What is involved in the portfolio in the laser course?
The portfolio is a mix between theory and practical. The practical case studies will be covered throughout the six days in training. The theory will be completed at home by the student. In order to pass the course, the practical case studies need to be completed and so the assignments. There is no theory test but the students will be examined constantly throughout the practical days. On the last day an Internal verifier will be present to also assess.
I am / have been working with lasers do I have to the course?
If you are working with lasers already, we can use that so you do not have to do the full 6 days. You will have to come in for the first three days so we can establish how much you know and what we can recognise as prior learning
Can I fail the course?
If a student does not present the portfolio and have the adequate information, the student can be referred. This is not failing but will possibly passed at a later date when they are assessed again. If the student does not feel fully confident to do the practical assessment.
Do I have to supply models?
We supply models but if you have anyone that wants to have a free treatment they are more than welcome
Will I be fully confident to go out and work after the course?
We aim for all our students to be fully confident and competent to a high standard after the course. If you do not feel confident after the course, you are always more than welcome to attend more practical training free of charge.
Do I need to wear uniform?
For the first five days you do not need uniform, on the last day of assessments you are required to wear uniform and look professional.
Do I need to be a beauty therapist to do these courses?
For all the courses apart from the sales and laser course, you are required to have a beauty therapy qualification or a medical background.
