Beauty Distance Learning Christmas Gifts

From Kara and the team at Athena Beauty Training Centre, we hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

With Christmas just around the corner, you’re probably panicking if you’ve not already got your gift ideas sorted!

If you know someone who wants to get started in beauty therapy or gain additional skills to offer in a salon setting, why not gift them a beauty distance learning course as a Christmas present?

This is a really easy way for them to start learning from the comfort of their own home and around prior commitments.

At the end of the course, they’ll gain a Recognised Athena Beauty Training Centre Distance Learning Certificate.

Many of the distance learning courses include e-learning and are supported by ITEC. This includes video tutorials.

Here are a few of the distance learning courses that could be gifted this Christmas:

Beauty Specialist Diploma – Level 2 – 

This course covers manicure, pedicure, makeup, waxing, eye treatments, and facials. Students will learn about being professional, the anatomy and physiology of the face, neck and body, skin and eye treatments, using makeup, performing manicures and pedicures, depilation, and cosmetic science.

Facial Massage and Skincare Certificate –

This course covers professional ethics, health and safety considerations, skin diseases and disorders, contra-indications, anatomy and physiology, skin cleansing/toning/moisturising techniques, facial and neck massage techniques, mask mixing and application, product knowledge and equipment/materials knowledge, and client aftercare.

Body Massage Certificate – 

This course covers professional ethics, health and safety considerations, anatomy and physiology, skin diseases and disorders, contra-indications, history and development of massage, the benefits and effects of massage for clients, materials/equipment and products knowledge, and client aftercare.

Here’s a full list of our distance learning courses –

We recommend that a practical course with one of our tutors is also taken alongside a distance learning course — especially if the recipient plans to offer the services in a salon setting later on. This gives the opportunity to put their knowledge and skills into action.


We’ve got special offers on some of our courses at the moment, which you can see here –
