During your training you will be required to give and receive treatments. Please note courses may be mixed sex groups. Male students are required to provide a female model If you have personal or religious reasons where you require training in a same sex environment only, please discuss this with our Course Advisors before booking. All courses are taught only in English. All students are therefore required to have a good command of the English language, both written and spoken. This is essential so that the tutor is able to assess a students competence of all required aspects to achieve Lily louise Beauty Academy Diploma. Students must advise of any language issues at the time of booking as we may recommend one to one training as a more suitable training option (for which additional cost applies, see below). Should a student be unable to demonstrate the required level of English to participate fully within the course, they may be refused the diploma and would unfortunately forfeit any course fees paid. Therefore it is important to discuss this prior to booking if you feel this may be an issue affecting your learning and course participation.

All students are required to disclose any medical conditions at the time of booking, which will be dealt in the strictest of confidence. Some conditions may impede ability to participate fully within a course. An important part of training is to deliver and receive treatments.

Where possible we seek to include students with special requirements within our main course delivery. However for some students this may not be possible.

Feasibility depends upon the course you are wishing to study; however where possible adjustments or special arrangements will be considered. Please note an additional cost will apply for training on a one to


Many of our students gain discount cards with leading beauty wholesalers and cosmetic brands following completion of our training courses using Lily louise Beauty Academy diploma along with proof of valid insurance being held; or on presentation of the qualification certificate (e.g. VTCT certificate) as proof of their eligibility to purchase professional products. However we can accept no responsibility and have no control over individual student eligibility or ability to acquire these discounts. We make no guarantee over eligibility and this is at the discretion of the individual supplier / wholesaler. Beauty Insurance (Public Liability Insurance) Following your practical training, you will receive Lily louise Beauty Academy diploma by email (as discussed above) which will allow you to apply for beauty insurance to allow you to begin working on members of the public. This will allow you to begin working on a self-employed basis (mobile) and to take payments should you wish. Our courses are covered by a number of insurance providers including ABT insurance and Balens insurance. You must ensure you register with HMRC regarding any tax/national insurance applicable to any income earned on this basis. We recommend ABT insurance for Lily Beauty Academy students. Please note if you wish to obtain cover with a specific insurer, you must check with the insurer prior to booking your course that they will accept our Diploma. Most insurers will however accept the qualifications including NVQ, VRQ and City & Guilds awards. Insurers work to their own discretion over preferred training providers and this is beyond our control. If you hold an existing policy, you are responsible to ensure the insurance provider will extend your cover to include the new treatment(s) and for covering any cost to make changes. Lily louise Beauty Academy cannot accept responsibility for issues resulting with insurance companies where students fail to check this prior to booking. Previous Advanced Learner Loan Students will not receive Lily Louise Beauty Academy diplomas as standard as this is not covered by the funding and so are unable to apply for insurance until they complete their full qualification award. Refresher Training Following training, students should begin practising treatments as soon as possible while the knowledge and skills are freshly learnt. Students are recommended to ensure they put public liability insurance in place before taking on paying clients. Students are advised to refer to the Practical Training notes provided with the Booking Confirmation email following training to refresh your knowledge and assist you with the treatment routines etc. Students are welcome to contact the Support Team with any questions. Should you be unable to practice your skills and/or require additional training at a later stage, please note additional fees apply per training day required.
