As you can see above, the course consists of a number of different units. You can decide to complete these 5 units back to back in one working week, or space the training days out over a period of a few months. Following each unit you will need to complete a portfolio. This will involve home study, where you complete a number of case studies to show that you are competent at these treatments.

We are introducing 1 free practice and assessment day to your the NVQ Level 2 Beauty Therapy package. At the end of your 5 days training program, you will become eligible to use 1 full practice day at no extra cost! Our free practice day an open day format and has been designed to help you prepare for your case studies, portfolio and assessments once you have completed your portfolio. The practice day will have access to machines, equipment and all our facilities. You will also have access to our tutors, should you need guidance and advice. All this at no extra cost! You will however, need to bring your own model to practice on.

We will be scheduling Practice Days regularly – usually ahead of Assessment Days. This way you can plan to make the best use of your free practice day.

We teach the NVQ so it is very flexible around your lifestyle and requirements.  You can spread your training days out over a period of time or take them all together, and yo can complete your home study in your own time. Another bonus is that you can earn why you learn.

How Long is the course?

The NVQ Level 2 Beauty Therapy course consists of a number of different units covering different subjects. It is taught over 5 days, which is outside the free training and assessment day, which we offer with this course. You can use the free training day any time after completing 5 days of training for the NVQ Level 2 Beauty Therapy course.  You can choose to complete the 5 days training one after another, all within one week.  Alternatively if you think this might be too much information in a short time (many find this to be the case), you can spread the days out over a few months.   As you successfully complete each unit, you will receive the Carlton Institute Diploma in that subject, and you will then need to complete your portfolio and case studies at home before you gain the NVQ certificate. We recommend you take no more than 2 years over this but you could find you complete the NVQ in as little as 12 weeks.
