Research different options
Make sure you are aware of all the different types of courses available to you. Whether you’re looking to do a specific subject or a broader beauty course, do thorough research to know what it is your looking for.
Check the qualification
Always check what kind of qualification you are getting. Certificates of attendance will not allow you to work as they are not insurable, accredited qualification allows you to gain insurance to work as a self-employed therapist and NVQ or equivalent qualifications are nationally recognized, allowing you to work freely in the industry under any insurance.
Check what is included in the price
Make sure you know what you will be getting from the course. Is a kit included, what type of content does the course cover and is a pack provided on the day? These are all good questions to ask to ensure you have all the correct information.
Get to know the team
You want to feel welcome before booking the course. Are staff able to answer your questions and give you the correct and relevant information.
Ask about the venue and facilities
You want to know before you book that you are getting the best experience from your course. Is the academy your looking at able to accommodate your needs on the course?
