VTCT Courses

VTCT, standing for Vocational Training Charitable Trust, is a specialist awarding and assessment organisation offering vocational and technical qualifications in a range of service sectors. VTCT qualifications are globally recognised and highly respected throughout the beauty industry. All VTCT courses are recognised by Ofqual. (Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation)

With a vast array of qualifications and course options available to you, choosing the right path for yourself can be very confusing. Here is a little insight in to the difference between short courses and VTCT Ofqual regulated qualifications.

Accredited Certificates Vs VTCT Qualifications?

Most day/short training courses will be accredited by an awarding body such as Professional Beauty, ABT, BABTAC, International approval or The Beauty Guild. This means that the training school has been approved based on their course manuals, training qualifications and liability insurance.

These will allow you to the learn the skills needed to carry out these treatments. These are suitable for anyone wishing to work for themselves at home or as a mobile therapist.

Currently discussions are taking place in parliament about unsafe unregulated training. Which has lead to some councils requiring a qualification over an accredited certificate. Although this hasn’t come into place nationally it is something we believe will change in the near future.

Not all treatments/services have a Ofqual regulated course for individuals to study, some of these courses include, Brow Lamination, B12 Injection and Dermaplaning etc, these are classed as CPD courses and require you to hold prerequisites (minimum level qualifications) before enrolling on the courses.

For example, to complete Brow Lamination Course you must already hold a certificate/qualification in Brow Shaping services. Therefore, these types of courses can be run at an accredited training provider.

We would strongly recommend that you check with the awarding bodies that the school/training provider is still approved as they have to renew each year, we would also encourage you to do your research as they can vary extensively in their quality, rigour and achievement of competency standards. These are rarely formerly measured, evidenced or assessed by a qualified assessor. Moreover, often the curriculum will be designed around a single brand or piece of equipment rather than looking at the broader scope of an area of study.

Here at Chloe Winter Academy we provide you with the option to study a VTCT Qualification or complete an Accredited Course, but rest assured the standard of our delivery and assessment methods are in line with that of Ofqual regulated qualifications.
