What could this qualification lead to?



This qualification will qualify you to gain employment as a hair and beauty salon manager. This is one of two VTCT qualifications in salon management at level 4. Whilst both qualifications enable you to become a salon manager, at 301 GLH this qualification is larger than the VTCT Level 4 Certificate in Salon Management and requires you to achieve more units and to develop a greater breadth of units. This qualification is suitable if you have no prior or informal experience in a managerial role within a salon, as it covers the full breadth of units you would need to successfully carry out the role of a salon manager. In contrast, the VTCT Level 4 Certificate in Salon Management is suitable for learners who have been undertaking supervisory or managerial functions within a salon as part of another role or for learners who have some experience in a salon manager's role but who have no formal salon management qualifications. This qualification is not part of an apprenticeship.

The VTCT Level 4 Diploma in Salon Management is recognised by industry as the qualification needed for those who wish to become in employed as a salon manager in the hair or beauty sector. Career opportunities as a salon manager exist in a variety of contexts, including:
- Beauty salons
- Hair salons
- Nail salons
- Beauty/Nail retail concessions in department stores
- Day spa or destination/hotel spa
- Cruise ships

This qualification is based on the Habia National Occupational Standards (NOS) and is recognised by the leading professional association representing owners of hair and beauty salons, the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) as being fit for purpose to prepare you for employment as a salon manager. Holders of this qualification are eligible to become members of FHT. Further information on FHT membership can be found on their website.
