Level 3 Wellbeing and Holistic Therapist

Wellbeing and Holistic Therapist Apprenticeship L3

The occupation of a Wellbeing and Holistic Therapist can be found in a number of environments, including Spa, Leisure, Holistic or Wellness Therapy centres, Medi-spas and Beauty salons. Wellbeing Environments are continually expanding due to the continuing demand for lifestyle wellness including para-medical, health care environments and businesses implementing wellbeing corporate responsibility.

The broad purpose of the occupation is to create, implement and adapt tailored holistic and wellbeing experiences, in a variety of environments, meeting and managing treatment and experience outcomes in private, secure and safe environments. Wellbeing and Holistic therapists complete treatments and wellbeing experiences via holistic therapy principles, theories and applications to calm or stimulate the sensory perceptions of the body and mind in the pursuit of optimal functioning and balance of the physical, emotional and mental aspects of daily life.

Wellbeing and Holistic Therapists deliver specific treatments such as; aromatherapy, acupressure (manual digit pressure massage applied by the hands to specific points on the face or body) and holistic massage (therapeutic hands-on massage therapy that affects the client’s physical, emotional and mental wellbeing), Indian head massage, lymphatic drainage and wellness experiences. They provide advice on post-treatment aftercare and make future recommendations for their clients. They contribute to the commercial viability and effectiveness of the business to enhance the client experience.

Resource and documentation

As one of the organisations involved in its creation, we are very familiar with the Apprenticeship for Wellbeing and Holistic Therapist L3.

Please note this apprenticeship standard does not include a mandated qualification.

In addition to being a leading Awarding Organisation, VTCT is also an End-point Assessment Organisation that offers a fair, consistent and reliable End-point Assessment.

To introduce this new standard, we held a webinar on 21st June 2022, which is available to view below. The webinar provides a detailed explanation of what is required to achieve the standard as well as details of the EPA process.
