Assessed both practically and by means of GOLA online tests which are taken at the end of each unit. Practical assessments are performed on paying clients and must be completed in a commercially acceptable timescale. Evidence from these will go towards building a portfolio of evidence. Some other written work will be required for projects and assignments.


You can progress into an apprenticeship or employment working for a company or self-employed. Many of our former students secured employment in local and national salons, cruise ships and some have started their own businesses.

There are also opportunities for continued study in further and higher education based around the differing pathways within the sector at the next level. It is recommended to progress to Beauty Therapy Level 3.
