Additional Information

Who is this qualification for?



The VTCT Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Beauty Therapy Make-up is a substantial vocational qualification for learners seeking a career as an employed and/or self-employed beauty therapist specialising in make-up. This qualification is based on the beauty therapy National Occupational Standards (NOS) for make-up and is recognised by the UK's leading professional bodies, The British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology (BABTAC) and the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) as being fit for purpose for preparing learners for a career as a beauty therapist specialising in make-up.

Entry onto this qualification can be via previous attainment of a Level 1 qualification in beauty therapy and/or a successful skills test and interview.

Why is this qualification most suitable?



This is one of two VTCT qualifications covering beauty therapy make-up at Level 2. Whilst both qualifications qualify learners to become beauty specialists and gain employment at a junior level, this qualification requires learners to work in a commercial beauty salon, whereby assessments must be carried out on real paying clients in line with commercial service times. In contrast, the VTCT Level 2 Diploma in Hair and Media Make-up also contains some hairdressing units and can be achieved through gathering evidence in a college's realistic working environment without the necessity for real paying clients.

The VTCT Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Beauty Therapy General is for learners seeking to gain beauty and make-up skills (not hairdressing) and for those who wish to work in and develop their skills in a commercial setting. This qualification can only be delivered by colleges that have or have access to a 'real' salon and not a realistic working environment.

What does this qualification cover?



This qualification has been specifically designed for the 16-19 age groups, and will develop the knowledge skills to prepare learners for employment as a beauty therapist specialising in make-up. Learners will have their beauty therapy make-up skills assessed in a real or realistic working environment.

This structure of this qualification provides learners with the flexibility to develop their knowledge, understanding and skills depending upon their designated career pathway as a junior beauty therapist specialising in make-up.
