At the same time, you will also attend our 20 week Level 2 Beauty Therapy Course delivered 3 days a week Wednesday to Friday. During this time you will be learning health & safety in the salon, client care & communication and reception duties along with the following treatments:
Eyelash & eyebrow treatments
All of our assessors are fully qualified, and have previously or still are, working in this sector and will support you while completing your training. You will be learning and practicing in a realistic salon environment in our training academy.
If you did not achieve Maths and English GCSE grades A-C at school or college our Traineeship programme will also help you to improve and gain functional skills, which will prepare you for the apprenticeship or job requirements once your Traineeship is complete.
Within your first 2 weeks you will be introduced to your work experience employer, who is normally local to where you live. You will complete approximately 7 hours of work experience each week (on a Tuesday or Saturday) for the next 16 weeks which will offer you the chance to practice the beauty and employability skills that you will have achieved through your training at TNB Skills, whilst gaining the salon experience that most beauty, nail and hair employers are looking for. It will also give you the opportunity to demonstrate to your work place employer the skills that you can offer their individual business as well as the chance to build a small clientele with a view to moving onto any job or apprenticeship opportunities they may have once you have completed your traineeship. This training opportunity will give you the necessary stepping stones that will lead into full time employment, advanced apprenticeships, self- employment and more.
At the end of the programme you will be interviewed by your work experience employer who will give you a written reference, at the very least, if you haven’t secured employment or apprenticeship with them. You will be able to apply for vacancies with TNB Skills or other outside agencies, with increased confidence, due to gained work experience and certificates to verify your skills as a beauty therapist.
You will also have the opportunity to attend a workshop about becoming self-employed within in the beauty industry and the opportunities you can gain from this.
