VTCT is the specialist awarding body for the Hairdressing, Beauty Therapy, Complementary Therapy and Sport and Active Leisure sectors, with over 45 years of experience. It is regulated by national organisations including Ofqual, SQA, DCELLS and CCEA. As a registered charity investing in education and skills the VTCT also donates to good causes in the area of facial disfigurement.
K2U Training offers a number of Level 2 & Level 3 Complementary Therapy qualifications, each developed to meet the criteria set out by VTCT. Unlike many training establishments, K2U Training does not offer crash courses or fully distance learning as we believe the student deserves education to be delivered in more appropriate time scales, an increased number of contact teaching hours allows a higher standard of tuition and the opportunity to develop a greater understanding.
Kathryn Robinson – having taught within further education establishments since 2002, felt the duration of courses and contact teaching hours were being decreased to the point of not allowing the student to gain sufficient in depth knowledge or high standard of practical skills to equip them for employment within the industry. After approaching the VTCT and completing the registration process, including two inspections, January 2012 saw K2U Therapies become an accredited training academy.
A non-refundable deposit is to be paid at the time of booking along with qualification registration fee. The balance may be paid in full prior to the course commencing or through a monthly payment plan. All fees must be paid before final assessments, certification will be withheld if full payment has not been received.
Methods of Learning
Learning is blended to include theory based sessions, which in addition to being delivered on site can also be delivered either by skype or Google hangouts, home study assignments and workbooks, development of practical skills in a fully operational treatment clinic. Case studies will also be included in the home study.
Continual assessment is carried out throughout the course, workbooks and assignments will be set to confirm knowledge and understanding. In some units there will be an externally set mandatory written test. The assessor will carry out formal observations during clinical sessions to ensure the criteria for the practical elements has been met. Lever arch file will be provided by K2U Training.
