Course Description

Beauty Therapy NVQ Level 1 GCSE Points: 140 (5 D-G GCSE) What will I study? You will study the basic skills required to be a professional beauty therapist such as an introduction to facials, makeup, manicure, health and safety and how to deal with clients. You can also gain a certificate in Introduction to Therapies. You will need to be very interested in beauty therapy, have good communication skills and have a good standard of personal presentation. This course will involve a small amount of written work and the completion of a portfolio. How will I learn? You will learn through a mixture of theory and practical work. You will spend most of your time learning, practicing and working in a salon environment. It is a real working environment and you may work with paying customers who choose to use the college salon for all their beauty treatments. How will I be assessed? You will be continuously assessed by a mixture of practical, oral and written methods. All of the units must be successfully completed in order to achieve a full NVQ qualification. You will be given a work booklet which you will need to keep up to date with evidence of the work you have done. This is your proof that you have passed each of the relevant parts of the course and have been observed doing so by the tutors in the salon. How long will the course take? Half or one day a week for two years or as agreed with your school. Where can this course lead me when I finish school? This qualification could help your application to a full-time course at the college or you could continue to learn in a work-based environment. You could progress onto Level 2 Beauty Therapy.
