- to provide opportunities for staff in the Beauty Therapy Industry to gain a Level 2 qualification
- to qualify learners at Level 2 in the Beauty Therapy Industry
- to sustain the interest of learners wanting to work in the Beauty Therapy Industry
- to encourage knowledge and understanding of the Beauty Therapy Industry at Level 2
- to provide opportunities for learners to focus on the development of the major functional skills and the wider functional
skills in a beauty therapy context, such as communicating with clients, working with others and problem solving
- to provide opportunities for learners to develop a range of skills, techniques, personal qualities and attitudes essential for successful performance in employment as a beauty therapist
Case studies are also required to be completed for this award. The case studies form the internal assessment and should be assessed throughout the training by the tutor using the ITEC Case Study Assessment sheet. The case studies are then verified by an ITEC Examiner at the end of the course during the visit for invigilating the practical examination. The case studies ensure that a variety of clients must be consulted and treated in all the above areas and the outcomes of the treatments must be documented in order to gain experience of working with a variety of clients and conditions whilst candidates are still under supervision. Detailed rationales for the choice of treatment and outcomes must be shown, as well as after care and product advice.
