Additional information

Cost & payment terms: The cost of the training is £2995. A £300 booking fee is required to confirm your place – please see the terms and conditions. The balance of the training fee can be paid over the duration of the course by bank transfer of 12 payments of £225.00.
Prerequisites: This course is suitable for beginners and requires commitment, a desire to excel and a professional mature attitude. Evidence of past achievement at post-16 level is welcome but not essential.
Course structure: We use a variety of teaching methods which will vary according to the groups we have. There will be hands-on training, conducted according to the government and APNT social distancing and practice guidelines, and also online learning. Much learning is through practical application, discussion, exploration with treatments performed on each other until safe correct techniques have been mastered. You will then progress to working on clients and will be able to evaluate the effectiveness of your treatments and complete task work quickly during the course.
Term dates: This course follows the Coventry City Council term dates.
Additional study required: The practical part of the course will be delivered in person at weekends, and you will be expected to attend online theory training as well. The exact dates will be arranged with students after registration. There will be homework and assignments to complete between sessions. We envisage the whole course being delivered over one year, with another year taken to complete the 200 hours of case studies required to be submitted.
How you are assessed:

You will need to submit a portfolio of work, which includes:

  • assessed assignments
  • assessed practicals
  • examinations for each of the therapy topics
  • approximately 200 case studies.

The A&P will be assessed by an online examination.

Kit required: You will be required to purchase essential oils, carrier oils, massage mediums and reflexology mediums. When carrying out treatments outside the Centre you will need to provide couch covers, pillow cases, towels and PPE. Current prices for these are being compiled.
Workwear required: If you are new to the industry, you will be required to purchase at least one professional salon tunic from Harveys Workwear: You will need to wear closed toes shoes, not sandals, clogs or boots when in the centre and providing treatments.
Exam fees: Registrations last for 3 years. We will give you the up to date list of fees for exams and assessments when you need to do them as the prices may change in the meantime. If you have previously completed a City & Guilds qualification, it would be helpful to use your existing enrolment number which can be found on your certificate.
