Course Information for Students
Who is this course for?
This Level 3 programme is designed for students with existing Level 2 Beauty qualifications or for those with industry experience. It will provide you with the chance to gain advanced practical experience in massage, manicures, pedicures, electrical treatments, skin care, hand care, basic make-up application, tanning and nail technologies.
The course is designed for students who want to progress from Level 2 but still require either GCSE English or Maths at a higher grade.
As part of your studies, you will be required to complete work experience to develop skills and behaviours that support your progression.
You need to be highly motivated and demonstrate a keen interest in your chosen subject. Offers of a place on the course are dependent on your qualifications and practical aptitude. Entry requirements are:
- Completion of a Level 2 Beauty qualification
- Sector-related industry experience
You will have an interview and will be invited to attend a taster session. Parents and carers are welcome to attend the interview and taster. If you are successful, you will be allocated a conditional place to study.
What will you learn?

- Working in beauty related industries

- Monitor and maintain health and safety
You will also study some of the following additional units:

How will you learn?
This course will be delivered on-site at the Roundhouse. It is highly practical and so a basic level of fitness is required as you may spend long periods on your feet between breaks.
Theory lessons will require you to take notes in order to revise terminology and learn processes.
You will be working with clients. Often they are people with whom you will not be familiar or you may be asked to find your own clients on whom to undertake treatments. You will also receive treatments as a client as part of a reciprocal agreement with your peers.
What will you need to bring with you?
There is a kit and uniform to purchase: full details will be given at your interview.
The kit will contain the essentials required to carry out a range of treatments. Financial assistance will be available for eligible candidates.
The uniform must be worn every day.
Please note that jewellery (including facial piercings) and nail extensions are not permitted for practical sessions. These must be removed in advance of practical classes. Black closed-toe shoes must be worn (no trainers or sandals) and hair should be tied back.
When acting as a client (receiving treatments from a peer), you will need to remove all jewellery and remove strip eyelashes for facial treatments. Make-up will be removed for facial treatments so please consider this as part of your day (You may want to bring your make-up to reapply afterwards). Nail extensions to fingers and toes are not advised as they will be removed for manicure and pedicure treatments. You must be considerate about these requests as being unable to participate as a client will negatively impact your peers’ progress on the course.
If you have any limitations with regards to what treatments you can do due to medical restrictions or religious beliefs, please inform us immediately.
How will you be assessed?
You will be formatively assessed by a range of methods including practical observation, exams and assignments.
As the course is highly practical, you should expect to have a number of summative observations to ensure your competency in each treatment and exams to assess your theoretical knowledge.
You may wish to expand your skill set by undertaking a Sports Massage course, small micro-credentials or alternative courses in Hairdressing, but your next steps should now be to look for employment in the sector.
This course is an excellent platform for a career in the beauty sector.
