Course Overview
This qualification has been specifically designed for the 16-19 age group, and will develop the knowledge and skills to prepare learners for employment as a junior beauty therapist. Learners will have their beauty therapy skills assessed in a real working environment.

This qualification includes all the required elements to work effectively as a beauty therapist including: facial skincare, enhancement of eyebrows and eyelashes, waxing services, manicure, pedicure, effectiveness at work, health and safety and promoting additional products and services to clients.

Learners will further develop their understanding and skills base by selecting a number of optional specialist units which include: ear piercing, make-up services, spa operations, threading, skin camouflage, salon reception duties - the full list of optional units is presented in the learner Record of Assessment book (RoA) (specification). This qualification's structure provides learners with the flexibility to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills depending upon their designated career pathway as a junior beauty therapist.
This is one of two VTCT qualifications in beauty therapy at Level 2. Whilst both qualifications qualify learners to become beauty specialists and gain employment at a junior level, this qualification requires learners to work in a commercial beauty salon, whereby assessments must be carried out on real paying clients in line with commercial service times.
Entry onto this qualification can be via previous attainment of a Level 1 qualification in beauty therapy and/or a successful skills test and interview.
You will also have to be employed with a suitable employer in the Beauty sector
Career opportunities as a junior beauty therapist exist in a variety of contexts, including:

– Commercial beauty salons
– Independent/self-employed/mobile/home-based settings
– Beauty retail concessions
