Hi you need to have grades c and above in english lit and lang aswell as maths to apply for this, the local colleges in your area should provide details of access courses into teaching and if you have a college near you that provides beauty courses then it would help calling them and asking for information on it. Hope this helps

I went to a local college to do my teacher training. you have to be able to get hours teachin beauty somewhere as part of the course. to qualify as a part time teacher takes 1 year, to be a full time teacher takes 2 years. things may have changed a bit now but thats how it was about 3 years ago.

I have not long qualified on the teaching programme to become a beauty therapy lecturer.
You need to hold the level three in beauty therapy and with this you take it to a College that does Open University courses. The course you want is called a PGCE or Cert Ed. You then enrol on the course and you can get the fees paid for by your local authority. This will be explained to you when asked by yourself, who your local authority is. With this you need to see if the College can give you hours, part time on a voluntary basis, teaching beauty therapy. You will be given a mentor, this is a professional tutor who already teaches this course and she will guide you on how to deliver and assess beauty therapy. You also need a level 2 in literacy and numeracy however you can do this parallel to the course. It takes two years to complete and you will learn a lot from this course in addition to giving you the correct way on how to conduct a class. If you want to teach beauty therapy then I would defiantly go for it and you will end up graduating with your cap and gown and become a member of the University that runs it via the College.
