Course Overview

The VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology (QCF) is a preparation for work qualification that has been designed to prepare you for a career as a reflexologist.

You will also develop your understanding and practical skills to competently provide
reflexology services.

You may also choose to complete an additional unit which will develop your knowledge and understanding of healthy eating and wellbeing for the complementary therapy client. This is a practitioner level qualification.

The course will consist of practical and theory lectures and demonstrations, workshops and discussions and you will learn about business practice, principles and practice for complementary therapies, anatomy and physiology and reflexology.

This is an assessment based programme for both the practical and theory elements of the course. You will assemble a portfolio of evidence from your case studies and assignments and you will also be assessed by practical demonstration. There is also a multiple choice question paper.

Entry Requirements

You will need to have the Level 3 Diploma in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology (QCF). If you have not already have the Level 3 Certificate in Anatomy and Physiology, this can be studied alongside the Level 3 in Reflexology.

There are no other prerequisites other than a keen interest in the subject, motivation and communication skills.

All students interested in this course should contact the course tutor prior to enrolment.
