Frequently Asked Questions
1. HOW DO I BOOK?
You are able to book a course(s) online 24 hours a day. Full payment of the course is kindly requested upon booking. We accept all major credit/debit cards which include Visa, Mastercard, Visa Debit, Maestro, Solo, Electron, Maestro-Int, Diners, JCB and M/C Debit cards. Please note that we DO accept American Express payment cards but due to high fees, it is not our preferred method of payment.
2. WHAT QUALIFICATION DOES THE BRITISH BEAUTY ACADEMY OFFER?
The certificate (same as a diploma) that you will receive carries the accreditation of the major body industries and will prove that you have been trained to a satisfactory level for those governing bodies. This means that you will be able to obtain public liability insurance. Public liability insurance is a legal requirement to have in place before treating a member of the public and charging them money for the service you are providing. You will be provided with details of how to get insured once you have trained with us. Our certificates are fully insurable but in very rare cases some insurance companies may not recognise our certificate(s) therefore we strongly advise that you ask your beauty insurance provider before booking any of our courses to ensure they accept our certificates if you are particular about who you wish to be insured by.
3. WHY CHOOSE A SHORT COURSE AND NOT A HIGHER LEVEL COURSE SUCH AS NVQ?
The main advantage of choosing this route rather than enrolling on a course at NVQ level is that you do not have to complete any case studies and it allows you to start working and earning the cheapest and fastest way.
4. CAN YOU REALLY LEARN IN ONE DAY?
The simple answer is Yes! We believe that as long as you put in the practice after you have completed any of our courses, you will be well on your way to being highly successful in your new chosen career. Our trainers are highly skilled and experienced in teaching you to be perfectly competent before you leave on the day hence why we have a 100% success rate but like anything in life, 'practice makes perfect'.
5. HOW BIG ARE YOUR CLASSES?
All of our classes are of a manageable size so that our tutors can ensure students are given plenty of time, attention and the opportunity to ask any questions. Students are especially encouraged to air any questions whilst on our courses. We are pleased to say that great emphasis is put on the practical side of training as accurate handwork is one of the most essential factors in any beauty training course.
6. DO YOU ACCEPT ILA FUNDING?
We regret to say that we do not currently accept ILA funding although it may be something we look into for future.
7. WHAT DO I WEAR?
Ideally you are requested to wear salon wear such as a beauty tunic and trousers which is a good habit to be in right from the beginning of your new career (or to continue good practice if you are already a beauty therapist) although smart but comfortable dress code is also satisfactory.
