We understand that you may already have a busy life and fitting in your study schedule could be a challenge. That’s why we have created this course with the utmost flexibility. You can make a schedule that suits you being assured that you will have support throughout from a dedicated personal tutor.

Complete your theory in the privacy and comfort of your own home and then book a block of practical sessions at one of our state-of-the-art salons. They involve 10 consecutive days (Mon-Fri over two weeks) and run regularly throughout the year in each location. So if doing 10 consecutive days is difficult you can book in and cover any missing practical days at a future date. 

Rest easy knowing we will work with you to find the most convenient solution.

At a location to suit you

We can offer the practical training at 5 different salon locations, these are:

  • Brentwood (Essex)
  • Birmingham
  • London
  • Manchester
  • Bristol



Once you’ve completed your course, you’ll be awarded a Level 3 on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (51 credits) by Innovate Awarding.

You can also continue your studies and go on to specialise in any number of areas, like spa, nails or make-up, increasing your knowledge and skills, before entering more specific areas like TV or the ‘medi-spa’ sector.

As a UK recognised qualification, this could also be your ticket to working for several organisations who have a global reach, for example Steiner, Marc Warner, and several Spa chains, like Six Senses Spas, who recruit UK qualified therapists to their different locations.
