What could this qualification lead to?
This qualification will prepare you for employment as a beauty massage therapist. You will also be eligible to join a professional association and gain insurance as a beauty massage therapist. Career opportunities as a beauty massage therapist exist in a variety of contexts, including:
– Working in commercial beauty salons, destination spas and day spas
– Working independently/self-employed/mobile/home-based settings
This is one of two VTCT qualifications in beauty massage therapy at Level 3. Whilst both qualifications qualify you to become a beauty massage therapist, this qualification allows you to gather evidence in a realistic working environment or real working environment without the need for fee paying clients.
In contrast, the VTCT Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Beauty Therapy (Massage) has a purpose of confirming competence in a specific job role, rather than preparing you to enter the sector. The VTCT Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Beauty Therapy (Massage) also requires you to work in a commercial salon or spa environment whereby assessments must be carried out on real paying clients in line with commercial service times.
