A Distance Learning Course is the ideal way to gain a qualification without having the worry of trying to fit your studies around your everyday life.  You can complete your studies in your own time and we are on hand seven days a week to help you plan your future.

Course Description

Beauty therapists give and apply a range of cosmetic treatments and advice to better the appearance and general well-being of their customer. Treatments may include cosmetic camouflage, massage, body toning, diet or exercise techniques.

This course will enable you to become self-employed, work within a salon or travel to client’s homes.

The Distance Learning Beauty Therapy Level 2 course units include all the requirements for the current national Level 2 qualifications, as well as some additional Level 2 treatments that are not currently prerequisites but are commonly offered as salon treatments with some additional training. 

Unit 1 Facial and Skincare     

In this unit, you will look at cleansing, toning, moisturising, massage, and mask application. You will also look at skin types and analysis, as well as product and ingredient information and selection. 

Unit 2 Eyelash and Eyebrow Treatments

Treatments available include eyelash and eyebrow tinting, eyebrow shaping, and false lash application (new longer-lasting lash techniques are discussed in the last unit, and lash perming techniques – not currently part of the Level 2 syllabus – are also explained).

Unit 3 Manicure and Hand Treatments

In this unit, you will consider hand and nail treatments, nail art techniques, common problems, and remedial action. 

Unit 4 Pedicure and Foot Treatments

In Unit 4, you will look at foot and nail treatments, common problems, and remedial action.  You will also consider luxury hand, nail, and foot treatments.

Unit 5 Waxing and Temporary Methods of Hair Removal

In this unit, you will look at salon methods of hair removal, including hot and warm waxing.   You will also make comparisons with methods used at home.

Unit 6 Advanced Nail Techniques

In Unit 6, we will take a brief look at gel, acrylic, and fibreglass nails and their importance for the Level 2 Beauty Therapist.

Unit 7 Make-up Application to the Face

This unit includes information on products, tools, and application for face make-up, including day and evening looks.

Unit 8 Science and Cosmetology

This unit looks more closely at available products and formulations and their use, electrical safety, and hygiene.

Unit 9 Anatomy and Physiology 

Anatomy and physiology are essential parts of the beauty therapist's knowledge. Performing treatments safely and effectively requires the therapist to know what is being worked on and what effects the treatment is having.

Management Units

Unit 10 Health and Safety

Whether you are a salon owner or a junior therapist, you are required by law to have an awareness of your legal and professional responsibilities to ensure your own safety and that of co-workers, clients, and anyone else who may be visiting the premises. 

Unit 11 Consultation

Before any treatment is carried out, a full and thorough consultation is done.  This ensures that the treatment the client receives is safe and best suits his or her needs.  It also requires important paperwork to be completed, which may prove essential in the event of a complaint or legal action.

Unit 12 Promotions and Retailing

As a beauty therapist, the ability to sell is an essential skill.  The business will need retail sales to support its income, and it is important that the client is advised about which products he or she should be using.

Unit 13 Reception 

How you deal with clients and promote the business will determine how long you are going to be employed!  Being a fabulous therapist is pointless if clients are not inclined to book appointments because the reception, receptionist, premises, and/or therapists are unwelcoming – if this is the case, customers will never get close enough to find out how good you are!

Unit 14 Career Opportunities and Continuing Professional Development

This unit summarises what you've learned, looks at further and higher training, and discusses career options open to you.  New and exciting developments in the beauty therapy industry are continually cropping up: there are always new treatments to learn, and clients will expect you to know something about each of them!  

Professional websites and magazines are invaluable for this sort of information.
