure procedure*
  • French Manicure procedure
  • Filing and cuticle work
  • Massage of the hand and foot

*Please note: During the course you will give and receive treatments. It is essential that nail extensions and any gel polish are removed from your nails prior to this training day.

This course is structured over one day and runs from 10am – 4pm. We ask students to arrive at 9.45am to ensure a prompt start. You will learn the theory of the treatment firstly, and spend the majority of the day practising your practical skills, with a short break for lunch.

Our friendly, expert Advisors are on hand to answer any questions & assist you in booking your place over the telephone*. Call on Freephone 0800 9992277

Manicures are an essential skill for any therapist; all of us want attractive hands but don’t always have the time to maintain them. French Manicure, in particular, is a popular manicure treatment all-year round, especially for brides and those who do not want colour on their nails, being timelessly stylish but understated. Similarly, pedicures are a great way to provide basic foot care for those on their feet all day, focusing on the skin condition and nail care. Both treatments are relaxing for clients and offer a basic but essential service that are fundamental for all nail technicians working from home or mobile. There is a minimal start-up cost to begin offering treatments and clients return on a monthly basis to maintain the appearance of their hands and feet. It is also a great opportunity to sell retail products to your clients as most clients will want to purchase the products you have used on them.

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.

You will give and receive treatments as part of this course and so must remove any nail extensions, polish and/or gel polish from finger and toe nails before attending the course. 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 and bath towel for your personal use, completed enrolment form and cold food for your lunch (e.g. sandwich/salad). Tea & coffee are provided on the day.

We are so proud at The Beauty Academy to work with such a professional, passionate and friendly team of tutors, all of which hold a Level 2 and Level 3 qualification in their specialised sector. Our tutors are also all qualified with either Level 4 PTTLS or equivalent teaching awards in education, with years of experience in beauty-related professional industries. Furthermore, our tutors who are involved in the assessment process all hold an Assessors Award.

We pride ourselves on the welcoming nature of our tutors and their ability to engage, educate and enrich students from all ages and backgrounds. All of our tutors are dedicated to maintaining their knowledge and keeping up to date with the latest treatments and techniques in the ever-changing industry.

If you would like to read more about our fantastic tutors individually, please have a look at our Meet the Tutors page.

When you have successfully completed your training course(s), you will receive a diploma certificate issued by The Beauty Academy. 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.
