VTCT qualifications are recognised worldwide . so if you plan to work abroad your chance of employment is greatly improved by having these qualifications.
Associated Irish Therapists (AIT) are a recognised body within the beauty and therapy industry, meaning our courses are approved, validated and insurable by the UK/ Ireland’s leading membership and insurance provider. This accreditation proves that our courses are of a high standard and that our lecturers are qualified to deliver teaching.
Our Beacon Academy courses are aimed at those students who are not quite sure about making the leap into the aesthetics industry but want to develop their knowledge in skin and laser treatments for their own personal use. These courses are not accredited but we are excited to share our love of skincare with you and perhaps kickstart a new career!
