The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that the provider has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future.
The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 2 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.
The course itself has been designed by UK Learning to meet specific learners' and/or employers' requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.
Possible Career Path
Nail technicians use their creativity and skill to improve the appearance and condition of their clients’ nails. As a nail technician, you would first discuss with clients the type of nail treatment they want, and check for any signs of skin or nail disease which could be affected by the treatment. Your work would typically include: basic treatments, such as manicures and pedicures, preparing the natural nails by cleaning and filing them, applying false nails or extensions, decorating the nails with coloured varnish, transfers, gems or glitter, painting designs onto the nails with an airbrush, either free-hand or using a stencil and repairing, maintaining and removing false nails and extensions. You would also advise clients about aftercare, and recommend nail care products. Health and safety is an extremely important part of the work. You would need to make sure that you use and store chemicals and varnishes correctly. You would also need to use tools carefully and follow strict hygiene procedures to prevent damage or infection to your clients' natural nails.
