Overview

This qualification is based on the national occupational standards for beauty therapy and includes all the required elements to work effectively as a beauty therapist.

Throughout this qualification, learners will develop their knowledge and understanding of relevant anatomy and physiology and health and safety. They will also develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to consult with clients whilst providing a range of beauty treatments including facial treatments and make-up applications.

In parallel, learners will develop their communication and customer service skills, all of which are valued highly by employers. Problem-solving, team working and research skills will also be developed.
