Apprenticeships in Beauty Therapy with VTCT

For today’s Advent Calendar post we are continuing our exploration of the Beauty, Nails and Spa sector, this time looking at our VTCT Beauty Apprenticeships.

VTCT currently offers 3 Apprenticeships in Beauty Therapy, as an alternative way to gain entry into the beauty industry, allowing an apprentice to learn and earn at the same time.

These qualifications are:

• Beauty Therapist
• Nail Services Technician
• Beauty and Make-up Consultant

All three standards are independent and apprentices must be able to carry out detailed and confident consultations with clients, choose the most appropriate services and products, and ensure they deliver an outstanding service to their clients.

An apprenticeship is a combination of paid work and paid training in your chosen career. The paid work is called ‘on-the-job’ and the paid training is called ‘off-the-job’.

If you’re considering embarking on an apprenticeship, you will find our information sheet which you can download on the left.

Apprenticeships are offered exclusively through VTCT; if you are interested in finding out more about VTCT apprenticeships, click here to see the Apprenticeships section.

It’s important to know that depending on where you live, the availability and way apprenticeships are run does differ. In order to make sure you’re getting the information that is relevant to you based on your location, visit our Apprentice page on the VTCT website and select your region on the map.

If you are an iTEC training provider and are interested in delivering Apprenticeship qualifications, it couldn’t be easier to be able to do so. Contact your Business Development Manager to find out how to become dual approved.

The VTCT Level 2 Diploma for Beauty Professionals -Beauty Therapist is one of three beauty qualifications that an apprentice can study as part of a Beauty Apprenticeship. Make sure you keep following our advent calendar to learn about the other Apprenticeship Standards in the upcoming days.
