We get asked lots of questions here at the Academy so we thought we could include some of the most common to help you with your answers.
20-week Beauty Therapy Courses
What are the hours?
The courses run from 10 am – 4 pm each day with a ½ hour lunch break.
Do I need to purchase anything?
No, whilst at the Beauty Academy, you will be using our collection of products which includes OPI, Mac and other market-leading brands. For some courses, you will be provided with a small selection to practice at home.
Do I need previous experience?
Most of our 20-week beauty courses are suitable for beginners. Our only course not suitable is Nail Services as this requires you to hold the prerequisite of our nail technology course or equivalent.
Are you open during the school holidays?
Unlike beauty colleges, Foundations beauty Academy is open throughout all school holidays.
Can I complete more than one course at a time?
Unfortunately no, but you are able to access up to four learner loans, and our courses roll continually through the year meaning you can sign up for another after your course completion.
Are your courses accredited?
Is there a minimum age?
Foundations Beauty Academy offers adult education and as a result, you must be 19 or older to study one of our courses.
One Day Beauty Training Courses
What are the start and finish times?
10 am – 4 pm with a ½ hour lunch
Do I need a model?
Is a kit provided to take home?
To complete the course our stock of beauty equipment is used. The Precision Brows, Lash Lift and Individual Eyelash Extension Courses require case studies to be completed at home following the course and submitted for assessment. We provide you with what you need to do this. A LashBase kit is provided for the Lash Lift and Individual Eyelash Extensions courses and a selection of industry leading essential beauty products for Precision Brows. For the Facials course, a kit is provided which is used in the training and can then be taken home to use for treatments with clients.
Are these courses suitable for beginners?
Yes, all our one-day courses are suitable for beginners and are perfect for both beauty professionals and those wishing to learn a new skill to carry out treatments on themselves and friends and family.
Are these courses accredited?
Yes, all one-day courses are ABT accredited. By completing your course with us you are eligible to receive a 10% discount your insurance with them as a result.
How do I secure my place?
To secure your spot you must pay 20% of the course value in advance via card, BACS or cash in the academy, with the remainder being paid on the day. The exception to this is the Lash Artist package where a deposit of £99 is required.
