VTCT Level 2 Award in Facial Massage and Skincare

Important Announcement
From July 2022, Kerry, the lead tutor at Cheltenham School of Complementary Therapy & Beauty will be taking a sabbatical, for an academic year. Every teacher needs to make time to learn and 2022-2023 will be Kerry's time to learn. This will mean that the school will either operate at a very low level or perhaps will not be offering any training at all. If you've been putting off making a change and have considered studying Reflexology, Massage, Aromatherapy and more, this really is the year to do it!

This course requires at home study that MUST be completed before attending the first practical day of training. Access to an online resource will be provided 3 weeks before day 1 of the on-site work. Completing this theory work online allows us to focus on practical Work during the face-to-face sessions.

This course runs from 9.30-4.30pm and the dates are as follows:

  • Monday 4th October
  • Tuesday 5th October
  • Wednesday 6th October

Course Description

Facials are great treatments to provide to clients. In this course you will gain a thorough knowledge of different skin types and cleansers, toners, moisturisers and exfoliants to use on them. You will steam skin, when safe to do so, and then extract blackheads, helping those struggling with congested skin. This is an interesting course that will qualify you to offer professional facial treatments.

There are therapists now who specialise in facials and this is a growing market. Some people take this course and then go on to develop their facial provision with microdermabrasion and facial electrical equipment, laser, etc. We also offer training at Level 3 - Facial Electrotherapy.

On the Level 2 Facial Skin Care Award you will be taught:
*How to set up a treatment area
*How to consult with a client
*What tools to select and how to use them
*About maintaining and improving facial skin condition using exfoliation, skin warming, comedone extraction, facial massage, mask treatments and facial moisturising products
*Anatomy, physiology and pathologies, relating to skin and the face
*Health and safety

This VTCT (Vocational Training Charitable Trust) qualification is recognised around the world and will allow you to be employed in a clinic, salon or allow you to set up your own business.
