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 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.

Manicure and pedicure treatments are an essential skill for any therapist – all of us want attractive hands, feet and nails. Natural nail treatments, in particular, are growing in popularity amongst all ages and the addition of luxury treatments allows you to upsell your clients and boost earning potential. Facial treatments are also in high demand with many wanting to achieve flawless, natural skin without needing to apply make-up. A facial is great for relaxation and pampering, but also to help prevent the premature signs of ageing. Waxing treatments are sought after all year round to achieve smooth, hair-free skin, with clients returning every 4-6 weeks, creating a continual source of income (earning up to £50 per hour) particularly during the summer months. Make up treatments are popular for special occasions such as proms or weddings, so these skills are excellent for enabling you to offer packages to your clients. Lash & brow treatments are a staple treatment all year round for therapists and help to build regular, loyal clients as maintenance is required every 2-3 weeks. This exciting training package combines some of the most profitable treatments from the salon, allowing you to earn whilst working from home or mobile to suit both yours and your clients’ lifestyle.

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.
