Beauty Gateway is less than a year in duration and students usually spend 10 days in a beauty clinic (one day a week). Students learn how a clinic is run, how a beauty therapist works, and how to be a successful employee. They assist with basic treatments, and learn the benefits of these (and other) treatments.

There are seven units to achieve
