Course description

Level 3 Beauty Therapy

Prior study is not a prerequisite – you just need a passion for the subject matter!

You will receive a thorough grounding in all aspects of the Beauty Therapist’s role, from learning the basics of anatomy and skin care through to detailed information on the proper use of make-up products, improving the appearance and condition of the nails, and the treatment of hair – including removal and lightening. The extensive section on skin care and facial treatments is one of our students’ favourites, and the materials also teach you the necessary Health and Safety aspects of working both in a salon or for somebody else, and the considerations you need to take into account when operating on your own or in a client’s home. You will also learn the important key areas relating to Professional Ethics and the way we need to conduct yourself in a professional salon – Salon Etiquette. In fact, there is little (if anything!) the materials leave out; there is no stone left unturned. By the time you complete it you’ll be raring to go!.

Suitability - Who should attend?

A reasonable level of literacy is required, but there are no entry restrictions.

You just need a keen interest in the subject, and will ideally have studied the subject or ancillary disciplines at a lower level if you want to progress quickly.

Non-Regulated Qualification Endorsed by Focus Awards under the FQP Scheme

This is a non-regulated qualification endorsed by Focus Awards under their Focus on Quality Provision (FQP) Scheme.

The FQP scheme is designed to give endorsement to non-regulated qualifications in a wide range of subjects. On successful completion you will receive a Focus Awards Certificate of Achievement and a certificate of completion from Distance Learning Plus.

Although the materials are comprehensive and informative, we do expect you to carry out your own investigations. After all, if you are not prepared to do your own research, you should be asking yourself if this is the right subject choice for you!

Although, there are no entry requirements, you do need a reasonable level of literacy to be able to both understand the concepts introduced, and get the most out of the materials.
