Benefit od this course
A VTCT Level 2 Diploma in Beauty is becoming the industry-required standard and is recognized in many sectors of this lucrative industry.

You will learn a wide range of practical skills, including deeply relaxing facial massages, precision brow techniques and the basics of make-up application.
Whilst you are perfecting your practical skills during training, you will also be consolidating your theoretical knowledge with our comprehensive study material, answering written questions in your electronic workbooks to submit as coursework. You will also be practising the skills that you have learnt at our training centre on models (friends/family) at home, gradually building a portfolio of treatments to submit as your practical coursework.
Our assessment process will ensure that your techniques, from hygiene requirements to attention to detail, are at a satisfactory industry level, and re-affirm the skills learnt during your practical training.
This exciting course is hands-on, provides you with in-depth detail on a range of beauty treatments and is designed to prepare you to begin your career within the industry. The qualification not only provides you with extensive career opportunities, but it is also internationally recognized and demonstrates your ability to work to an industry-standard level of practice.
Course entry requirement
AHBT diploma courses are suitable for complete beginners and do not require any prior learning to be able to train with us; many of our students are not beauty trained and are looking to start up a business in the industry. We welcome students of all abilities, whether you are looking to learn a new skill from scratch or currently working as a therapist and looking to refresh your knowledge of particular treatments.
Students will need to have previously achieved GCSE English or equivalent to ensure they have a good command of spoken and written English to be successful within the VTCT qualification. Students will need access to a pc to complete coursework and online exams.
You are required to give and receive treatments as part of this course, with students working upon each other so no models are required on training days. All products and tools are provided for the training days at the centre when you attend. No kit is required to complete the training days, nor included in the course fee.
On the training days, you only need to bring a hand and bath towel for your personal use, a completed enrolment form and cold food for your lunch (e.g. sandwich/salad).
We do provide study materials to assist you in the completion of your written coursework & in preparation for your assessments.
