Accreditation FAQ'S

APPLY FOR SHORT COURSE ACCREDITATION

WHAT IS ACCREDITATION AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO HAVE MY TRAINING SCHOOL ACCREDITED?

When you will be teaching students, you will need to issue them with certificates once they have completed the training with you. For this certificate to be able to be used for insurance purposes, it requires a stamp of approval so that your students know they are able to obtain insurance which will then allow them to work on clients by buying public liability insurance. This will not be possible if you are not registered and approved with an accrediting body such as ourselves.
 

The accreditation process allows the British Beauty Group to check and ensure that the content of each course being offered by you meets our insurance requirements in order to be  able to offer your students insurance once they have completed your  training.  


WHAT QUALIFICATIONS WILL I NEED TO START TEACHING?

All tutors need to be members of the British Beauty Group and must  be qualified in the subject they wish to teach. They must also hold a  recognised teaching qualification.  


WHO ISSUES CERTIFICATES TO MY STUDENTS WHEN THEY HAVE COMPLETED MY TRAINING?

You will be issuing your own certificates to your students once you  are satisfied that they are competent enough in carrying out what they  have been taught. We will require an example of the certificate you will  be issuing to your students and it must have our stamp (logo) on it.  
 

DO YOU ACCEPT COURSES ACCREDITED BY OTHER ORGANISATIONS?

All applications are processed on an individual case basis. We will  look at your application and let you know about this at the time of  application. Please click here to find out more.   
 

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR THE ACCREDITATION PROCESS?

Upon receiving your application, the accreditation process should be  complete within 21 working days. In the case where further information  may be required from you, this may take slightly longer. 

 

DOES MY TRAINING HAVE TO BE CARRIED OUT AT ONE FIXED LOCATION?

You do not have to operate from one place as long as the same  content is included and the same procedures are followed. This therefore  allows you to operate anywhere in the UK including teaching at other individual salons/venues.
 

WHAT INFORMATION DO I NEED TO SEND YOU?
