Who is this qualification for?


The VTCT Level 3 Certificate in Indian Head Massage (QCF) is a vocational qualification aimed at learners aged 16+ who want to study this subject on a flexible basis.

There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification although it is likely that learners will hold associated level 2 or 3 equivalent qualifications in similar or complementary subjects.

Primary Outcome


The primary outcome of the VTCT Level 3 Certificate in Indian Head Massage (QCF) is to prepare you to enter the hairdressing; beauty and complementary therapy sector as a specialist massage therapist, with the specific skill of providing Indian head massage treatments. All the units in this qualification relate directly to the role of a specialist massage therapist.

What does this qualification cover?


The VTCT Level 3 Certificate in Indian Head Massage (QCF) is a vocationally related qualification that will prepare you to provide Indian head massage treatments to a high level of occupational ability, to enable you to provide your own services for clients.

This is a vocationally related qualification and includes all the required elements to develop your practical skills. The four mandatory units include the practical and theoretical knowledge required to provide Indian head services and monitoring and maintaining health and safety practices in the salon, to ensure all treatments are carried out with health and safety as a priority. The two remaining mandatory units provide the wider skills required to be a successful therapist of client care and communication in beauty-related industries and promote and sell product s and services. Both of these units address the need for a successful therapist to understand the importance of retail and client care.

Why is this qualification the most suitable?


This is one of two VTCT qualifications in Indian head Massage at level 3. Whilst both qualifications will qualify you to become a specialist Indian head massage therapist this qualification allows you to gather evidence in a realistic or real working environment without the need for real paying clients. In contrast, the VTCT Level 3 NVQ Award in Indian Head Massage (QCF) requires you to work in a commercial environment whereby assessments must be carried out on real paying clients in line with commercial service times.

What could this qualification lead to?


This qualification will prepare you for a role as a specialist massage therapist in the hair, beauty or complementary therapy sector in a variety of contexts:
- Complementary therapy clinic
- Beauty salon
- Hair salon
- Independent/mobile/home-based settings
- Day spa or destination spa

Who supports this qualification?


This qualification has been reviewed by The British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology (BABTAC) who have confirmed that this qualification is fit for purpose and will enable learners to undertake a specific job role with a hairdressing, beauty therapy or complementary therapy employer. Further information on BABTAC membership can be found on their website.
