This is a specialised Foundation Course providing Access to Advanced Beauty Training, including Core Knowledge.

This course is based on a flexible learning option as well as thorough practical training to reinforce the necessary skills.
The course consists of 4 modules. Each module requires the student to pass relevant exams before progressing on to the next module. The practical part of module 4 (modules 1, 2, 3 are completely online and module 4 is part online, part practical) can be arranged after all required modules are completed successfully.

The Level 3 Beauty Therapy Foundation Course carries 45 credits and will qualify you for insurance cover. Some of these credits can be transferred to other courses if the subject matter overlaps. For example, if you have studied the necessary Health and Safety legislation in the Beauty and Aesthetics sector, you will not need to cover this in the same amount of detail for any additional course which covers this same material. For Level 3 Accredited Courses, certificates will be issued externally
Our Level 3 is suitable for Beauty Therapists with Level 2 Beauty Therapy qualifications or equivalent as well as highly motivated individuals without formal qualifications in beauty looking to start a career in the Beauty and Aesthetics sector. The course includes a substantial theory component and a four-day practical training session where you will be asked to demonstrate your competence in the treatment through a series of assessments and exams
