Student Membership & Insurance

Why do I need insurance as a student?

Whilst carrying out case studies or any other treatments that are performed outside of your college can leave you legally liable for any loss or damage to other peoples' property, injury, harm or financial loss alleged to have been caused. The repercussions of this could be serious and harm your professional reputation.

Before you are qualified you MUST:

  • Only practice treatments for case study purposes
  • Carry out the treatment as you have been taught by your college/training provider
  • Charge below market rate for treatments, to cover the cost of your treatment products/consumables only
  • Make sure your client is aware you are still training (ask them to sign a declaration stating that you have informed them of this)

Following these steps and making sure you review each case study regularly with your teacher, will help to ensure your student insurance cover is valid.

What happens when I am qualified in level 2? 

Your student membership will continue to cover you for your level 3 provided you remain a student only. If you wish to work at the same time, in those modalities you have qualified, your insurance will need to be upgraded (with our special student upgrade).This will then cover you for the treatments that you are now qualified to do and will also cover any case studies you will be required to perform whilst studying for level 3.

The treatments that will be covered are:

  • Basic manicure and pedicure treatments
  • Eye treatments
  • Tanning treatments
  • Basic facials
  • Basic Waxing

Now you are qualified and upgraded your insurance, you can charge market rate for the above treatments but any Level 3 case studies, as above, will need to cover the cost of your treatment products/consumables only.
