With this course, you’ll be preparing for a rewarding career, meeting people from all walks of life and giving them confidence in their everyday lives. You’ll begin by developing your product and treatment knowledge, learning how to provide treatments for your clients. From manicures and pedicures to makeup and brows (and everything inbetween), you’ll gain experience across all of the treatments you’ll need as a beauty specialist.The course is led by a team of passionate beauty therapists, with years of industry experience to share with you. You’ll be training in our very own salons, which are live environments where you can see what working in a spa or salon is really like. This is the perfect training ground to develop your confidence, working with your classmates before progressing to real clients of the Inspirations Salon. We look for students with a caring nature, who are open, friendly and take great pride in their work. Not only does this help relax clients but it also creates a supportive training environment, where you learn just as much from your classmates and friends on the course.Progression This is a 1year course designed to develop your technical skills and build your confidence as a beauty professional. The course will help prepare you for future study, where you can progress directly to the Level 3 qualification, or into employment. Alternatively, if you want to specialise in nails, you could also consider one of our Nail Technology courses instead.By the end of this course, you’ll be one step closer to working in the beauty industry, which could see you working in salons, cosmetic companies, spas, department stores or health clubs.
