COURSE STRUCTURE

You will receive a thorough grounding in all aspects of the Beauty Therapist’s role, from learning the basics of anatomy and skin care through to detailed information on the proper use of make-up products, improving the appearance and condition of the nails, and the treatment of hair – including removal and lightening. The extensive section on skin care and facial treatments is one of our students' favourites, and the course also teaches you the necessary Health and Safety aspects of working both in a salon or for somebody else, and the considerations you need to take into account when operating on your own or in a client's home. You will also learn the important key areas relating to Professional Ethics and the way we need to conduct yourself in a professional salon – Salon Etiquette. In fact, there is little (if anything!) the course leaves out; there is no stone left unturned. By the time you complete it you'll be raring to go!

When you have successfully completed this course you will receive a Level 3 Certificate in Beauty Therapy from NCFE, who are one of the U.K.'s largest accreditation awarding bodies. Once you have this certification you will be able to further enhance your employability in the sector, industry or area of interest by continuing your studies to the next level if you wish.


All of our courses are accredited by NCFE and satisfy the requirements of the appropriate level of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). They recognise that the student has gained a good knowledge and understanding of a particular subject area, which is appropriate for many job roles. Many of them also result in qualifications on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF), which carry credits that can be accumulated towards higher level qualifications.


NCFE are regulated by the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual) in England, the Department for Children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills (DCELLS) in Wales, and the Council for Curriculum Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) in Northern Ireland.


Before enrolling on a course, students should make sure that they are following a course of study that results in formal recognition of their knowledge and skills by a reputable awarding body such as NCFE.

Can anyone do the course?

Anybody with a reasonable standard of general education will be able to cope with the academic demands of the course. If you can read and write well enough to complete a job application, and have a good grasp of basic maths (add, subtract and divide) you should have no problems. The course materials are written in simple everyday language and the answers to your assignments will be completed in the same style.

In addition to the comprehensive course materials provided, you will receive a Study Guide to assist you, and, of course, you will have the support of your tutor.

What’s actually in the course?

The course covers the areas of study listed above through detailed exploration of the subject matter. You will also receive tasks and prompts for further personal exploration, plus research to carry out. This will also help you to keep track of how much you have learned. There are plenty of examples in the course materials, but personal research is expected at this level, so be prepared to use your initiative to fully answer the assignments.

Is the course accredited?

Yes, the course is accredited by NCFE through our IIQ licence. Students will complete all the set assignments using the information the course material provides combined with personal research. To help you get to this stage, there are also a number of self-assessment exercises for each section.

Although the course is comprehensive and informative, we do expect you to carry out your own investigations. After all, if you are not prepared to do your own research, you should be asking yourself if this is the right subject choice for you!

What will I get from the course materials?

The course materials and accompanying tasks will help you to develop the necessary knowledge and confidence to successfully complete the tutor marked assignments. The tasks are designed to encourage you to apply your knowledge, and help you to develop relevant research and academic writing skills.

What level is the course at?

The Learning outcomes for the Beauty Therapy course have been benchmarked at Level 3, using Ofqual’sQualification and Credit Framework (QCF). Your work is not graded; assignments are simply identified as Pass or Referred. For assignments not passed at first attempt, your tutor will advise on any necessary improvements to be made to obtain a Pass on reworking.

Certificates will be issued by NCFE on successful completion of all the assignments.

How do I send in my work?

You submit your assignments one at a time for marking through our iLearn it Easy online portal. This enables your tutor to properly assess the standard and style of your work for each section, and give you feedback which will be used on your next assignment; a process of continuous improvement. On obtaining feedback and comment you will either move on to the next assignment or review or rework the one you submitted.

What happens if I fail an assignment?

Don't worry, your tutor give you some pointers as to where you could improve, and will ask you to resubmit your assignment once you have reworked it.

We will send you ALL the course materials. This consists of a folder and Study Guide, plus a package of bonus materials and items to enhance your learning experience.

Is there a time limit or any deadlines?

The course should be completed within 12 months, but can be extended for a small fee if you require more time. As a rough guide, depending on your circumstances and commitment, the course can be completed in about 100 study hours. There are no other deadlines to meet.

Is there a word count for my assignments?

There are generally no word counts given for the tutor marked assignments, but it is important that you demonstrate to your tutor that you have fully understood the questions; a comprehensive Study Guide is included with the course. Many students start slowly at first, particularly if it's some time since they carried out any study, but your tutor will give guidance to help and encourage you to improve.

Will the course help me get a job?

NCFE, the awarding body, is a highly respected organisation that imposes strict standards on its centres. Employers or further education providers should accept an NCFE certificate.

What if I don’t like the course? Can I send it back?

Yes, if you are not happy with the course and feel it is not for you, you can return it within 7 days in accordance with the terms and conditions on our web site: www.mydistance-learning-college.com.

Do I need a computer to take the course?

Yes, you will need access to email and the Internet to submit assignments and do research. You will also need to word process your assignments. If you do not have Microsoft Office (or a similar package), we recommend that students download Open Office, which is free to download and use.

Is the course paper-based or online?

The course is paper-based and comes in a sturdy folder. Alternatively, start your course immediately and save £££’s by studying exclusively online, with full access to your course materials and tutor support, studying has never been easier!

No Final Exam!

If the prospect of exams frightens the life out of you, there is even more good news. There is no final exam!

The low price of the course includes dedicated tutor support, regular critique and feedback, and all assignments are marked by one of our professional tutors. You can even pay by instalments if funds are tight.

What made you decide to become a beauty therapist?

I have always been interested in makeup – my earliest memories of playing with my mum’s lipsticks and powders (although I am sure she was far from impressed to find spilt powder and creams all over her dressing table!)

I went to college and completed up to level 3 in beauty therapy. At first, I wanted to open my own salon and also considered setting up my own mobile beauty business, but during my studies I had the opportunity to complete a module on special effects makeup.

I was always amazed by how real things like cuts and bruises looked on TV and in films, so I was really excited to study this. It was after this that I realised that I wanted to focus specifically on this. I undertook some work experience and was really fortunate to become involved in a short-film project and the opportunities have grown from there.

How much can I expect to earn?

The starting salary for newly qualified beauty therapists is around £12,000 per year, but as there are many opportunities available for beauty therapists, the salary can depend on where you work, the number of hours, etc. There are also often opportunities to earn additional money through tips and commission from the sale of additional products.

Salon managers can earn over £20,000 a year.

How many hours a week would I work?

Beauty therapists typically work around 30 – 40 hours a week. Those working in salons will often work 9am – 5pm (or similar patterns), Monday – Saturday. However, those with mobile beauty therapy services may also work evenings and Sundays and public holidays.
