About Elite Spa and Beauty Academy
Elite Spa & Beauty Academy is a high quality, professional and friendly Beauty & Spa college. Our specially designed facilities and resources combine to provide an industry-specific learning environment in the North West.
Whether you are a total beginner looking for a beauty course to embark on a new career, or an existing therapist wanting to refresh and update your skills, our courses are designed to help you achieve this in the shortest possible time.
We aim to provide the highest quality, short term, intensive Beauty Therapy & Spa training courses.
Our training centre in Liverpool has the latest quality products and equipment essential for today’s professional courses.
Elite Spa and Beauty Academy is proud to be associated with VTCT, (Vocational Training Charitable Trust) one of the leading examining boards in the Beauty Industry.
We are governed and regularly inspected by VTCT to ensure the quality of our training, premises, facilities and tutors are always to the highest standard.
Working towards one of our internationally recognised qualifications can be intense, requiring both practical and theory study at home as well as in the college classroom.
We are always happy to discuss your aims and objectives before you embark on a course so that we can be sure that you find the right course for you.
We’ll help and advise on building your portfolio and we’ll work together towards your internal practical assessments and ensure that you are fully equipped to complete your end of course examination paper.
Depending on what route you are wishing for your career to take, you may not require a Qualification.
If you wish to work as a mobile therapist or just to offer occasional treatments from home, you will be sufficiently qualified with an ABT accredited qualification. ABT will allow you to gain public liability (beauty) insurance so you can work on paying clients.
This allows you to start earning straight away following training, even while working towards a qualification. ABT accredited courses are also ideal for existing Therapists looking to refresh their knowledge or acquire new skills.
If you are wishing to keep your options open to employment in the future or are wishing to go directly into employment within a salon or spa you will require a VTCT Qualification. This is also recommended if you wish to open business premises.
Level 2 & 3 qualifications are also usually required if wishing to gain employment on a cruise ship. VTCT qualifications are usually recommended as they demonstrate proficiency within your skills.
Also many local authorities require salon owners/therapists to hold a qualification in order for them to issue a local authority licence.
Both ABT & VCTC qualifications are:
- Ideal for complete beginners.
- Great for those who want a flexible study route if they can only attend a limited number of days due to work or childcare commitments
- For those who want a fast track route into an exciting new career.
A good command of the English language (both verbal & written) is required for all qualifications. Students require home study (written and practical) following training days and must also attend assessment days to achieve the qualifications.
VTCT qualifications indicate to an employer that you are able to perform treatments competently and within a commercially acceptable time. These qualifications are widely recognised by employers looking for skilled therapists in the beauty industry.
