Course description

Level 3 Nail Technician

Prior study is not a prerequisite – you just need a passion for the subject matter!

Over recent years there has been a huge increase in demand for personal grooming products, and an upsurge in gymnasium attendance as people try to emulate the pristine appearance of their favourite music, film or soap stars, as well as a massive growth in start-up businesses within the beauty and glamour sector.

Which is why this is the best possible time to consider a new career within that sector, and the best way to hit the ground running is to get yourself trained in the skills required.

If you enjoy working with people, are creative or artistic, and love keeping up with the latest fashion trends, a new career in the beauty industry could be for you. Work in the sector is both interesting and varied, and job satisfaction is very high indeed.

Suitability - Who should attend?

A reasonable level of literacy is required, but there are no entry restrictions.

You just need a keen interest in the subject, and will ideally have studied the subject or ancillary disciplines at a lower level if you want to progress quickly.

For more information about admission requirements, please contact the provider.
