Can you believe it’s autumn already? Where does the time go? When you look back on your year, are the dreams and ambitions you had in January still waiting to happen? And how likely is it that, now there are only three months of 2018 left to go, they’ll probably keep waiting until you add them to your ‘to do’ list for next year? Even then, how likely is it they’ll still be waiting to happen when next autumn rolls around?

Dreams and ambitions are powerful because they can change our lives. But only if we do something about them.

We know what it’s like because we’ve been there too. Whether it’s because of family commitments, or money worries, or because the job we’re currently doing (that we don’t actually enjoy) is demanding too much of our time or… well… for a million other different reasons (including the one that says “I want to start something new but I’m not ready for a change”), we’ve all got dreams and ambitions we want to make happen but somehow we just don’t seem able to do it.

Well here’s some good news. If your dream was to begin a career in beauty therapy, you don’t have to wait any longer. Here at the LBTA, we offer so many different courses and so much learning flexibility that you’ll always be able to fit your training around your busy schedule and, when you’ve finished your training, your new beauty career will fit around your busy schedule too.

Don’t let tuition fees hold you back

If you haven’t thought about beauty training because you believe it will be too expensive and you can’t afford the tuition fees, a government-funded Advanced Learner loan could help pay for your LBTA education and you’ll only have to begin repayments after you’ve finished your course and you’re earning over £25,000 a year. There are other funding options available as well – just get in touch and we’ll give you all the advice you need to help you make the right decision.

So many courses to choose from…

Of course, before you start thinking about funding you’ll want to choose the course that’s best for you. For example, if you want to gain all the knowledge and practical skills to enter the beauty therapy industry and work in a fantastic spa or salon (or even for yourself!) our VTCT Level 2 and Level 3 Diplomas in Beauty Therapy Studies and Treatments are specifically designed to launch your career. Or maybe you’d like to specialise in nail tech or make-up artistry? Our VTCT Level 2 Certificate in Nail Technology and Level 3 Diploma in Nail Technology, or our VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Make-Up Artistry, will give you all the talents you need to find amazing work as soon as you’ve qualified from the Academy.

But what if your time is so limited you can’t commit to one of those main courses? It’s not a problem. We also offer an incredible selection of shorter courses which means you can begin developing your beauty therapy, nail tech, bridal hair or make-up skills straight away. And don’t think that, just because these courses are shorter (some of them as short as a single day), they’ll be any less valuable on your CV. All our courses are especially designed with the industry’s needs in mind, so that after your training you’ll have exactly the skillset your future employers will be looking for. Also, our courses are professionally accredited and many of them don’t even require prior knowledge or experience.

And what about after your training?

Excuse the pun, but the beauty of a career in beauty therapy (or one of the beauties, anyway!) is the control it gives you over your own life. That means, depending on the qualifications you’ve chosen, you could either work for an employer in a salon or spa, go freelance and work for yourself (mobile or from your own home), or even enter the glamorous worlds of high-fashion, film or television, where your skills and creativity could really get you noticed.

Only want to work for a few hours or days each week? Or only on specific times during the year, but still knowing that when you want to come back there will always be opportunities and clients available? A beauty therapy qualification will allow you to do all of that. That’s why it’s the perfect choice for people who have busy lives to manage, or for mothers who want to return to work now that their children are starting (or heading back to) school, or if you’ve spent a lot of time away from work but want to start working again, in a career where your skills will be immediately valued and appreciated and the financial and personal rewards can be incredible once you’ve established yourself and built up a regular clientele. It won’t take you long to do that, either. With the invaluable skills you’ve learned at the LBTA, plus your personality, passion and hard work, you’ll be amazed by how quickly your career starts to happen.

It all begins NOW
