HNC Beauty Therapy aims at developing the underpinning knowledge, research, and skills to work in the beauty industry. This is a 1-year High level course, for those starting their journey in the beauty industry (with the relevant qualifications) or progressing from an appropriate SCQF Level 6 in Beauty Therapy.

You will be taught by industry professionals with a wide range of industrial experience who will provide you with the training required to develop a career in the beauty industry and impart essential knowledge to equip you for employment.

The qualification develops skills in a realistic working environment using contemporary salon equipment and will develop a proficiency in an array of salon treatments. 

You will practice on each other prior to completing assessments on external clients, which you will be expected to provide.

We encourage professionalism in salon appearance and enhance client skills, ensuring you are employable for beauty salons, spas, cruise liners or wish to pursue a career as a self-employed therapist. 

We offer modern student accommodation at a number of our locations.
