Further Career Pathways

There are a wide variety of careers in beauty therapy, aesthetics, and health care. Each career pathway requires commitment to achieve the necessary qualifications. The content of this module is UK focused, providing guidance regarding career pathways that are available to you. If you are studying outside of the UK, your tutor will mentor you in accessing sources of career advice in your area.


Level 3 Certificate – Basic massage therapy

At this level skills are gained to treat clients for relaxation, stress relief and an all-round sense of wellbeing. Understanding of how the pressure and massage techniques affect the systems of the body are studied to allow you to achieve client requirements.


Complementary / Holistic Therapist

Complementary (otherwise known as holistic therapists) offer treatments that work alongside conventional treatments and medicine.

Most complementary therapy training starts at level 3 and most therapists will commence their training with massage at level 2/3.

Reflexology – is a complex therapy system in which the feet, hands and ears are used to bring about changes within the systems of the body. The principle of the therapy is to stimulate regulation of energy (chi) to bring about homeostasis in the body’s systems.

Aromatherapy – is the use of plant, wood and seed extracts (essential oils) to bring about changes in the mind and body. A level of organic chemistry and botany understanding is required to ensure that correct extracts are selected and prescribed in appropriate dosages. This therapy goes hand in hand with massage to provide outstanding results.


Non-Medical Aesthetics Pathway

Most embarking on a career as a non-medical aesthetician will start at level 3 or 4. In saying this if your passion is skin health, taking the time to start with a course in basic facials training at level 2 will give you a strong foundation of understanding and is well worth the investment.


Level 3 Facials – Advanced therapist level

The options for technical training at level 3 are the same as for beauty therapy (discussed previously). Therapists wanting to develop their understanding and expertise in the use of a variety of applications that bring about changes in the skin can train in the following areas:

• Galvanic facials: Disencrustation; Iontophoresis, Microcurrent and other electro-muscle stimulation treatments, High frequency, Microdermabrasion, Diathermy for permanent hair removal and micro-lancing (first level blemish removal)


Level 4 Aesthetic practitioner level:

At level 4, technical training becomes more invasive and requires commitment to develop the hands-on skills to satisfy both beauty and aesthetic industries. Many beauty therapists will enter into level 4 at this level after completing level 3 in beauty therapy.

• Advanced epilation techniques (skin tag and red vein removal)

• First level laser and light treatment for permanent hair removal and skin rejuvenation

• Hair and scalp specialist services

• Micro-pigmentation (semi-permanent make-up) and microblading

• Ultrasound therapy, Radio frequency, Skin needling, Skin peeling


Level 5 Non-Medical Aesthetics:
