About the Level 3 Gentle Touch Aromatherapy Certificate

Out of all of the complementary therapies, aromatherapy is one of the most commonly practised and widely appreciated. This is likely because of its therapeutic and cosmetic benefits and its positive effects on psychological wellbeing. This Level 3 course aims to provide students with an introduction to aromatherapy and give them the skills to practise it independently.

In order to complete the qualification, students will need to work through 10 engaging distance learning modules. These units cover everything from the history of aromatherapy and the human body, to essential oils and how they work. The course also teaches students how to use aromatherapy in the home and garden, and how to use it to combat stress.

Who should study this course?

This online distance learning qualification is a great starting point for budding aromatherapists. However, it is also suitable for individuals with a general interest in aromatherapy or those who work in beauty therapy and want to expand on their knowledge.

Learners do not require any prior qualifications before they enrol on this home study programme. All we ask is that students are interested in learning about aromatherapy and that they have the motivation to succeed via distance learning.

What happens after the course?

Once students have completed this Level 3 aromatherapy course, they will have a fundamental understanding of aromatherapy and how it works. This knowledge will allow students to begin practising as aromatherapists and developing a client base.

Some students may choose to build on their knowledge and study towards a Level 4 qualification with Stonebridge. Others may decide to channel this new knowledge into their lives or their existing careers. Careers which relate to this course include:

  • Aromatherapist
  • Masseuse
  • Beauty therapist

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards’ Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges have undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements. ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external inspectors to ensure quality is consistently met. A regular review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
