At The Course
The majority of your classes are held on campus. The exceptions to this may be field trips and projects to be completed outside the school.
You will be expected to complete both practical and theory classes.
In your course, you will be expected to act as both therapist and client during most sessions. This means you may undergo and give the less pleasant treatments, like electrolysis and waxing, and the more pleasant treatments, like facials and body massage. The exception to this would be where final examinations occur, on clinic days, and for nail technology students, who may practice nail technology on specialised manicure hands. You supply the cotton wool, tissues, linen, et cetera, while we supply the product.
Theory is important as this gives you the knowledge to perform treatments confidently and competently. You will be expected to attend the majority of theory lessons (even catching up on some one-off lessons if you have missed them).
During theory lessons, such as anatomy and physiology, cosmetic chemistry and electricity and basic physics, we will give you the overarching knowledge. You need to study your theory and expand upon that knowledge in your own self-directed study time (outside of class).
