Beauty Therapy Courses

We have a wide range of flexible courses on offer in the beauty industry. Our team of qualified tutors can guide you through a range of approved qualifications, allowing you to choose specific study programmes, and to give you a qualification that you can gain insurance with to start earning money and building your portfolio.

Our courses are set up as group bookings with set dates pre-scheduled, or on a 1-2-1 basis, with dates scheduled directly with the learner (additional charges may apply). Large group bookings are available with a discount for 4 or more learners upon request. Most courses have a case study requirement. This allows learners to submit examples of their practice for further suppor prior to certification. If the course is longer than 1 day, we always aim to have a minimum of 1 week between sessions to allow you to complete research, study and case studies, unless specifically stated.

All accredited courses have scheduled time for work on clients, and will have an online assessment or case studies to be submitted online prior to certification.

  • Health, safety and legisative information relevant to the treatment
  • Consultation requirements

  • Treatment, client and therapist preparation
  • Treatment procedure, including demonstration and work on clients
  • Aftercare and contra-actions

Courses can be scheduled at our training centres, or at a suitable venue of your choice* (on-site training – group discounts upon request, restrictions apply). We are currently working to bring you great prices for your training kits. Please contact the centre for information and prices of kits we have available.

Our VTCT packages include the cost of registration and examination. We are able to offer full training and assessment packages, or assessment only packages.

If you are thinking of joining one of our Advanced Learner Loan funded packages, you will need to attend more regularly. Details of these can be found on our dedicated page for STC Colchester . Look out for the logo next to the title of a course to see if funding is available
