Introducing Level 2 facial course in August


The VTCT level 2 award in facial massage and skin care (QCF) is a qualification that has been specifically designed to develop your practical skills in how to provide facial skincare. You will learn key aspects of health and safety in a salon environment promoting client care and communication. The main purpose of this qualification is to develop your beauty therapy skills.

Ray Cochrane Beauty School in London has especially introduced the VTCT Level 2 Facial and Skincare course for students who have no previous beauty qualifications and who only want to learn facial and skin care treatments instead of whole Level 2 Beauty Therapy Diploma.

Our unique teaching and practising method will enable us to fast-track the VTCT Level 2  Facial and Skin Care in just 5 weeks. During these 5 weeks, you only need to attend class 1 day per week. This is the ideal short beauty course for you if you want to change career and to gain an accredited beauty qualification.

During the beauty course, you will be fully supported by our highly experienced tutors. We aim to ensure you are ready for the workplace after successful completion of VTCT facial and skincare.
