This diploma package consists of four practical training days:  These courses are not necessarily run consecutively and you can choose the dates to suit you at your desired training centre (subject to availability).

Each training day runs from 10am – 4pm and 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.

There are also two Online courses included within this training package to help you further advance your treatment skills and the nail services you can offer to your clients. The Online courses are completed at your own pace through our online student portal, fully guided with comprehensive training manuals and tutorial videos to enable you to confidently learn the treatment skills.

Our friendly, expert Advisors are on hand to answer any questions & assist you in booking your place over the telephone*. Call on Freephone 0800 999 2277

Alternatively, most of our courses can be booked online 24/7, using our secure payment system.

  1. Simply choose your venue and date
  2. Click the add to basket button
  3. Then complete the secure, online checkout

*Payment in full at time of booking online or by telephone allows you to select 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. Deko Finance (Payment Plan) is available on all bookings over £299. To enquire, simply click ‘Apply for Payment Plan’ on the right-hand side or give us a call to learn more.

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.


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 & Pedicure is an essential skill for any nail technician; all of us want attractive hands but we don’t always have the time to maintain them. It is one of the most in-demand nail treatments throughout the country, helping to keep natural nails and the skin of the hands and feet healthy and attractive. The Dry Manicure & Application of Gel Polish course will teach you the essential skills that any nail technician should hold in order to provide a gel polish application and dry manicure treatment to their clients. Due to the longevity and high-gloss finish, this treatment is particularly popular all-year round

This package also includes the Acrylic Nail Extensions course (a two-component system using liquid and powder; the strongest and most versatile of nail enhancements) and the UV Gel Nail Extensions course which is popular for its non-odour formula over acrylic and gives natural looking nail enhancements. Both courses teach the tip and overlay method of application allowing you to be confident in the fundamentals of nail extensions.

As an additional bonus, the package includes two online courses within Quick Dip Nails (a great system for repairing natural nails or as an alternative to gel polish / acrylic systems) and the Nail Art to give you the skills to create unique nail designs that offer that ‘something extra’ for your clients over the competition. This exciting training package combines our most popular face to face training courses with two invaluable online courses. You will have confidence within providing the most profitable nail treatments from within salons, 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.

You will be required to give and receive treatments on the Manicure & Pedicure training day so will need to remove nail extensions, polish and/or gel polish before attending this training day. You will work on a professional nail trainer hand for the Acrylic Nail Extension training day so no models are required.

All products and tools are provided for the practical training day(s) 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 towel for your personal use, completed enrolment form and cold food for your lunch (e.g. sandwich/salad). Tea & coffee are provided.

For the online courses, these are completed through our online student portal. This is entirely online based and can be accessed quickly and easily from any mobile device connected to the internet including smart phones, tablets, laptops & PCs. It can be accessed at any time, anywhere in the world so you can work through the course at a pace to suit you, around any existing commitments you may have. You will be sent login details to access our Online Student Portal as soon as your bookings is processed. You will be guided through your online course(s) so you are clear what is required at each stage. You will work through the comprehensive study materials online at your own pace; including training manuals, video tutorials and multiple choice tests to help demonstrate your understanding. You must achieve 70% on each online theory test but can retake the tests as many times as you need. You will need to complete a small number of treatments at home on friends or family and submit evidence of these treatments to complete your online course(s). This is approximately 3-6 treatments depending on the course, although we recommend you complete as many treatments as you need to build your confidence before submitting your practical assignment. You will need basic products and tools at home to complete these treatments so we recommend the purchase of a starter kit.

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.

When you have successfully attended your face to face practical 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. 

When you have successfully completed your online training course(s), you will receive a certificate issued by The Beauty Academy recognising your achievement on the Online course(s). These are great to support applications for further training courses, entering employment or indeed may be considered CPD for existing therapists. You will be able to provide these additional treatments on yourself, to friends, family and clients.

We recommend purchase our student insurance policy (£20) while studying and then our professional insurance package (£70) before you offer treatments to paying clients. Remember to follow closely what you have learned on your course and to always adhere to best practice. You can find out more and purchase insurance online by visiting the page for Information on Insurance Scheme for online courses.

Once you have completed your 4 face to face practical training days with us, there is no additional work to be completed for those subjects. Your diploma certificate will be sent to you within 1-2 working days of attending each training day and you can then begin working from home and/or mobile, once insurance has been obtained.

For the Online Courses (Nail Art and Quick Dip Nails) only, you will need to work through the learning materials through our online student portal, complete the multiple choice theory tests and submit evidence of 3 treatment case studies for each online course in order to achieve the additional course certificates for the included online courses within this package. It is optional as to whether you complete the online courses included, beyond attendance of the 4 practical training days but they will give you valuable further treatments to offer to your clients.

We recommend all students purchase Student Insurance while studying their Online course. This is available for just £20 (plus tax) and covers you while practising your treatments on friends and family. This can be purchased securely online directly from Radius Insurance.

Upon successful completion of your online course, you will be issued with a certificate from The Beauty Academy which is recognised by Radius, the leading provider of professional beauty insurance. This will allow you to gain Therapist Insurance for just £70 (plus tax) to cover you when working from home or mobile providing your treatments. Find out more at our Insurance for Online Courses

The Beauty Academy offers a discounted insurance scheme with Balens; a Specialist Insurance Brokers aimed at Health and Well-Being Professionals, offering both Therapist and Student Therapist insurance for those who train with us on face to face training courses. To learn more about our insurance scheme, please click here.


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.

We offer high-quality accredited training with experienced tutors, professional equipment and a great atmosphere to train in. Our training centres are well-equipped, within easy reach of public transport and regularly inspected by our accrediting awarding body (VTCT) to ensure we are giving you the best service for your money. We pride ourselves on working with only qualified and experienced tutors who are friendly, welcoming and happy to go the extra mile to deliver the very best student experience possible.
