Training Options - SSBT Diploma & NVQ Qualifications
The Southern School of Beauty Therapy Diploma
Our intensive courses range between 1 and 3 days. At the end of your course, if successful, you will be awarded our private training school diploma.
This will enable you to gain insurance and membership of one of the professional bodies with whom we are accredited such as
The Guild of Beauty Therapists. This membership will provide you with newsletters, advertising and tickets to trade shows plus insurance which means that you
can start working and earning - with most self-employed therapists this is anywhere between £20 to £50 an hour.
NVQ Qualifications at SSBT
As we are an accredited VTCT training centre you also have the option to gain an NVQ qualification.
This is achieved by successful completion
of the initial training followed by portfolio building and assessments. The NVQ is a useful qualification for those who wish to seek employment
(ie. in a salon, spa or on a cruise ship).
Why Train With The Southern School of Beauty Therapy?
We pride ourselves as being small enough to offer a personal and friendly service, but big enough to provide the
appropriate high standard of facilities necessary, and this is reflected in the fact that over half our business is from repeat bookings.
With a maximum of 6 students (8 on a few courses), you can be sure of plenty of individual help and attention, and because
we don't have
any minimum numbers you can also relax in the knowledge that your course will
go ahead, even if you are the only student.
All products and equipment needed for the days courses will be supplied, so you don't need to bring anything but yourself.
As we also offer the NVQ
qualification you can rest assured that we have strict guidance and monitoring on our course content from the awarding body, so
you do decide to go on to take the further qualification, the training provided will enable you to do this.
We understand that when you first learn a new skill, you will feel nervous and although many students pick up the
techniques very quickly, some will find that after practice, they have some questions or feel they could benefit from a
days troubleshooting, that is why we have practice sessions available for all of the courses we run, so you can come back at a
minimum cost to run through your procedures and fine tune your skills under the watchful eye of one of our student mentors

What Our Students Say About Us
"Dear Allison, I really enjoyed both courses and I am so happy that I chose your school to train to become a beauty therapist, .
Jenny is a fantastic trainer, she is very professional and she definitely knows what makes the difference between a good and an outstanding beauty therapist. She does not merely pass on theoretical knowledge and practical skills, but shares an approach and attitude that are absolutely priceless. I feel very lucky that she was the instructor on most of my courses, she had a great impact on how I'll run my business in the future.
Many thanks, Zsanett
"I am currently looking to change career into the beauty industry and the Southern School of Beauty
is helping me to achieve this. I have already undertaken a number of short courses and find them to be very
thorough and professional, as well as being held in a warm and friendly environment. I would recommend SSBT to
anyone either looking to change career or to enhance their existing skills.
I have found that nothing is too much trouble for Allison and the team at SSBT, compared to other
training centres that I have attended. They are also at the end of the phone to answer any queries and offer a first class service."
