This course is for complete beginners. The purpose of the course is to ensure that students can be employed upon successful completion of the course. A salon setting will also be provided in the beauty school during the course to allow learners to experience working with actual clients before they participate in the workplace placement. There are 2 extra modules added to this course which are currently essential to have in a salon; shellac nails, and a brow and lash qualification.
This is a blended learning course. All learners must have access to a laptop or pc to enable them to attend Zoom classes when necessary and to study each week on Moodle where all eLearning resources are available. This is compulsory and not optional. Learners’ work will be monitored on Moodle and if not complete they will be unable to take the final exam.
Learners will also need to complete 5 days’ work experience in a salon.
The main skills the learner will learn are:
- Skincare analysis and consultation
- Skincare treatments to include masks, massage and full cleansing
- Facial massage
- Full manicure and pedicure treatments
- Brow sculpt, wax and shape combined with lash lift
- Shellac nails
Upon completion of the course, learners will be able to work in a salon that offers a combination of beauty treatments.
