Before you attend an assessment at the school and can be deemed competent in your new skill, you will be required to continue an on going program of home theory study and practical treatments on clients to meet the required ranges. Each practical should be completed in a commercial time and represent a realistic treatment under suitable conditions.
After completing your Traing Portfolio and any written assignments you should contact the school to arrange a date to attend and sit any written assessments that are required.
If at this stage you are not yet deemed to be competent by the tutor in a practical assessment or fail to reach the required result on the theory papers, you will be asked to return at an agreed later date.
The cost of the first practical and theory assessment has been included in the course fee. Any subsequent assessments that may be required will be charged separately and paid in advance at £30 per assessment. You will be permitted to take up to three assessments within the daily rate provided they are of different subjects.
During the practical assessment you will be required to prepare your own treatment area in preparation of your client. You will then be asked to perform a complete realistic treatment using your own products and in a commercial time including demonstrating the consultation and record keeping processes and client aftercare advice.
Due to possible cross-contamination you will not be allowed to use your own make-up kit during make-up training or assessments.
After successfully achieving an assessment within 9 months from the course and proving your competence to the internal assessor the evidence will then be approved by a VTCT External Verifier. The results will then be sent to VTCT to be credited to your record of achievement. Your NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) certificate will then be issued by VTCT and sent to the college for your collection.
“Congratulations” you will then be fully qualified in the subject you have studied and able to work in the industry or for yourself offering this treatment commercially.
