A Career as a Beauty Therapist – Advent Calendar Day 7

Beauty, Nails & Spa Careers: Beauty Therapist

For Advent Calendar Day 7, we open the doors of the Beauty Salon and look inside to explore the career path of a Beauty Therapist, from our Beauty, Nails and Spa sector.

VTCT offer a range of qualifications in Beauty Therapy. A Beauty Therapy qualification is a great starting point from which to embark on a career in Beauty as it covers multiple treatments. These may include facial skincare, waxing, body massage, manicure, pedicure, client care, health and safety. This means learners can gain skills in a range of treatments, but can also choose to later specialise in a particular area.

As a Beauty Therapist, you can work in salons, spas, cruise ships, or be self-employed, working from home, offering mobile treatments or opening your own salon.

We have asked industry and education experts to answer some of the key questions that you might be asking as you start thinking about your dream career in this sector. Click the information sheet to read their insights.
