Overview

Our second study pathway provides an alternative to classroom learning. Combine home study with on-site experience and benefit from the support of a personal tutor. This learning option is designed to suit anyone who enjoys setting their own pace. Work through the course theory, with advice from our team via phone, email and Skype. Once you’re ready, you can take practical lessons at our salon. Train using the very latest technology, in a supportive and professional environment.

When your course is complete, you’ll have a Level 3 qualification, listed on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). You can apply for insurance and become a member of a professional beauty association. You could then go on to work as a beauty therapist in a salon or spa. Former students have since started their own companies offering beauty therapy services.

Blended learning is adaptable to your lifestyle and cuts the travel costs of attending classroom lessons.
