What is the difference between short diploma courses and VTCT courses?

Short diploma courses are for therapists wanting to work mobile or on friends and family.  They are recognised within the UK and an insurable qualification with certain insurance companies.

VTCT courses are internationally recognised qualifications that involve multiple choice end tests and assessments but hold a higher recognised status and will enable you to work in a salon or spa.

How is the award achieved?

You will come to the academy to learn the practical part of facials and be taught the various techniques to learn a luxury facial.  You will have looked through the virtual platform and be able to discuss with your tutor and peers the knowledge behind facials and how you can benefit your client with their skin care regime.

Do I need a model?

Yes, you will need to bring a model with you to practise on.

Is a kit included in the price?

Kits are not included but please see the kit page for our recommended supplier.  You  will need to bring this on the day so we can go through the products with you.

When will I receive my certificate?

Once you have completed the course your certificate will be issued.
