This VTCT Level 3 Award is ideal for existing or recently qualified beauty professionals looking to develop their knowledge of anatomical and physiological theory. It is excellent knowledge to be able to better understand the effects of the beauty services you offer upon the body systems, when consulting with your clients but also towards CPD (continuing professional development) or indeed to meet the pre-requirements of some further training providers for advanced courses such as those within aesthetics treatments, which specifically require a Level 3 qualification within anatomy and physiology.

As the qualification is completed entirely online, no attendance of a training centre is required; it is an excellent qualification to complete during lockdown restrictions or flexibly around other commitments. Typically achieved in 12-16 weeks, studying just a few hours a week around other commitments you may have.

There are no pre-requirements to complete this qualification. It is recommended for existing or recently qualified beauty professionals, salon owners and/or employers in the nail and beauty sector. Students will need access to a pc/laptop with high speed internet connection to complete coursework and online exams, as well as a good grasp of English to succeed within the coursework and exam aspects of this award.

Once you have completed your workbook and online exam, you will receive your VTCT qualification certificate (this can take up to 12 weeks to be released from the awarding body VTCT).

Completion of this qualification will allow you to extend your existing knowledge and apply this within your beauty practice when communicating with clients or indeed teaching beauty. This award is also the pre-requirement of many training companies providing advanced courses such as those within aesthetics treatments, allowing you to access further training to meet your career aspirations.
