Description

The aim of the Focus Awards Level 2 Award in Skin Care and Facial Treatments (RQF) is to provide learners with the knowledge and understanding to safely provide facial treatments to clients. During the qualification learners will learn the skills required to practice health and safety in a salon environment, gain suitable communication skills to care for clients and learn about the facial anatomy and physiology, legislation of products for skin care, prepare for and provide skin care 
information and facials to clients. 

What do I do now?

Once the booking has been made, we will send you a Course Confirmation email which will contain your login details for our elearning platform. Here you will find your pre-course theory which is to be completed before attending your practical training. Using this blended learning style allows you to spend more time on the practical elements whilst at the school with your tutor. 

What happens on the day?

On Day 1, once you have got settled with a refreshment, we will start the course with general house keeping and important H&S briefing. You tutor will then recap the key points of your online theory and answer any questions you have to ensure you are confident in your understanding of the treatment you are learning. During the demonstration of the treatment, feel free to make notes, ask questions and/or take photos if you wish. You will then be able to demonstrate your ability to complete the treatment on your model/s (refer to model timings above). Your tutor will be there to assist and guide you at every step of the way. All courses will be wrapped up with a recap session, giving you the opportunity to ask any questions, ensuring that you are 100% confident to start practicing from home. In between your sessions at the school, you will begin building your portfolio of evidence in the form of a Practice Diary and  Assignments. Day 2 is your opportunity to review anything from Day 1, complete some additional practice and go for your first assessment. This will develop your new skills and build your confidence so that you are ready to complete your final live assessments which will be done under the observation of our highly skilled Assessors on Day 3.

What happens after?

Upon successful completion of the course, your portfolio of evidence will be signed off by your Assessor and then handed to your IQA for a quality check. Upon a successful quality check, your certificate will be requested from Focus Awards. Once your certificate arrives, we will be in contact with you to arrange collection. We advise giving yourself time to build your confidence and perfect your skills by practicing on friends and family to start with. When you feel ready, you can go ahead and start building your client base. All course completed at UK Beauty Schools comes with lifetime support.

FAQ

Where is the training conducted?
All courses are held at our Beauty Schools located in Chatham, Kent. Parking is available opposite in Union Square Pay & Display (Behind GALA Bingo).

When do we gain access to online training?
Students receive access to our online training area before attending the school. This allows them to complete the theory at their own pace, ensuring better absorption of information. It also maximises practical time, enabling tutors to demonstrate best practices and address any questions.

Diploma vs. NVQ/VRQ qualification difference?
The choice depends on your goals. For personal use or home-based businesses, a diploma by the Beauty Guild is recommended. If working in a Salon or Spa is your aim, an NVQ/VRQ qualification is usually required. Opting for NVQ/VRQ involves an additional assessment day, automatically awarding a diploma qualification.

Upgrading to VRQ/NVQ (VTCT)?
After completing the Diploma day, home study includes a Practice Diary, Case Studies, and an Assignment to demonstrate knowledge. Access to online documents and support from our NVQ Coordinator is provided. Assessments and written exams occur at the school, with home study taking 2-8 weeks.

Can a diploma be upgraded to an NVQ later?
Yes, an upgrade is possible for specific treatments. An additional fee is applicable for the upgrade, and all necessary materials for the NVQ qualification are provided. Assessment day scheduling at the school follows.

Can insurance be obtained with a Diploma certificate?
Insurance companies accept both Diploma and NVQ certificates. Our specialised insurance scheme through Salonsafe offers tailored coverage for qualified students, encompassing treatment risk as standard.

Refund policy for course cancellations?
Refunds depend on circumstances and notice given (refer to T&C). Medical notification is required for illness-related refunds. No refund is possible if online theory has been accessed/completed.

Is home study required?
Yes, home study includes online theory and practical practice after the course. Approximately 6-8 treatments are recommended for enhanced confidence. Free refreshers are offered within 6 months if additional training is needed.

Class size and model requirements?
We keep class sizes small (around 4 students) for personalised attention. Some courses may require models, and for NVQ/VRQ, students provide their own models for Assessment Days.

Attire and standards for attending courses?
Students must adhere to professional standards in attire, including a tunic or black top with trousers, covered shoes, tied-back hair, and well-kept hands/nails.

Course finish time and requirements?
Finish times vary; check the course on the website for details. Students may need to bring a pen and paper, but all materials are provided.

Accreditation and certificates?
Courses are approved and accredited by The Guild of Beauty Therapists (Diploma), VTCT (VRQ), or UKBA (UK Beauty accreditation). Certificates are issued based on meeting standards for theory and practical delivery.

Certificate issuance timeline?
Diploma eCertificates are emailed within 7 days after the course. Hard copies can be purchased for £10. NVQ certificates are issued by the awarding body.

Finance options for courses?
Yes, various finance options are available during checkout.
