This Apprenticeship is about improving people’s wellbeing by making them look and feel better. Beauty Therapy covers a range of treatments, from simple facials and make-up jobs to waxing.
As a Beauty Therapy apprentice, you’ll assist senior therapists and learn a range of skills and techniques, such as how to improve facial skin conditions, wax body hair, spray tan, shape and colour brows, perform hand and foot treatments, and apply make-up.
On the Advanced Apprenticeship, you’ll work as a beauty therapist, learning techniques like body massage as well as more complicated electronic treatments to remove unwanted hair or improve skin condition.
You’ll work closely with clients and will need the ability to put them at ease, and generally be pleasant and personable.
Most therapists are based in salons, although some can work in hospitals, resorts, and even cruise liners. It can be a glamorous career choice: with further training you might become a make-up artist for film and TV, or help develop new products. In the future you might run your own salon, or work for individual clients.
After successful completion of an Apprenticeship, you could go on to study specialist areas like massage, aromatherapy, hydrotherapy or reflexology.
