We understand working towards a new career can be pricey, so we do offer multi-course discounts, 1-3 courses booked at the same time = 10% off, 4+ courses booked at the same time = 20% off!

How it works 

Theory for all courses is done online through a series of PowerPoints, images and videos. This gives you all the background knowledge you need ready for a practical training session held in Shade.Beauty, Gowerton. Access to the theory is sent via email and can be done using a computer, iPad or smart phone. This needs to be completed prior to any practical training. 

The theory is made up of several modules and each module has a short quiz at the end to test your knowledge. You are required to achieve 70% or more to pass each module and progress onto the next. Don't panic at all though, you can redo each module as many times as you need and we are always an email away if you find you need additional help with this. 

Once the theory has been completed, you then attend a practical session. You are required to bring a model with you for the training session to practice on. Practical sessions are held over 1-7 days Monday-Saturday, typically 10am-5pm with a break for lunch. Some courses only require a half day, so may be 10am-1pm to 1pm-5pm. 

Some courses have the option of purchasing a kit. We recommend purchasing a kit as this allows you to get started straight away. However, this is optional as all products and tools are provided for you on the day to practice with. 

On successful completion of your practical session, you'll receive a fully accredited certificate via the online portal. You can use this to gain insurance and begin working straight away.
