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.
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. This package also includes the UV Gel Nail Extensions course. UV gel nail extensions uses a no-odour system, requiring no additional products or chemicals (sometimes referred to as a ‘pre-mixed system’), using an ultraviolet (UV) light is used to cure/set the extension which is applied using the tip and overlay method. This offers a more flexible nail extension alternative for those not suited to acrylics, wanting a natural looking tip still allowing the nail underneath to grow. UV gel extensions are in high-demand and this treatment proves to be an extremely profitable skill to learn. UV Gel Nail extensions can easily be finished with gel polish for an add-on service boosting earning potential and a high shine, long lasting result. Following this Quick Start Diploma Package, you will have significantly developed your skills to work from home and mobile as a Nail Technician offering three of the most popular nail services.
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.
