If you'd like to be a professional make-up artist, this course will help you to build the skills and knowledge you need. You'll train as part of our professional salon team, working on paying customers in our commercial on site salon, Botanica.

You'll study the following units:

Throughout the course, we'll monitor your progress and provide constructive feedback to help you to improve where needed. We'll measure your skills and knowledge against nationally recognised standards specific to the beauty sector. We assess you in a range of ways including practical tasks in our commercial salon Botanica, projects from which you'll create a portfolio of evidence or look book, written coursework and assignments and one end of year exam.
The final assessment will be carried out by a representative from the awarding body.
All practical sessions will be taught in our onsite commercial salon Botanica which houses two hairdressing salons, a beauty suite, barbering space, nail bars and a dedicated make-up room.
You'll wear a salon uniform and use a professional artist kit.
