If you are looking to start a career within the beauty industry, or perhaps you are an existing therapist working from currently home or mobile, our internationally recognised VTCT and City & Guilds Qualifications will enable you to gain employment in positions ranging from a holistic therapist within a spa to working as a beautician on a cruise-ship.
There are varied requirements for those looking to gain employment in these sectors, compared with being self-employed, and these may influence which training route is best for you.
“Qualifications from Awarding Bodies such as VTCT and City & Guilds are highly-valued both in the UK and internationally for excellence with a longevity of recognition amongst employers within the industry.”
Employers highly value accredited qualifications as they demonstrate the therapist’s competence to achieve a recognised beauty training award that complies with industry-level standards. VTCT awards beauty therapy are based on the National Occupational Standards (NOS) and recognised by the UK’s leading professional association, the British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology (BABTAC). City & Guilds awards are recognised by both BABTAC & FHT for professional memberships.
If you are considering employment in one of these sectors: salon, spa, nail bar, cruise ship, or want to establish your business in a salon or permanent treatment room, you are required to have appropriate qualifications to demonstrate that you are trained to an industry-approved level of service, to comply with local authority licensing.
Our VTCT and City & Guilds qualifications are available within all the most popular levels and subject areas within the beauty industry. You can select a Level 2 and/or Level 3 award from either awarding body with the confidence that it will spring board you to the career you’ve always dreamt of.
*The Qualification course prices include training, coursework, standard assessment and registration fees (exclusive of VAT). Kits are required towards coursework and assessments; these are not included in the course price.
