Beauty Therapy Level 3 Learning and Exam Process 

At Beaulaz, we teach practical skills to all learners. However, to spend more time on practical sessions, we expect our learners to finish reading all theory at home before attending the class.

When you attend the lessons, you will receive a demonstration from the course tutor. After that, you will be expected to practice on one another to gain practical experience of the treatment. You will also be required to purchase a kit so you can continue your practice at home.

Students will take an online exam for a unit they have completed at the end of the course. You will also be required to do written assignments on our online e-portfolio. This assignment is to be completed within a given time frame.

To pass the qualification, you must carry out practical assessments for each unit. Depending on which course you enrol in, you will either have assessment dates within your class or you will be given separate dates to attend.
