Level 2 Apprenticeship in Beauty Therapy


Apprentices will need to sit tests that cover the knowledge aspects of the programme and produce a portfolio of evidence which will be assessed by a qualified assessor in order to achieve the Level 2 Diploma for Beauty Professionals. They will undertake an End Point Assessment which consists of an online knowledge test and an observation by an Independent End-Point Assessor.

Home Study

Apprentices are required to meet target dates for completion of work set by their assessor throughout their programme; this will require some work to be completed in their own time.
