Beauty Therapy

Beauty Therapy always comes out as one of the top professions for job satisfaction. Why not come and study one of our Beauty Therapy courses and find out why?

Our Beauty Therapy courses are available at Level/s 1, 2, 3

Our state-of-the-art, realistic training salon, Image, will allow you to experience salon life under the guidance of our highly-trained, inspirational tutors. A typical day of study at Scarborough TEC could see you performing anything from body massage to a manicure and facials. Not only will you get to hear expert talks from industry professionals but you will go on trips to professional hair and beauty shows.

You will develop skills in areas such as manicure, pedicure, make-up, skin and hand care with the addition of skin treatments and waxing techniques as well as anatomy and physiology as the courses progress. Your face-to-face interaction and customer service skills will be honed and refined in our Image Salon where you will work with real clients and of course, everyone has the opportunity to do vital work experience.
