This qualification reflects the role of individuals employed as beauty therapists to provide a broad range of beauty therapy treatments and services including facial treatments, body massage and treatments, hair removal, lash and brow treatments, nail and make-up services. This includes consultation with clients to provide beauty advice, recommend beauty treatments and services, and sell retail skin-care and cosmetic products.These individuals work relatively autonomously, and are accountable for personal outputs. Their work involves the self-directed application of knowledge and skills with substantial depth in some areas where judgement is required in planning and selecting appropriate equipment, services and techniques.Work is typically conducted in beauty salons and spas.No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.

It was more intense than expected, but i was also pregnant during my course and the teachers helped me when i had contraindications

Overall good, but equipment outdated and some no longer used in the industry. Ended up not qualified to use current day equipment necessary in Beauty clinics and will need further training so that is a disadvantage as I'm still searching for a job. Did not meet expectations, need to include microdermabrasion, skin needling, LED light therapy, laser hair removal plus more. Some of my teachers were absolutely amazing but others were not interested/unhelpful/undedicated to teaching, but three of my teachers I can not speak highly enough of, they were excellent.

Great teachers, overall it was an enjoyable course. Great learning material and the practical components of the course made the transition into the beauty industry a little easier.

Studying was ok but was not enough to find a job as I graduated two years ago and till now I couldn't find a job and I wasnt accepted by all beauty salons due to lack of experience.

The course it self was good but we needed more assistance with finding a job before the course had ended so we are out in the industry receiving more experience and be more qualified.

I thoroughly enjoyed my studies. I was completing an apprenticeship at the time so the theory and practical was well balanced. The resources and teachers were exceptional. Everything was thoroughly reviewed and extra time taken where needed. Absolutely loved it.

The course was great, I feel however it does need to be updated to fit the criteria of what is expected at current work places
