hi,, i really want to become a beauty therapist and the ITEC Level 2 Diploma for beauty specialists is the only course i will be able to do,,,,

but im getting very scared looking at job adverts which dont even mention ITEC And look for cibtac or cidesco

is there a reason for this

and do you think i could work as a beauty therapist with the ITEC Level 2 Diploma for beauty specialists

id love to hear from you

can anyone help?/
ITEC is perfect for working in Ireland, start with that and then do 2 day courses with CND etc to specialize in different areas. Try and get work experience asap, HTH :)
Could you call some of these jobs and ask their opinion? Say your very keen on a career in Beauty and have seen this course and wondered if it will be accepted as a suitable qualification to start your career with, you can then take names and numbers try to keep in touch which would be a great way to gain contacts in the industry and possibly work experience etc.

You can also try this with local salons - flatter them call and ask to speak to the manager/owner and say you'd love to work in a salon such as yours one day and wanted the salon owners/managers valuable opinion if this course is suitable to start your career with etc you can then start networking with them etc

hope that makes sense!
