The Level 2 Beauty Therapy Diploma enables you to obtain an internationally recognised qualification in Beauty Therapy, which will allow you to seek employment as a mobile therapist or junior therapist within a commercial salon environment or progress on to Level 3 and obtain advanced skills.
The Beauty Department at Boston College and Boston College Spalding work in partnership with a prestigious skin care company, Eve Taylor, to deliver unique skin care training in fully equipped training salons, which are open as commercial salons to the general public.
Commercial salons are run several times a week and will include several evening salon sessions to cater for all. There is also the opportunity throughout the year to work in a varied environment in the community.
The Level 2 Beauty Therapy Diploma consists of the following topics:
You will also study nail technology and nail art, alongside either Functional Skills or GCSE English and Maths, dependent on your current GCSE grade.
