Additional Enrolment Information

AGE RESTRICTION

The London School of Beauty and Make-up is a mature training environment and therefore we cannot accept students under the age of 18 years. Unfortunately, we cannot make exceptions to this policy.


ENROLMENT

We recommend that you find out as much as possible about a course before enrolling. This may be achieved by communicating with our Education and Artistry Enrolments Team by telephone, or by having an informal ‘interview’. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have received satisfactory information, prior to booking your course.


PUNCTUALITY AND ATTENDANCE

It is very important that students maintain good time keeping and attendance whilst training, as would be expected in the industry. Lecturers cannot be held responsible for information missed due to lateness or absence and are unable go back over the subject matter already covered for individual students. Continued lateness will result in disciplinary action and will eventually lead to your expulsion from the course. Short and occasional periods of genuine sickness, are the only acceptable reason for absence, however, prolonged or regular sickness will prevent you from completing your course satisfactorily. Some awarding bodies will not allow you to sit their examination if you have not achieved the correct level of attendance. For further information please liaise directly with the Head of Beauty or Head of Make-up.


DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURES

In order to maintain a professional working environment, The London School of Beauty & Make-up has rules and regulations which must be adhered to at all times by all students. Failure to comply with these policies, will result in disciplinary action and continued disruptive behaviour will eventually lead to expulsion from the school. Details of the disciplinary procedures can be found in our Centre Policy Guidelines, a copy of which is given to each student at the commencement of their course.


COURSE FEES

All course fees must be paid in full no less than 30 days before the course commencement date. We regret that once paid, deposits for the courses cannot be refunded under any circumstances except in the unlikely event that the course is cancelled by the school. If you have to cancel your enrolment for any reason within 30 days prior to the commencement date, you will also lose any other payments made. If you have to leave your course for any reason, you will not be entitled to a full or part refund of fees paid, nor will you be entitled to an alternative course.


DRESS CODE

All students must adhere to the dress code whilst on school premises. Individual religious requirements must be discussed and agreed before application. Uniforms must not be worn outside of the premises. Where appropriate, uniforms are supplied and additional uniforms may be purchased if required. Students will need to provide their own salon shoes where appropriate. Shoes must be plain black, with a low heel and an enclosed toe. Sandals / trainers / sneakers / canvas shoes / plimsolls / coloured logos or branding are not allowed. All jewellery (including facial) with the exception of plain wedding bands and small stud earrings must be removed. We recommend that all valuables are left at home to avoid loss. Mobile phones are not permitted in the classrooms or the student salon and spa.


STUDENT SALON

Performing treatments in a realistic environment is an essential part of the training on all of our beauty courses. Our student lifestyle salon and spa exists to provide you with the opportunity to gain valuable experience and confidence before you enter the industry to start work. The salon is open five days per week with extended opening hours to allow easy access for clients. Each tutor group runs the salon on a fair rota basis, including late nights using staggered shifts. Students are required to perform treatments as needed to meet the clients’ demands and must share the responsibility of encouraging clients to come for treatments to facilitate the assessment process. Time missed from salon sessions must be ‘made up’ to the satisfaction of your teachers and department heads.
