Beauticians are specialists in discussing and understanding client requirements, analysing and advising on skincare and beauty regimes, giving treatments, and applying cosmetics. Completion of a Beauty Therapy diploma can lead to job roles such as beauty therapist, spa manager, salon manager and dermatology specialist, to name a few.

This industry is particularly strong, with nearly £2 billion a year spent on beauty treatments. Forecasts also predict that between 2020 and 2025, the increase in jobs for beauticians and related roles in England will be 40% higher than for the overall job market.

As of 2020, the UK beauty industry directly employs over 370,000 people and a further 220,000 jobs are supported through the beauty products supply chain.
