Framework Overview

This programme is designed for students in a minimum of 30 hours employment per week within the Beauty Therapy industry.  You will be provided with a bespoke learning programme that meets the needs of you and your employer. The units within your diploma will be tailored to your workplace activities.  Your employer will agree a suitable time for your training at the College, so that you can build knowledge and skills even further and this, combined with the support and skills building that you receive in the workplace from your employer, will enable you to earn a wage while you become a competent therapist.  Treatments within this framework include Facials, Manicures, Pedicures, Waxing, Make-up and Eye Treatments, whilst using a selection of high tech specialist equipment within our fantastic salon facilities here at the College.

Student Case Study

Samantha Lawrence said “I loved my time at college and learned a lot.  I enjoyed my additional training with Dermalogica and I had great fun entering the college fantasy make up competition.  Together with my job and college I would recommend this way of learning as it’s a great way of starting my career in beauty therapy.”


Where an employer has less than 50 employees and is not liable to pay the Apprenticeship Levy, the training for Apprentices that are aged between 16 and 18 is fully funded.  For Apprentices who are aged 19 years or over at the start of their course, a one-off employer contribution fee is required.  (There is an incentive payment of £1,000 available for employers who are not apprenticeship Levy payers and who take on a 16-18 year old apprentice.  This incentive payment is payable as £500 after 3 months and £500 after 12 months).

Additional Costs

There are no additional costs for this training.
