These, information packed, short courses are all career enhancing professional development programmes aimed at career professionals who already have successfully completed an RQF Beauty qualification.

Spray Tan & Lash Lift Classroom based - 1/2 Day Practical

More people than ever before are moving away from sunbeds and choosing to fake tan. We’re offering beauticians the chance to add to their portfolio of services. Take a short, intensive course that will help you to develop a sought after new skill. The course will train you to provide a fast and professional spray tanning service. Our salons are fully equipped with all the products and kit you need to get started. Learn how to use a HPLV spray gun to apply a flawless finish. You’ll carry out practical work in small groups, with the guidance of a supportive team of tutors.

We’re all searching for ways to speed up our morning beauty routine. Lash lifting is a popular treatment that straightens eyelashes from the root. With results that last for six weeks, the procedure is an effective alternative to using eyelash curlers. We’ve combined this course with our tanning training.

Female Intimate Waxing Classroom based - 1/2 Day Practical

Many clients prefer to visit a salon to get professionally waxed. Learning a variety of waxing techniques and styles will give you access to a wider customer base. Adding to your skills as a beautician will also increase your employability and look great on your CV.

Our female intimate waxing course teaches students how to carry out Brazilian and Hollywood waxes, which have become increasingly popular in recent years. To start this course, you’ll need to have some experience with waxing and a volunteer that you can bring to our salon to practice treatments on. You’ll train in a group of five or less, giving you the opportunity to ask your tutor any questions you have.

This short course is designed to give you an insight into the different treatment options that you could offer your clients. Develop your existing knowledge or build the confidence you need to train employees in waxing procedures.

Body Wrap & Threading Classroom based - 1/2 Day Practical

Non-invasive weight loss treatments are in demand. We provide a training course for beauticians who want to expand the range of services they offer. Body wrapping is a procedure designed to help clients to lose inches and tighten skin. There are different types of body wrap, including detoxifying and hydrating. Use our modern salon facilities to practice your technique. Find out how to apply the wrap and products and take client measurements. You’ll also discover how to mix the perfect formula for individual customers.

Grooming is one expense that women refuse to cut back on. You can maximise the services you offer your clients by combining body wrap training with a short threading course. This hair removal technique is growing in popularity because it’s quick and less painful than waxing. Learn how to cross two pieces of thread to remove hairs. Improve your skills in creating well-defined edges and shapes.

Thai Compress Classroom based - 1/2 Day Practical

Take your beautician experience to the next level and train to give a Thai compress massage. A practice that originated from Thai healers, this traditional treatment uses heated herbal compresses alongside massage. The procedure is used to encourage relaxation and detoxification. Some clients find that the hot compresses even help to alleviate back problems. The herbs give skin a boost, while the massage helps to combat stress and improve circulation.

To successfully complete this course, you’ll need some experience of common massage techniques. Train with us and update your massage skills. An expert tutor will support you and offer guidance. Working in a small group, you’ll have the chance to make the most of our beauty facilities.

Diversifying the treatments that you can offer will impress employers at spas and salons. You can also use your new knowledge to set up your own business or add to the list of services you offer.

Ear Candling & Gel Polish Classroom based - 1/2 Day Practical

Discover the benefits of ear candling through our comprehensive training course. The therapeutic treatment is used to treat many common conditions in the throat, nose and ear. A hollow candle is placed in the ear and lit at the other end. Many clients use this procedure to draw out toxins. You’ll learn how to apply the candle and how to use pressure point massage. Health and safety is crucial, both for clients and beauticians. Find out how to carry out the treatment without putting anyone at risk.

Combine our ear candling course with gel polish training. Chipped nail polish is something that women find frustrating. Clients want a long-lasting nail colour, that looks perfect for weeks, not days. Gel nail polishes are different from acrylic polishes because they are set under a LED or UV lamp. Train to apply the polish over natural and false nails, providing colour that lasts up to three weeks.

Starting Your Own Business Classroom based - 1/2 Day Practical

The beauty industry is worth £17 billion in the UK and employs 1 million people. If you’re looking for a flexible work-life balance, then there’s never been a better time to become your own boss. Start a new career by opening your own salon, or offering mobile make-up services.

Many start-ups fail in their first year and that’s why we offer the training you need to successfully set up and run a business. Study in your own time, from home and work through a range of modules that provide practical help.

This qualification is designed to give you the tools to confidently manage your company day-to-day. The course will support you as you write a business plan, choose a location and select a bank. Find out more about tax legislation, including how to keep records and complete a tax return. You’ll also increase your skills by learning basic bookkeeping.

With the guidance of a personal tutor via phone, email and Skype, you can build up a knowledge base and grow your business. Take the opportunity to capture your share of the beauty market.
