Course Booking Information

Please read through the following and make sure each point has been completed prior to attending your course.

With new regulations surrounding training, there are some extra features that we have had to add to keep everyone safe and well. Please read through everything and make sure you understand it.  If you have any questions, please drop me a message and I can answer anything you need to know.

I know some of this seems daunting but please do not worry about anything.  We have carried out a very thorough risk assessments to cover as many possibilities as we can.  I will always do my best to make sure your training is in the most relaxed and enjoyable environment, but also that you feel comfortable knowing that the health of everyone has been taken into consideration.

Course Payments

All of our ‘in person’ training courses are available to be booked with either a 10% deposit or full payment.  If you choose to pay just a deposit on booking, you will be required to pay the balance of your course no later than 48 hours before your course date.  Please note that all deposits are non-refundable.

Our online courses require full payment at the time of booking.

If you have used a discount code at the time of booking, the discount will be applied to your final payment.

Before Attending

All beauty therapy courses with Beauty in a Blink Training Academy are fully accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists, the UK’s leading professional beauty trade body, for membership and insurance purposes.  Students who enrol on GTi courses are assured of the highest quality of theory and practical tuition.  Upon completion of each course, students will receive a GTi Award in their chosen discipline.

Please note that the number of theory and practical hours required to complete these courses will vary depending on the speed at which you learn.  The number of case studies required also depends on each individual student.

All of our practical course prices include the GTi Professional Standards for Therapists course and essential Health & Safety courses (PPE and Barbicide) .  You will be prompted to complete these courses online after making a course purchase.

Before training with us you are required to be registered with the Guild of Beauty Therapists – if you are not already registered with the Guild please get in touch after you have purchased your course and we will sort this for you.

GTi Student Membership allows you access to the GTi training courses you are enrolled for up to 3 months and includes a number of other online Guild services. It does not include insurance. Once you have completed your GTi training course you can save £25 when you upgrade to Full Guild membership with insurance.

  • Free and discounted Guild Training International (GTi) courses
  • 3 month Guild Gazette Magazine subscription worth £11.90
  • £25 when upgrading to Full Guild Membership
Once you have booked your training course and are registered with the Beauty Guild you will be able to complete theory modules for the course right away.  On completion of the online theory modules, a practical session code will be displayed on the final module – you will need to give us this code when you come for your practical training.  When you have successfully completed your practical training and have been passed by your tutor, a GTi certificate will be available for you to download or purchase.

Please could you take time to carry out these two free and short online courses.  The first is regarding hygiene in the workplace and the other is proper donning and doffing of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).

On The Day

Arrival
When you arrive at the Academy please follow all Covid guidance as advertised. There will be a hand sanitising station on arrival.

What to Wear
We recommend you wear suitable clothing to be able to perform the treatment safely.  Ideally a beauty tunic if you have one but if not, comfortable clothing.  Long hair will need to be tied back.

You will need to bring your own PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).  You will need a disposable apron, gloves and a visor/mask.  Your model will also need to bring their own mask.  If required packs of PPE can be purchased on arrival for £2 (cash only).

Please avoid lots of jewellery or long flowing sleeves as they can interfere with your ability to perform the treatment.

We ask that you keep personal items to a minimum and remind you that your personal belongings remain your own responsibility at all times.  Please bring a pen so you can take notes during your training session.

Refreshments
Due to the use of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), I will be giving everyone a break after 2 hours to have a ‘mask break’.

You and your model are welcome to bring snacks/lunch/drinks with you or there are plenty of shops locally if you wish to purchase anything to eat.

Toilet Facilities
The toilet facilities will be available for use during the time at the Academy and will be thoroughly cleaned by our staff between use.

Model Instructions
We recommend that your model(s) is not pregnant as pregnancy is contraindicated with some of our courses.  Your model(s) needs to have completed the Covid consent form 24 hours before the course.
