Advanced Apprenticeship

"Our Reputation is our Students Success"

We take great pride in offering our students one of the worlds’ leading Beauty Advanced Apprenticeship courses. Throughout your two years at college you will learn everything that you need to know to become a very employable and highly skilled professional beauty therapist. 

What we offer

We have spent 30 years tailoring this course to give you the best possible start to your career. The Advanced Apprenticeship is open to 16-18 year old's with limited availability for 19-24 year old's. Nowhere else will you benefit from the same level of exposure to high class facilities combined with small tutorial style teaching and extensive salon experience. We are one of the only providers who receives Direct Government Funding. 

Real salon experience

You will spend three or four working days in a salon that is suited to you. This invaluable time will allow you to perfect beauty treatments on a wide variety of clients giving you the opportunity to create the foundations and build your very own returning client base. 


A Traineeship is designed for students who are not quite ready to undertake an Apprenticeship programme. This allows them to work in a salon one day a week to gain experience and build their confidence in a work place environment. A Traineeship can last up to 6 months until the student is ready to enter onto the Apprenticeship programme. 

What you leave with

You will graduate with an Advanced Apprenticeship in Beauty Therapy consisting of NVQ Levels 2 and 3 along with functional skills in Maths and English at Level 2 if you didn’t receive the GCSE’s that you had hoped for. 

Not forgetting that you will have gained two years employment in a salon and more than likely be leaving with a full time job.
On completion of your course you can look forward to a very special glitzy graduation ball. It is an evening for your family, friends and peers to congratulate you on your success.

 It is definitely a night that you will never forget at a prestigious 5* location in the city centre. You will be greeted at a champagne reception followed by a three course meal. 

The award ceremony of special individual student awards will take place once everyone has been presented with their diplomas. 
The individual awards include;
  • Student of the year
  • Highest academic achiever
  • Most promising therapist
  • Amy Skerret
  • Functional skills
