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 Level 2 and/or Level 3 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.

“VTCT awards 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.

If you are considering employment in one of these sectorssalon, 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.

*The VTCT course prices include training, coursework, standard assessment and registration fees. Kits are required towards coursework and assessments; these are not included in the course price.

Prices shown include all exam fees and includes VAT

Work as Employed

A VTCT course is the right courses for you! If you want to work for someone else or just to start to gain your qualifications then our Level 2 and/or Level 3 courses would be an excellent choice.

If you wish to open your own salon premises or have a permanent treatment room from home, you will also usually require a Qualification to comply with local authority licensing.

Work as Self Employed

The VTCT courses are not necessarily the best place to start. Quick Start Diploma courses are usually more suited to this training route. 

The courses cover the most popular and most requested treatments in order to give you a comprehensive treatment range, which ensures that your clients will book with you time and time again. You can find out more about our Quick Start Diploma courses.

Payment options suitable for everyone

Our friendly advisors are on hand on Freephone 0800 9992277 to assist you in booking your place over the telephone, or online. Depending on your choice of course we can offer a choice of payment options. See below for further information.

By making payment in full, you can secure your course place and enjoy the greatest flexibility to book all of your training days at your preferred training centre, in the best way to suit you – whether that’s as a consecutive block (subject to availability) or taken at your own pace. Book securely online 24/7, or call our friendly Advisors by book by phone.

 

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 19.9%, 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.

This is the perfect solution for financing our courses over £799 or to borrow more than just the course fee to cover starter kits, insurance and other setting up expenses for your new career/business.

    I attended the Spa body massage course which I thoroughly enjoyed. Our tutor Lisa was lovely and made the course very enjoyable and learnt a lot from this 2 day course. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanted a career in massage therapy. I will be booking more courses in the future with The Beauty Academy. Thank you!

    I’m currently doing my VCTC Level 2 & 3 with The Beauty Academy in Birmingham and I am loving all of my courses. I’ve had the pleasure of having both Yvonne and Katy for courses  and they’re both attentive to myself and the other students, I feel very supported… You simply cannot fault the phenomenal tutors. The support team for the coursework is great and they’re always there to help! Chloe and Vicky at head office have both been extremely helpful in my journey so far. Thank you to everyone at The Beauty Academy.
