The Manicure and Pedicure Level 2 Certificate will teach you the essentials of Manicure, Pedicure, Client Care and other essentials, including Health and Safety.
Ideal for those looking to progress into an in-salon career, or offer freelance services, the course will provide the skills, knowledge, technical ability and confidence required to successfully offer a range of treatements to clients.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
As part of the Level 2 Manicure and Pedicure course you will study a range of modules, allowing you to perfect your skills in:
Working With Others
Health and Safety
In addition to the skills needed to work in industry, you will also study elements of anatomy and physiology, to allow you to understand bone structure in the hands and feet. To achieve the qualification, you will need to complete and pass five online exams and three assignments.
HOW WILL I BE TAUGHT?
As a manicure and pedicure learner at Preston’s College, you will perfect your skills in our on-site bespoke salon, Elements. The salon is home to a fully furnished beauty salon containing 11 treatment beds, nail room containing 21 workstations, a hair salon and demonstration workshops, where you will perfect your skills on both fellow learners and models.
This is a highly practical course, meaning you will spend most of your time undertaking practical work but there is theory behind the practical, which will be studied and assessed. As the course progresses, you will spend more time undertaking practical work. You will also be required to supply your own models for each assignment.
As our on-site facilities reflect industry working practices, you will be required to wear all black whilst in the salon, or, if you are already working in industry and have a uniform, you can wear your salon uniform. You will also be expected to tie your hair up whilst in the salon and cannot wear false nails.
HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?
Your tutor will assess your practical skills on models and the results of these will be recorded in your own e-portfolio. To achieve the qualification, you will need to complete and pass five online exams and three assignments.
WHAT CAN I DO NEXT?
Upon successful completion of the course, you may choose to progress onto other courses within the beauty department, such as Nail Technology.
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO KNOW?
In order to develop your technical skills, you will be required to purchase professional products, relevant to the course. Preston’s College recognises that kit and uniform costs can be a worry, but you may be entitled to financial support from the college bursary. More information will be provided to you on your first day.
Ideally you will have an English qualification at Level 2 and a keen interest in the subject.
