A VTCT Level 3 Qualification in Nail Technology is becoming the industry-required standard in nails and recognized by many sectors of the nail industry. This particular course, the most advanced nail course that we offer, will enable you to provide a complete nail technology service and work as a professional nail technician, either self-employed or within a salon. You will learn a wide range of practical skills, from how to carry out a relaxing pedicure treatment to accurately achieving the most in-demand of nail enhancement shapes, either using UV gel or acrylic processes.
Whilst you are perfecting your practical skills during training, you will also be consolidating your theoretical knowledge with our comprehensive study material, answering written questions in your electronic workbooks to submit as coursework. You will also be practicing the skills that you have learnt at our training centre on models (friends/family) at home, gradually building a portfolio of treatments to submit as your practical coursework.
Our assessment process will ensure that your techniques, from hygiene requirements to attention to detail, are at a satisfactory industry level, and re-affirm the skills learnt during your practical training. This exciting course is hands-on, provides you with in-depth detail on a range of nail treatments and it is designed to prepare you to begin your career within the industry. The qualification not only provides you with extensive career opportunities, it is also internationally recognized and demonstrates your ability to work to an industry-standard level of practice.
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 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.
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.

Once you have completed your assessment days you will receive your qualification certificate (this can take up to 12 weeks to be released from the awarding body VTCT).
Once you have completed your practical training day with us, there is no additional work to be completed. Your diploma certificate will be sent to you within 1-2 working days and you can then begin working from home or mobile once insurance has been obtained.
Aside from your practical training, your course also involves home-study and assessments as required by the awarding body VTCT. Our qualifications (all levels) require both written and practical coursework to be submitted and marked by an assessor before you can be progressed to the assessment stage.
At the time of booking your qualification, you will be sent your study materials (including: workbooks; Student Study Guide; Practical Assignment document; revision notes and our Student Handbook) to get you started with your coursework.
As you complete your practical training, you can begin working on your practical assignment. We have a Support Team that is on hand to answer any of your questions via email or telephone at any stage during the course of your qualification.
