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 &/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 VTCT Qualification to comply with local authority licensing.

If you are new to beauty & want to gain employment in a salon, spa, nail bar or on a cruise liner; we would highly recommend the VTCT Level 2 &/or 3 Diploma Course Options as these encompass a full range of treatments to be able to offer.

For those already qualified & wanting to add on further skills or those who want to specialise in specific treatments, our Level 2 &/or Level 3 Award & Certificate options may be more suitable for your needs.

  • Established 1990: the Original Private Beauty Training School

    I have done a few courses at the Cambridge and London venues and loved all of them. Staff is very friendly and professional at the same time which makes it easy to learn the theory and also the techniques. Teachers pay attention to each student and gives honest advises and support. I highly recommend The Beauty Academy for everyone.
