1. Payment in full using Credit / Debit
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.
3. Payment Plan for 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 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.
Massage treatments are popular with clients of all ages looking to relax, unwind or gain symptomatic relief from a range of ailments such as stress, fatigue, muscle pain and aches. This fantastic training package enables you to learn the most commonly requested treatments within salons and spas, allowing you to work from home or mobile to offer greater flexibility to your clients. The course is suitable for complete beginners.
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.
All products and tools are provided for the training days at the centre when you attend. No kit is required to complete the training days, nor included in the course fee. On the training days, 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.
