Case Studies


Your case studies at the National School of Aesthetics

Case studies indicate your understanding and critical thinking regarding treatments you are delivering, and documents this for us to assess.

A case study is written documentation of work you have carried out on a client. A case study should reflect your competence in and knowledge of the subject.

These assignments are compulsory. You must achieve a pass grade in case study work to qualify for NaSA and ITEC.

All work must be your own work.

ITEC now calls case studies evidence of treatments. These are still, in essence, the same thing.

  • These are completed under the guidance of your tutors, who will monitor the quality of your written work. Case study portfolios are then presented to the examiner as part of your final examinations.
  • Each case study should take 3-5 hours work: practical and written. Some can be started in class and then completed at home, but for the majority should be completed outside of class.
  • Certain treatment assignments are due at various times of the year. See the Case Studies Due Dates for your due dates during the course.

Downloadable Case Studies Forms

Please find information and downloadable forms about case studies.

When you open any of the Word (.doc) files, you will be prompted for a password. Click “Read only” when you do. You can alter the gray areas in the document, then save it. It would be best to save each one with a different, memorable name, like “body-therapy-client-3-01-10.doc”
