Beauty Therapy
These are general qualifications that cover working in the Beauty industry and let you pick and choose from lots of options - from make-up to massage. They are ideal if you are not sure what you want to specialise in, or if you need a broad overview, perhaps to manage a salon of your own.

Hair and Media Make-up
If you would like to style models for photoshoots or perhaps work as a make-up artist for film or TV, these qualifications are an ideal way to build your skills. You will get creative with hair and make-up and can even choose options in studio photography.

Nail Enhancements
These qualifications give you the skills to pamper your clients in a nail salon. You will apply artificial nails and nail art, and learn to promote your services and give customers a great experience.

If you want a career in a spa, these are the qualifications for you. You might cover massage, electrotherapy, facial teatments and tanning treatments.

Beauty Consultancy
These qualifications cover the skills to advise customers on beauty, including make-up application, eyebrow shaping and other practical beauty techniques. They are great preparation for a career in a salon or on a make-up counter.

You learn with your training provider - perhaps through practical sessions, group discussions or assignments. You will use professional salon equipment to develop your skills.

You will be assessed by your training provider using assignments, practical task, exams or online tests.
