The Award in Facial Massage and Skin Care is a qualification that has been specifically designed to develop your practical skills in how to provide facial skin care.

Underpinning this qualification you will develop a sound knowledge of health and safety practices in a salon environment and how to promote client care and communications in beauty related industries. You will also develop an underpinning knowledge and understanding of the practical skills learned throughout this qualification.

The purpose of this qualification is to develop your skills in beauty therapy to a high level of occupational ability, to enable you to perform your own salon services.

The course is run across three days where you will cover all theory, anatomy and physiology, and most importantly, the practical routines for a full facial treatment.

Entry Requirement:
No previous experience is needed to enroll on this course.
Once enrolled on the course we will send you an essential manual within 72 hours, which will detail all the information you need and help you to prepare prior to the day of your course.
What will I receive when I complete the course, assessments and exams?
Once you have passed your exams, completed three practical assessments and your written portfolio work, you will gain an accredited VTCT NVQ Level 2  in Facial Massage and Skin Care.
What could this qualification lead to?
This NVQ qualification will allow you to work as a qualified beauty massage therapist.  As the NVQ is an industry wide recognised qualification, you will have opportunities in a wide range of areas such as beauty salons, health spas and day spas or the ability to work for yourself as an independent therapist.
If you don’t want to gain the NVQ then our Mi:Skin certificates are accredited with Professional Beauty, meaning you can gain liability insurance to carry out your treatments. Ideal for self employed mobile therapists.
This will involve the completion of 4 case studies at home and completion of your Mi:Skin Training workbook. On successful completion you will receive your accredited course certificate.

You will be assessed on your knowledge and practical routines during the days you are in class with us. You will then be required to practice your new skills at home and provide three written case studies, detailing your practice treatments done at home. Upon completion of these case studies, you will be required to attend our NVQ Assessment Days where you will perform four massage treatments on clients (we organise clients for you) whilst being assessed by an NVQ Assessor. You will also need to sit two Exam Papers with us to evidence your anatomy and physiology knowledge.
