The VTCT Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Beauty Therapy Massage (QCF) is a substantial vocational qualification that will confirm your competence as a beauty massage therapist. This qualification forms part of an apprenticeship framework, however; some of the treatments covered within this qualification are subject to age restrictions in certain regions, where local council special treatment licensing applies. Employers are also mindful of the sensitive nature of the service, and due to this, the availability of apprenticeships in beauty massage may be limited in some cases. For this reason, the VTCT Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Beauty Therapy Massage (QCF) is also offered outside apprenticeships by education and training providers who can offer this course in a real salon environment and provide you with the opportunity to learn beauty massage skills, whilst working on real clients. It is important for you to have the opportunity to learn in a real working environment, particularly because this qualification leads to employment in such a client-centred and service orientated sector.
