Aim of this course

The VTCT Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Beauty Therapy General is for learners seeking to work in and develop their skills in a commercial setting and can only be delivered by colleges that have or have access to a ‘real’ salon and not a realistic working environment.

The VTCT Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Beauty Therapy General is a substantial vocational qualification for learners seeking a career as an employed and/or self-employed beauty therapist.

This qualification is based on the beauty therapy National Occupational Standards (NOS) and is recognised by the UK’s leading professional bodies (The British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology (BABTAC) and the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT)) as being fit for purpose for preparing learners for a career as a junior beauty therapist.

Entry onto this qualification can be via previous attainment of a Level 1 qualification in beauty therapy and/or a successful skills test and interview.

This is one of two VTCT qualifications in beauty therapy at Level 2. Whilst both qualifications qualify learners to become beauty specialists and gain employment at a junior level, this qualification requires learners to work in a commercial beauty salon, whereby assessments must be carried out on real paying clients in line with commercial service times. In contrast, the VTCT Level 2 Diploma in Beauty Specialist Techniques can be achieved through gathering evidence in a college’s realistic working environment without the necessity for real paying clients.
