Activate Learning is a forward-thinking education group working across further and higher education, schools, apprenticeships and training. We transform lives through learning.
Every year, we successfully train many students in becoming fully-qualified beauty therapists. By choosing a career in this industry, you will have the opportunity to combine creativity with customer care; helping people to look and feel great. Beauticians are specialists in discussing and understanding client requirements, analysing and advising on skincare and beauty regimes, giving treatments, and applying cosmetics.
On this Level 2 course you will be supported by expert beauty tutors in gaining professional, hands-on training experience with real clients. You will also develop confidence and customer service skills within an industry-standard salon.
We will help you develop the skills you need to work in the beauty therapy industry, including:

You will watch demonstrations of all of your treatments and then practice on a partner. Teaching and learning methods will be a mix of: theory, self-directed study, research and practical client sessions. You will begin by working on each other and progress to models.
All of your theory classes will be taught with the aid of a work pack and may also include research whilst in class. The majority of tasks will be completed whilst in class so that you can have help and support in understanding what is required. All work packs and handouts will be put onto our virtual learning site Moodle so that you are able to download any information needed.
All practical assessments will be carried out on the general public as well as friends.
Instead of just being in college and learning the treatments, we are out there in real salons, getting to know the customers.”
