Level 2 Nail Technology

Develop practical skills in providing and maintaining nails and providing nail art to a high level of ability.

Course Overview

You will develop skills in nail technology to a high level of occupational ability, enabling students to perform salon services. This qualification is approved and supported by the Hairdressing and Beauty Industry Authority (HABIA).

This programme has been specifically designed to develop the learner’s practical skills in applications and maintaining nail enhancements and producing creative nail art. You will also develop a sound knowledge of health and safety practices in a salon environment and learn how to promote client care and communications in beauty-related sectors. You will also develop an underpinning knowledge and understanding of the practical skills learned throughout this qualification

Course Assessment

You will be assessed through external online exams and assignments for each unit, testing the knowledge and understanding of each unit, plus anatomy and physiology. Observations for each unit are carried out throughout the academic year in the realistic working environment sessions on paying clients.

As this is an intensive part-time Study Programme, students will be required to carry out additional practical and theoretical study at home. Due to it being a vocational course, students are required to initially practise all treatments on each other before applying what they have learned on real clients.

Course Progression

On successful completion, you could progress onto our Level 2 Beauty Therapy programme. Alternatively, you could seek employment in the nail services industry, providing a range of nail services.
