Beauty Therapy Level 2 at Achievement Training Ltd

Course description

The hairdressing, beauty and personal grooming industry continues to grow and is thought to be worth approximately £ 5.25 billion per year. It has been estimated that approximately 20% of UK salons have job vacancies and lack skills for treatments that we offer such as nail art, microdermabrasion, ear candling, self tanning, make-up services, Indian head massage, eyelash perming and non-surgical face lifting .

Courses start at various times throughout the year and evening courses are also available subject to demand. Assistance towards funding of tuition fees is available subject to status although all learners are required for pay for kit and consumables. Further details are available at induction.
