Beauty Therapy Level 2
This course is ideal if you have a keen interest in a career in Beauty Therapy. This Level 2 Apprenticeship course is recognised as the industry standard that all beauty therapists are expected to achieve. It covers many specialist roles and apprentices can also gain experience in a preferred house style throughout the whole training period.
As an Apprentice training with Runshaw College, you will be expected to demonstrate motivation, enthusiasm and dedication throughout your apprenticeship, both in the work place and at the College. To help you do this, Runshaw will provide you with a high level of continual support to ensure you become fully competent in your field and are employer-ready when you complete this coveted apprenticeship programme. You will also have the same access to all College facilities as our full and part time students, which includes the College library. As an apprentice, you will be encouraged to develop the ability to work both individually or as part of a team and achieve the required qualifications in maths and English should you need to improve your current grade.
You will work towards an Apprenticeship Framework at Level 2 in Beauty Therapy consisting of:
- Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Beauty Therapy
- Employment Rights & Responsibilities
- Personal Learning and Thinking Skills
- Functional Skills*
*If you do not currently hold A* – C (9-4) in English & maths
As an apprentice, you will be required to wear a college uniform (provided by Runshaw).
4 x GCSE A*-D/Grade 9-3 including maths and English or equivalent.
Please note that Individual employers may stipulate higher entry requirements than those stated. The entry requirements stated should therefore be treated as the minimum.
Applicants may also be considered based on alternative qualifications and/or their life/work experience.
You must also be employed and working within a suitable role, in an environment that offers opportunities for you to complete all Level 2 units and working a minimum of 30 hours a week.
Continual assessment and review through formative and summative assessments during your apprenticeship. These assessment methods may include completion of assignments, workbooks, reflective accounts, discussions, exams and observations. The observations of practice will take place in your workplace and be assessed against the Level 2 Apprenticeship Framework.
Employers must be prepared to work with their Apprentice to develop their knowledge and skills by providing a wide range of learning and training opportunities. They must also be prepared to allow them to attend College sessions at the agreed times. Employers are also expected to encourage Apprentices to research their chosen vocation and to support any work experience that will benefit the Apprentice.
This apprentice will allow you to begin a career within this sector, and dependent on job role and experience, could see you progress on to study an Advanced Apprenticeship in Beauty Therapy at Level 3 or other related Level 3 courses.
Runshaw College believes that attendance and punctuality are key factors in the timely success of an Apprenticeship. Apprentices are accepted on the basis that they will have a high level of attendance at College and in the workplace. Persistent or regular absenteeism is a disciplinary offence and may lead to dismissal from the programme.
Runshaw Apprentices will be offered support and be encouraged to develop the ability to work on their own and as team players. We expect our Apprentices to show enthusiasm and the motivation to reach and exceed their goals.
It is important to maintain time keeping and attendance for both college and work place sessions to ensure learners remain on target.
