Beauty Therapy - NVQ Level 2 Diploma
About the course
Are you looking for a qualification to launch your career in the beauty industry? This course could be just what you need.
You will need to have a keen interest in beauty therapy, a good reference, a good level of spoken and written English as well as good communication skills. You will also need to carry out an assessment and will be interviewed.
You will study a range of beauty techniques, developing the skills you need to carry out facials, hair removal, manicures and pedicures, and eyebrow and eyelash treatments.
You will learn about the day-to-day running of a beauty salon, including health and safety procedures, customer relations and reception duties.
You will have plenty of opportunity to practise what you are learning on real customers in the College's own salon.
You will be assessed on the practical work that you do in the beauty salon, as well as through observations, an e-Portfolio, on-line testing, assignments and oral questioning.
On successful completion of the course, you will achieve the NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Beauty Therapy.
You can then develop your skills further through a range of Level 3 courses in beauty, spa therapies or make-up artistry.
