How do I become a trainer for beauty and hairdressing courses?
Hello! Ready to take your passion for beauty and hairdressing to the next level? Study entirely online and at your own pace to become a beauty or hairdressing trainer depending on which level courses you'd like to teach.
In most cases the Level 3 Award in Education and Training AET previously PTLLS Course and 7303 would be sufficient for teaching beauty and hairdressing courses because most beauty courses are at level 3 or below. Some of the courses you can train your learners on after doing the AET Course, are the Level 3 Diploma in Beauty Therapy Treatments, the Level 3 NVQ Certificate in Beauty Therapy Massage (QCF) and the Level 3 Diploma in Women's Hairdressing.
How can I teach Level 4 Beauty and Hairdressing courses?
Our beauty trainers who choose the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training, CET Course also previously known as CTLLS Course and 7304 do so because they usually want to become a beauty trainer for higher-level or more technical courses like cosmetology and invasive procedures including use of lasers or needles. Examples of courses you will be able to train for after doing the CET are: Level 4 Diploma in Management Practice and Advanced Techniques in the Hair and Beauty Sector & Level 4 Diploma in Management Practice & Advanced Techniques in the Hair and Beauty Sector - Theatrical and Media Make-up.
Do I really need the Level 5 DET to teach Beauty and Hairdressing?
The Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training, DET Course previously known as DTLLS Course and 7305 is required to become a qualified trainer at a beauty and hairdressing college or a training academy. This Level 5 teaching qualification will allow you to teach courses like the Level 5 Extended Diploma in Hair and Beauty Management, the Level 5 Certificate in Hairdressing, the Level 5 Skincare, Eye Treatments & Makeup or the Level 5 Manicure, Pedicure & Waxing.
After this Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training, you can apply for the QTLS (fully qualified teaching status) and even start your own beauty and hairdresser training salon.
How to become an Assessor in Beauty and Hairdressing?
If you wish to assess beauty or hairdressing courses, you can study the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) course, Assessor Course, if you're unable to meet the requirements for this course, but still wish to become a beauty assessor, you can study the theory unit only Assessor qualification and get a chance at a parttime job as a beauty assessor. Then once you have at least 2 learners on any beauty course you can come back and add on the practical units. The same applies if you wish to become a hairdressing assessor.
The reason you need the full CAVA qualification for beauty and hairdressing is that in these sectors you would always assess your learners on the theory first in a simulation or classroom setting like test, Q&A, model heads, dummy hair or nails etc. Once the theory is done, you would definitely observe and assess your learners with real customers in a salon.
What is the pay for a Beauty and Hairdressing trainer assessor?
At the time of publishing the below beauty trainer and assessor, jobs pay well as can be seen below. Please note this may change over time, by region or depending on the employer.
- Assessor/Trainer in Hairdressing (£26,745 - £30,100 a year)
- Beauty Course Trainer (£22 an hour - Part-time)
- Beauty Level 2 or Level 3 Assessor (£9 an hour - Part-time)
What course do I need to assess beauty apprentices?
There are many types of beauty and hairdressing apprenticeships which are getting funded in the UK right now. To assess these you would need the Level 3 End Point Assessor Course. This would enable you to assess any beauty apprentices where you can demonstrate that you have that particular expertise e.g. someone with competence or expertise in hairdressing may not be able to assess an apprentice studying makeup and waxing.
For the beauty industry, we usually recommend the full CAVA Course as described in the section above because it qualifies you to assess any beauty and hairdressing NVQ courses that you have experience with as well as the apprentices. Most awarding bodies and employers will accept a CAVA instead of the EPA course for beauty assessors and apprentices.

This is a great introductory qualification. It will enable you to understand the basic principles behind teaching and help to build up your knowledge and confidence within a teaching environment. It is a fairly quick (around 3-6 months) course and is easily achieved online or within a classroom environment. You do not have to have any teaching experience and there is no requirement to be in a teaching position as it is mostly theory-based, however, you will also be required to do an observed micro-teach as well in order for you to demonstrate what you have learned.
