Begin your career as a Beauty Therapist

In the UK the beauty industry employs over a million people and the industry is worth over 17 billion.

Once qualified as a beauty therapist the career opportunities are endless.

The beauty industry is growing day by day and the progression for opportunities and earning potential is huge.

Becoming a beauty therapist will allow you to have a job that is very flexible. You will have the opportunity to work from home, mobile, salon, cruise ships, internationally or open your own salon.

To start your career what do you need?

You need to have a qualification that is recognised by a registered governing body. This will satisfy any insurance requirements.

Many employers seek Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications as their minimum requirement for employment and now insurance companies are demanding NVQ Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications, especially if you plan to perform laser hair removal or advanced cosmetic treatments.

To progress onto NVQ Level 3 beauty you will need a minimum of NVQ Level 2 in Facial skin care.
