Once you have completed your Diploma course, your qualification material will be added to your elearning account. You will print out the relevant documents and create your portfolio. At UKBS, we use an independent learning structure so that you are able to work at your own pace, around your current commitments. You will work through the following at home to build your knowledge, skills, timings and confidence:

  • Practice Diary
  • Case Studies
  • Assignment/s

During this time you will have access to our NVQ Coordinator who can be contacted for any help, assistance or guidance.

Once the above has been completed, you would then return to the school to complete your live assessments and paper test/s. These will be spread across a minimum of 2 days and will take place at Kent or Essex. When attending your assessment days you must wear a full beauty uniform or all black with enclosed shoes, short, natural nails (gel polish is fine but no extensions). You must bring your completed portfolio and something to write with. You must provide your own models which should be arranged according to the ranges that you need to complete in your qualification. For most units, 3 different models are required (however some require 4 or 5 – please contact the NVQ Coordinator if unsure). If you are completing multiple units, you would follow this structure for each unit.
