What could this qualification lead to?

This qualification will prepare you for employment as a beauty massage therapist. You will also be eligible to join a professional association and gain insurance as a beauty massage therapist. Career opportunities as a beauty massage therapist exist in a variety of contexts, including:

– Working in commercial beauty salons
– Working in destination and day spas
– Working independently/self-employed/mobile/home-based settings

This is one of two VTCT qualifications in beauty massage therapy at Level 3. Whilst both qualifications qualify you to become a beauty massage therapist, this qualification requires you to work in a commercial salon whereby assessments must be carried out on real paying clients in line with commercial service times.

In contrast, the VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Massage Therapy has a purpose of preparing you to enter the beauty therapy sector rather than confirming competence in a specific job role. The VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Massage Therapy allows you to gather evidence in a realistic working environment or real working environment without the need for fee paying clients.
