VTCT Level 2 – Beauty Therapy General




This is one of two VTCT qualifications in beauty therapy at Level 2. Whilst both qualifications qualify learners to become beauty specialists and gain employment at a junior level, this qualification requires learners to work in a commercial beauty salon, whereby assessments must be carried out on real paying clients in line with commercial service times. In contrast, the VTCT Level 2 Diploma in Beauty Specialist Techniques can be achieved through gathering evidence in a college’s realistic working environment without the necessity for real paying clients.

The VTCT Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Beauty Therapy General is for learners seeking to work in and develop their skills in a commercial setting and can only be delivered by colleges that have or have access to a ‘real’ salon and not a realistic working environment.
