Staying Safe at The Beauty Academy

Updated 19 July 2021:

With restrictions relaxing as of 19th July, we are keen to maintain safety of both staff and students as a priority. In line with this, we will be maintaining our Covid-secure measures on an ongoing basis for the foreseeable, at all centres.

  • Students are required to continue to wear a face mask when attending our centres for courses and/or assessments (unless medically exempt).
  • Any models attending with students as part of VTCT assessment days will also be required to wear a fask mask (unless exempt).
  • Staff will continue to wear PPE & continue with strict hygiene and cleaning measures to maintain the safety and wellbeing of all who attend our centres.
  • If you are unwell and/or displaying any possible Covid symptoms or required to self-isolate, please do not attend our centres. Please contact our team at the earliest opportunity, at to reschedule your training who can then advise further.

We thank you for your co-operation with this and hope this will reassure you when attending for training or assessment. 

In line with both government regulations, and industry body guidance (ABT and The Guild of Beauty Therapists), beauty training providers may resume practical training as of 8th March 2021, as we are classed as an education institution. We resumed a limited number of our ‘non-contact’ training courses (where students can practice solely on training hand/head only to maintain social distancing, such as lash extension & nail courses) from 8th March and then resumed all courses following phase 2 of restrictions lifting on 12th April. We continue operating the strict Covid-secure measures introduced at all our centres from July 2020.

We take the health, safety and welfare of our students and visitors very seriously at The Beauty Academy. As part of our training courses, we have plans in place to ensure safety and hygiene standards are kept high to try to reduce the risks of infection and/or spreading of infection of the Covid-19 virus.

As part of these measures, we ask all students and visitors to our training centres and/or head office to kindly note and adhere to the following guidance;

  • To ensure they are not showing symptoms before travelling to centre or head office
  • They must not travel to centre or head office if any member of their household has symptoms or been required to self-isolate
  • They must consider vulnerable or shielded persons at their home, before leaving home
  • They must consider the type of transport used going to and from centres and/or head office and remember to travel safely

Upon arrival you will be given further guidance on hygiene and social distancing practices in place. Please ensure you remain within these practices for your safety and that of staff, other students and/or visitors to our centres and head office. If you have any questions regarding any of the above, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team on Freephone 0800 999 2277.

    Brilliant course. Tutor Leanne was so helpful and friendly and made me feel totally at ease. I was nervous as I have never done any beauty training before and she put me at ease straight away. Brilliant service and I will one hundred percent be using again. Thank you very much!!

    I made a last minute decision to attend the ‘dry manicure and gel polish’ course and so glad I did! The tutor (Donnamarie) was so passionate and inspiring that she gave me the confidence I needed. Everything was well explained and the group was small enough get the best out of the day.
