Overview

The Guild of Beauty Therapists

 

In order to complete the accredited practical element of this course, students will need to become a member of the Beauty Guild and complete the Theory module, upon which you will receive a code (which you will need to provide to ourselves to undertake the practical sessions).

The GTi Manicure Award is accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists, the UK’s leading professional beauty trade body. The course covers the consultation, contra-indications, technique and aftercare needed to perform a manicure treatment and is written following the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for beauty, nails and holistic therapy treatments.

How will the course be marked?

Following each theory module you will take an online examination which requires a pass rate of around 70%. For the practical module you will need to demonstrate that you can perform the outlined tasks to the skill level required.

Am I allowed to refer to textbooks or notes during the examination?

No. You are expected to complete online tests under exam conditions without referring to any notes, textbooks or online help.

What will I receive when I complete the course?

You will receive a GTi certificate which will be mailed to you on successful completion of the course.

How soon after enrolling can I start the course?

Once you have enrolled on the course and paid the course fee, you will have immediate access to the online course modules which means you can start learning straight away. Practical training will take place on a date booked by yourself.

How long will it take me to complete the course?

The time it takes to complete the course will depend on how quickly you learn as an individual, and also on the number of hours per day you spend on it. Most students are able to complete the course within approximately 12 hours of study.
