The suggested process for completing this qualification is listed below:
Download and print the Training Manual. The Training Manual has been designed to give you the knowledge and understanding of the service you are providing. At the end of each chapter you will find recap questions to ensure that you have fully understood what you have read. The manual covers:
The Training Video has been created to give you the practical skills you require to complete the service at salon level. Watch the video and make notes on each stage. You can then have the video playing in the background whilst you practice. Try to use the video as a guide rather than following it step by step.
What You Will Need
In order to complete your qualification, you will need the correct materials. A kit can be purchased through UK Beauty Schools or you can source it independently. You will require:
Using the knowledge and understanding obtained from the Training Video, complete the practice diary, detailing the practice that you have completed. The purpose of the practice diary is to build your confidence and develop your technique so that you are completing a salon quality service for your Case Studies.
Your Case Studies are designed to get you used to the process that would be followed when in a salon environment. For each Case Study you will produce an Observation Record, before and after photos and client/therapist feedback.
The purpose of your final assessment/s is to demonstrate that you can complete a salon-quality service in the time allocated.
Your assignment is designed to show that you have the knowledge and understanding to support your new Nail skills. The assignment is to be completed on your eLearning account, using the Training Manual and independent research to assist you.

All with their own pros and cons, but as a company, we feel we need to offer our customers the flexibility of all three.
The really depends on what you're looking to do, if you're looking to treat friends, go mobile or run your business from home then we’d recommend a diploma by the Beauty Guild. However, if you were looking to work in a Salon or Spa most would require you to have an NVQ/VRQ qualification.
If you decide on the NVQ/VRQ qualification you'll also be required to attend an additional day for assessment, further to this you'll automatically receive a diploma qualification. More information will be given to you during your practical day at the School. Assessments are only available at Kent or Essex.
