This apprenticeship develops skills in undertaking a range of beauty treatments.
A typical role is Junior Beauty Therapist.
It covers the development of skills in:
- administering a wide range of treatments
- client consultation and communication
- personal presentation
- understanding what drives business success
Apprentices are required to have a minimum of five GCSEs at grade 3 / D or above including English and Maths or NVQ 1 plus two Functional Skills at Level 1.
It is helpful if apprentices have experience in their chosen field but this is not essential.
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.
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.
Apprentices need to be employed for a minimum of 30 hours per week, with an employer who is willing to support the candidate through the apprenticeship. For those not currently in suitable employment, Newbury College can provide a list of current apprenticeship vacancies.
Apprentices will have the opportunity to progress onto a Level 3 Apprenticeship in Beauty Therapy.
Fees and Additional Costs
Apprentices will spend time attending classes in college, typically delivered weekly during term time.
