Teaching With The Guild
There is a huge demand for training in the professional beauty industry which is why, for so many therapists, the next step in their career is into teaching. Treatment trends come and go, but the demand for training remains constant. Working as a beauty therapist, holistic therapist, nail technician or hairdresser in a salon or in your own business gives you years of valuable experience. You can put this experience to use by training the next generation of beauty professionals.
Any training courses you offer need to be accredited to be accepted for insurance purposes. The Guild of Beauty Therapists accredits more training centres and courses than any other organisation in the UK, which makes Guild accredited training the most sought after in the industry. The Guild is also the largest professional beauty trade body in the UK, and the largest provider of insurance to therapists and salons.
Guild Training International (GTi) is the training arm of the Guild. GTi courses have been written by the industry experts and meet the required National Occupational Standards (NOS). Fully accredited and accepted by all the main insurance providers, GTi courses are highly popular with students as they combine the flexibility of online study with expert practical classroom training. Providing you meet the requirements, you could apply to offer students GTi training courses from your training centre or salon.
