…anyone wanting to work in the beauty industry, particularly those wanting to specialise in nail treatments.
The VTCT Level 3 NVQ Award in Nail Enhancements using UV Gel has been specifically designed to develop your practical skills in providing nail enhancement techniques using UV gel systems, as well as learning about the condition of the skin and nails.

You’ll be expected to work on realistic clients in a commercial environment and also be responsible for developing your own 'client base'.

After this course, you could progress to further qualifications, such as VTCT Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Nail Services, VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Theatrical, Special Effects, Hair and Media Make-up or VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Nail Technology. You could also go directly into employment or self-employment.
