Beauty Therapy Apprenticeship (Level 2 Intermediate and Level 3 Advanced) at Blackburn College

Course description

Fancy working in an industry where every day is different? Dream of travelling the world or working in the media? Want to work with people one-to-one to enhance their appearance and well-being? Then a Beauty Therapy Apprenticeship is the pathway for you. To undertake an Apprenticeship in Beauty Therapy, you need to be an excellent communicator and be able to deal with people from every age group, social background, ethnic background, occupation and gender. You should be diplomatic, sympathetic and have the ability to listen. The Beauty Therapy industry is an amazing product that will be here forever and the Apprenticeship will give you skills that will never go away.

If you are aged 16-24, and you don't think you have the necessary 'work-ready' skills, we also offer Traineeships. Our 8 week courses provide the essential work preparation training, English, maths and work experience needed to secure your place on an Apprenticeship.

Course content

  • Monitor procedures to safely control work operations
  • Contribute to the planning and implementation of promotional activities
  • Provide body massage treatments
  • Provide Indian head massage
  • Carry out massage using pre-blended aromatherapy oils
  • Provide stone therapy treatments

Entry requirements

There are no specific entry requirements to study an Apprenticeship at Blackburn College. You will have an initial assessment when you come in for an interview, and this will show the level of English and maths qualifications, known as functional skills, that you will study alongside your apprenticeship.

Blackburn College will work with applicants to help find a suitable employer where possible. However we always advise anyone looking to undertake an apprenticeship to be actively seeking employment for themselves too.


You will be assessed in one or more of the following ways:

  • Course work
  • Exams
  • Oral questioning
  • Portfolio of evidence
  • Practical demonstration
  • Written examination

Future opportunities

Once you have completed the Level 2 Intermediate Apprenticeship, you will be equipped with the necessary skills and qualifications to secure employment within the Beauty industry. You can also progress onto the Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship to become a truly proficient professional.
