Course Overview

Gain basic beauty therapy knowledge and skills for your future career in the industry with this introductory level 2 course. Specifically, you will explore areas such as manicure, pedicure, photographic make-up, eyebrow shaping and basic skincare. You will also learn about health and safety practices.

Our teaching team is made up of industry experts in their field, all with a wealth of salon experience. Following on from this, you could continue to develop your skills by progressing to a level 3 course.

Entry Requirements

You must achieve Entry 3 in BKSB Maths and English. In addition, you will need to have good communication and dexterity skills, be keen to work with the public and have a professional attitude.

If you are a year 11 student applying for this programme, we will compare your GCSE results with the minimum target grades set for you by your school. This will help us decide whether this is your most suitable programme of study. Other students, including those from outside the area, will have an opportunity to discuss their qualifications and experience to make sure they too are studying at the right level. For some programmes, we might need to observe you carrying out certain practical tasks before we can make you an offer.

Qualification Obtained

Certificate in Hair and Beauty Skills (VRQ)

Essential Skills – English and Maths

If you achieve a grade 3 in GCSE Maths or English you will have to work towards re-sitting these subjects as part of your main study programme. At B&FC, this won’t delay your career journey because you’re working towards these subjects at the same time as your chosen subject.

Teaching and Learning Methods

Our expert tutors understand that everyone learns in different ways so they use a range of teaching methods to enable everyone to achieve their potential. A key method used is demonstration, which allows you to observe the practical application of skills before having a go yourself, on your peers and also on real clients in our working salons.

This 1 year course comprises group work as well as presentations. E-learning is a key element of all our programmes and we also use a range of online apps to support, enhance and motivate learning. Your tutors will support you with these technologies and also in preparing for exams.

Study hours for 16-18 year-olds will vary according to the amount of English and maths they need to cover – this will be calculated and confirmed at enrolment. The course incorporates periods of self-study (which your tutor will guide you on) and you will also need to devote additional time (outside of timetabled hours) to support your learning.
