Say hello to FOUR new online courses!

Express nails, gel polish, perfect lashes and male grooming are now LIVE and can be competed from the comfort of your own home.

Express Nails are a full nail tip applied with acrylic so instead of glue, acrylic is used to adhere the nail to the nail bed, perfect for those who wish to provide a range of nail services.

Gel polish is applied to the nail in thin layers and results in a transparent, glossy finish, they require UV light in order to cure a hard, shiny finish and are applied differently than liquid & powder (acrylic) systems, although gel is itself a form of acrylic.

Our Perfect Lashes course covers three individual lash treatments; lash tinting and the application of both party (cluster) lashes and strip lashes, perfect for those who wish to enhance their beauty career and be able to provide a variety of services.

Male Grooming covers brows, nose and ear waxing. Waxing is the quickest and easiest hair removal method for most men as it ensures a smoother, cleaner finish with less irritation than shaving.

All courses include a full presentation, treatment manual, a step by step guide and treatment training videos. Students are provided with a learning platform and log in details. That’s EIGHT online beauty courses to access to expand you services.

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 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.
