Advent Calendar Day 3

VTCT Level 2 Diploma for Beauty Professionals (Beauty Therapist)

Advent Calendar Day 3


For our Advent Calendar Day 3, we are continuing our exploration of the Beauty, Nails and Spa sector, this time looking at the Beauty Therapist Apprenticeship.

An alternative to the qualification route explored on Day Two, The Beauty Therapy Apprenticeship is a way to gain entry into the industry that allows an apprentice to learn and earn at the same time.

An apprenticeship is a combination of paid work and paid training in your chosen career. The paid work is called ‘on-the-job’ and the paid training is called ‘off-the-job’.

If you’re just starting to think about embarking on the apprenticeship route, you probably have a lot of questions. We’ve provided some additional information to guide you, available on the information sheet which you can download on the left.

It’s important to know that depending on where you live, the way apprenticeships are run does differ slightly. In order to make sure you’re getting the information that is relevant to you based on your location, visit our Apprentice page and select your region on the map.
