  • What should I wear on the Training Day?
    In order to present a professional image of the industry and for hygiene reasons, we require you to wear a salon tunic/ uniform when attending training. If you are just attending a one day course and do not currently have a uniform, please wear smart black trousers and a black short sleeved top. Please ensure that you are suitably dressed to give and receive a treatment and allow you to move freely and comfortably during practical activities. Please wear flat, black, closed toe shoes and ensure long hair is tied back. We advise you to remove all jewellery before attending courses (small stud earrings and plain wedding bands are acceptable). Nail should be short, free of polish and nail extensions for holistic and massage courses.

    Some courses will require you to purchase a kit. This will be noted on the course information page, any queries please contact us for guidance on kit contents and costs if not stated. Kits can be pre-ordered for you.
  • Why are your Diploma Courses shorter than Colleges of Further Education ?
    All of our courses are intensive and comprehensive to prepare you for commercial practice. We provide a fast-track system of training in small groups of students, 1-1 and 1-2 mainly, who really want to learn, which speeds the whole process up. Although we cover the essential theory most of the training is practical. You are expected to study at home and undertake further study and do lots more practice, which you would otherwise do during your college time on site. Our courses include more personalised one to one tuition, whilst when attending a large college you may have to attend for up to 36 weeks and be in a class of up to 30 students or more.
  • What is the difference between a NVQ and a Diploma ?
    The difference between a NVQ and a Michelle Collins Spa and Beauty Training Diploma, is an NVQ is a nationally recognised qualification and can be more attractive to a potential employer. However, The MCSBT Diploma is ideal for those wishing to work as a mobile therapist or self employed and will enable you to gain public liability insurance. Some Spas and Salons will now accept Diplomas depending on the course content studied and the individual’s attitude. Our courses are written to National Occupational Standards as set out by HABIA and are fully accredited with Professional Beauty Direct.
  • What do I need to bring along with me to the course?
    We provide all products, tools and equipment needed for your course, unless otherwise stated.You may wish to bring a pen and notepad.
