A Regulated Qualification by City & Guilds

rebecca headshot 2020

You have received training, become accredited, gained insurance, grown a business and now you want to progress to another level. Maybe, work with a product company, embark on some additional training, apply for a career opportunity or even become an educator yourself.

...Maybe you have compete a course that turned out to be a CPD Certificate, NOT a qualification! Suddenly, you’re being told that you’re not qualified……… Now what? You definitely don’t want to or need to go back to the beginning, but you don’t know if what you’re doing and what you know is what you should know and be doing!

Don’t panic, we have the solution. We can help you gain a regulated qualification without going back to the beginning.

Building upon your current skills, knowledge & behaviours, our assessors can create a bespoke development plan for you to access the required training, development & assessment in order to gain a City & Guilds qualification.

I offer City & Guilds VRQ qualifications at levels 2 & 3 in nail technology, manicure and pedicure.

When you enrol, you will be provided with a Therapy Learning Resource support package containing all the knowledge & skills information you need to ensure you know what you need to know before embarking on your assessments

This Route to Regulated Qualification is designed for those who have taken accredited training, gained insurance and have been working within the industry without issue, however, are blocked to progression because they do not hold a regulated qualification.

We work with City & Guilds and the qualification type is a VRQ - there is more information about this inside the Induction programme

This does depend on you!  The learning resources and assignments need to be completed so it depends on how much time you can dedicate to this. The support package contains health & safety, professional standards, anatomy & physiology as well as technical skills. You need to have the programme signed off before progressing to the practical assessment.

There are 2 costs involved. The first is the learning support fee which is £125-£175 depending on the unit.  This includes all theory assessment, certification & support, and is active for six months. The second cost is paid to your skills assessor for the practical assessments, charged at £150 per day.

No, we won't ask you to purchase a specific uniform, however, your workwear must conform to industry standards.

This is natural to doubt your skills, however, we truly believe that most accredited trainers teach a good standard of techniques. If you are concerned, we can arrange a skills mentor to watch your treatments through a Zoom link and offer any pre-assessment support and guidance.  There is an additional £25  charge for this service.

Your knowledge does need to be assessed and one way is through a written assignment. We understand, however, that some people would prefer not to write assignments and therefore, there is an alternative online multiple-choice option.

Certificates will be issues via the main centre once the quality assurance process has been completed. City & Guilds now issue digital credentials that you can attach to your social media. In addition, you will be emailed an electronic copy and a hard copy will be posted to you.
