What Qualification will I recieve?
Dependant on the course that you choose, you will either receive an OFQUAL Regulated RQF or an Accredited Diploma Certificate. For RQF you will be able to gain insurance through any provider anywhere in the world. For accredited courses, our courses are fully accredited by International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine. This means that after this course you will be able to obtain public liability insurance through their insurance partners, enabling you to carry out the treatment on paying clients. Please note that it is your own responsibility to arrange your public liability insurance.
Why are your Diploma Courses shorter in duration to Colleges of further Education?
What is the difference between a RQF and a Diploma?
The difference between an RQF/NVQ and an accredited Diploma, is that an RQF is regulated through the government and therefore a nationallyand internationally recognised qualification of standard and can be more attractive to a potential employer. They vary from levels 1-4 and you can choose to do a full Qualification or Units of a particular qualificatiion - which is a quicker and cheaper option. However, our accredited Diplomas completely insurable and valid both in the UK and Overseas and therefore are perfect for those wishing to work as a mobile therapist or self employed. The choice is yours and we will be on hand to offer aftercare and support regardless of which route you wish to take.
Am I required to do Case Studies?
Unfortunately for some of our courses- the answer is yes! We know that homework is super grim, but not for something you have a passion for! At Peridot Beauty Training, we feel that you will get the most out of your career with careful monitoring and support. We also feel that this is important to keep our industry standards and wages high. Most case studies are to be completed within a time frame of 6 weeks, but you can get them done sooner if you wish!
What do I need to bring with me?
What should I wear?
