Omni Academy proudly delivers VTCT qualifications. VTCT stands for the Vocational Training and Charitable Trust, they are an Ofqual approved awarding body.

Ofqual (The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) is the government department which regulates qualifications, examinations and assessments in England.

There are a few different awarding bodies in the UK which offer government approved, Hair and Beauty qualifications within their suite. The most commonly known are VTCT, ITEC (now also part of VTCT) City & Guilds, CIBTAC and CIDESCO. Omni have been delivering VTCT qualifications since we opened in 2008.

VTCT have been in existence for over forty years and has been at the forefront of developing the vocational system of qualifications in the UK. Their qualifications are recognised both nationally and in many countries, internationally and are very highly respected within the industry.

Full Courses or Modular Learning with VTCT

One of the benefits of working with VTCT qualifications is it allows us at Omni Academy the freedom to teach both full qualifications as well as qualifying units individually, which really aids our flexible learning ethos.

Industry Recognised Qualifications

When researching different courses, certificates and qualifications, it’s important to make sure you understand what kind of certification you will be achieving. A professional, government approved qualification is most commonly the type of certification we would recommend at Omni. Qualifications give you a solid foundation to develop on from and provide you with the peace of mind, as you go out into the industry, that your certificate is recognised as a sign of high quality training and professional ability. These certificates are fully insurable with an insurance provider of your choice. These types of qualification certificates can be easily recognised as they will always include the Ofqual logo.

You will find that employers will likely request this level of certification when employing therapists and hairdressers. When taking out your own professional insurance, many insurance providers will want to see evidence of this level of certification too.
