Weekly catch up!

Wow, what a crazy busy week we had last week with new VTCT course enquiries! I wonder if this is because of what’s happening right now so people are looking for a career change, or whether people are just dying to do a new hobby after being stuck home for so long! But either way we are really excited to meet lots of new students this summer. We have had 109 new students register over the last week!

The most popular courses so far seem to be the VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Makeup Artistry and the VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Nail Technology. And what’s great about these two qualifications is that once you are qualified there is such a demand for makeup and nails. And what’s even better you can be qualified by Christmas for these two courses too! Get ready for the Christmas rush!

As if we are thinking about Christmas already, but actually it’s only six months away, crazy!

Check out some of our courses below…

We hope you’re staying safe and we hope to see lots of you soon! x

We can’t wait to see you again!

We have spent the last week preparing our Seaham and Sunderland academy to make sure social distancing can be adhered to and making sure it is safe for our lovely students to return. We have sanitising stations and masks available, as well as disposable cups. We also have signs up around our academy to help you stay safe with us.

We will be open fully from July and running both our VTCT Level 3 and short courses, which we are very excited about!

The secret is already out that we are running a VTCT Level 3 beauty course in July now as well as September (spaces still available on both). We have an exciting new course starting in July, which is a VTCT Level 4 diploma in salon management. This is a fabulous vocational qualification that will help you develop ways to gain employment as a salon manager and you could be able to run your own hairdressing or beauty salon! As well as this VTCT course, we also now have a level 3 certificate in assessing vocational achievement AND a level 4 award in the internal quality assurance of assessment processes and practice. Head over to our VTCT Qualification section to take a look! https://bellamarietrainingacademy.com/vtct-qualifications/

But don’t worry! Although we will be up and running again from July we will still have our online courses and distance learning courses available. We have exciting new online courses coming next month as well so watch this space!


We have new VTCT Level 3 courses starting from September 2020! These include beauty therapy, nail technology, make up, hairdressing and barbering! These courses are perfect to help pursue your dream job and once completed your VTCT qualification will not only be recognised nationally but also internationally and will enable you to work in salons, department stores, cruise ships, training establishments and mobile!

Our VTCT level 3 courses are funded by an advanced learner loan so there will be no up front costs! You will only pay the loan back if and when you earn over £27,000 a year. If you earn over this amount, you will only pay around £15 a month. If you do not earn over this amount you do not pay the loan back. This is perfect for anyone starting out on their new career and helps ease those worries about costs!

Another worry we want to help ease is the coronavirus. We are working hard behind the scenes before opening to ensure the safety of our staff and students regarding coronavirus, so things will be a little different when starting your VTCT level 3 course with us. Anyone entering the academy will be asked to sanitise their hands and also be required to wear a mask. We have PPE for students to wear on their courses and work stations will be required to be cleaned down after use as well. We have markers in place to ensure social distancing and have reduced numbers for our courses. There will also be signs around the academy to help advise the precautions we have in place.

If anyone is wanting any information regarding a place for our VTCT level 3 courses or have any questions or worries about coronavirus please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be more than happy to help!

Bella Marie Training Academy have a highly skilled team of tutors on hand to support you, you'll get immediate access to their experience, skills and industry knowledge once you enrol on any of our courses.
