The VTCT Level 2 Award in Facial Massage and Skin Care is a qualification which aims to teach you how to provide facial skin care. Whilst studying for the qualification, you’ll develop an understanding of health and safety practices, as well as a knowledge of how to consult with clients to ensure they get an effective treatment. At the end of the course, you’ll be able to offer facial massage and skin care services to your clients professionally. 

Course Units:

This course consists of three mandatory units, which are worth a total of 12 credits. They are:

  • Health and safety practices.
  • Client care and communication.
  • Providing facial skin care.

The last unit is worth the most credits, as this is where you will begin to really hone your skills. 

The units are assessed by a mixture of question papers, observations and assignments. You’ll be asked to create a portfolio of evidence throughout the course to show to the assessor. If you complete an external paper, you’ll need to achieve a pass mark of 70%. 

What you will learn:

You will learn how to effectively perform treatments on a variety of skin types including dry, oily and combination. You’ll also be able to understand how to treat skin conditions such as sensitive or dehydrated skin. You will be able to use a variety of equipment including a magnifying lamp and skin warming devices. 

When working as a therapist, you’ll need to use various facial products including cleansers, toners, moisturisers and specialised skin products. During the course, you’ll learn about the art of facial massage and how to work with cream and oil to provide an effective treatment. Lastly, you’ll be taught about advising the client on aftercare – avoiding certain activities and care routines at home.
