Course information

The difference between qualifications. Diplomas vs  NVQ/VRQ qualifications. 

This depends on what you are looking to do, if you are looking to carry out treatments on friends and family, go mobile or run your business from home then we would recommend our diploma courses accredited by the ABT / CPD. 

However, if you are looking to work in a Salon or Spa most would require you to have an NVQ/VRQ qualification. PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR LOCAL AUTHORITY TO SEE WHAT THEY REQUIRE.

If you decide on the NVQ/VRQ qualification you will also be required to attend an additional day/s for assessments, further to this you will automatically receive a diploma qualification. More information will be given to you during your practical day at the Academy.
