VTCT (ITEC) Level 3 Diploma in Reflexology for the Complementary Therapist - Accredited Professional Course for Beginners

Train with an Award-Winning National Training School - Established in 1998

Are you a beginner and looking to train as a professional Reflexologist?

Do you want to help and care for people and offer a great therapy in reflexology?

Maybe you are looking for a rewarding change of career?

Or are you looking for another income?

Join the thousands of therapists we train each year, in this wonderful and rewarding therapy.

This course and qualification is recognised by the Association of Reflexologists.


This course includes the ITEC Level 3 Certificate in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology for the Complementary Therapist

As well as the practical massage training, all within the price of this course, this course is for complete beginners with no previous massage experience.

Most people offer this course over one year, however, we offer this fast-track option over around 6 months only. This is because a lot of the Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology needed is learned online to save you going to the venues more often.

You will need to attend just 7 days of training only, spread over around 6 months.

You cannot learn this any faster as you are required to do case studies in-between, please avoid those courses offered by other schools that run over less time (less than 5 months) as that will not be up to a level 3 qualification.


This course level, is the only one that you can register with the Association of Reflexologists

Please be aware the shorter Reflexology courses under £800 are often not to this standard, as not all ITEC courses are the same level.

For example, this is the level needed to offer Reflexology within the NHS if you choose to do so, use it professionally, and gain insurance to use it with your clients and in spas, salons and hotels.


You can register with the Association of Reflexologists with this qualification

Please note - ITEC requires this to be taught over around 6 months as you need to do case studies - They do NOT allow us to offer this back-to-back over two weeks.

Please be aware that anywhere that does offer a shorter or quicker course, often it is not a level 3 but only a level 2 which will often not cover everything needed for insurance. We often get students coming to us to retrain after attending with another school that does not run the course for enough hours to cover what is required.

Course FAQs

Click on the question to reveal the answer.

What is the Difference between the ITEC Massage Course and the BTEC Massage Course Qualification?

Many people ask us what is the difference between these two courses, BTEC is level 4 and ITEC level 3 however there is actually very little difference in the course content. Often students have already trained in other ITEC courses and wish to continue with them as they have enjoyed their high standard of training, others appreciate the pricing as it is often more reasonable than BTEC course costs.

This ITEC course is equivalent to an NVQ level 3 and is a professional qualification and will be accepted in all salons, clinics, gyms, corporate companies. You can also set up at home or mobile and gain insurance to work with the general public and charge for your massage as a professional therapist. Whether you train with us or another training company you should look for an ITEC level 3 or above qualification.

Pass Rate

The tutors' pass rate has been 100% for massage; this is down to the small classes of no more than 14 students, giving you the individual attention required.

Why do other schools run this course over 10 - 14 days and charge more?

ITEC ask that the practical training is covered with the correct learning hours and days required and we have 100% pass rate for this.

Please be aware of courses that are 3 days or less this is not a level 3 qualification.

Other schools run this course over a longer period because they ask you to attend at the venue to also learn the Anatomy & Physiology. However to keep the number of days down that you attend and have to travel, the Anatomy & Physiology is learnt online, in the convenience of your own home.

This way you do not have to travel to the venue for the A & P part of the course so often, which keeps travel expenses down and also our overheads down and this is why we can offer this course at such a great discounted price!

Why do thousands of students book with us each year?

We have a long standing excellent reputation, established in 1998.

We look after our students from day one; giving you the personal touch we feel is important. We are here to answer any questions you may have and give you aftercare once you have finished training with us if required.

Pay just a small deposit to secure your place and you can then pay the balance for your massage training in instalments if you wish, to help you budget.

Why book with us?

We are an award winning school, Number One Training School (out of over 80 schools) in the Beauty Industry Survey.

And Voted The Awards of Excellence 'Best Training School' by students and won multiple years in a row! We maintain high standards and are proud of our team of passionate and caring tutors.

When you book with us you have peace of mind, we have a proven track record - established in 1998 and accredited by the top professional bodies.

Do you offer instalment payments?

Yes

You only have to pay a small deposit to secure your place and you can pay the balance for your massage training in instalments, to help you budget.

You can pay the balance straight away if you wish or up to 21 days before your course starts, giving you time to budget if needed.

This means you can book a course on our site in January for example, that is not starting until June and you would not need to pay the balance until May if you wanted to take advantage of the instalment payments.

Once you have paid your deposit, you can pay the balance in full or the final course fee can be paid in 3 affordable instalments if required and the tutor will send you information for this with their booking confirmation.

How are We Able to Offer this Course at Such a Competitive Price?

By completing the anatomy and physiology online (or already having this qualification) and attending the rest of the course (the massage section) at the chosen venue, this keeps the costs down, making this a very popular alternative.

As you are learning the anatomy and physiology in the comfort of your own home, (it has a very high pass rate due to the quality of our content and tutors) you do not have to pay extra to attend at a venue which usually puts the course price up.

Due to the popularity of this course and its affordable price, it is on a first come first served basis with regard to deposits to secure you place.

Please note the cost of the ITEC Massage Exam fee is just £160.00, this includes the A & P exam and all admin fees

What if I Cannot Attend all the Dates Advertised?

You will need to complete all dates to complete the course and take the exam.

If you miss a date due to illness (a doctor's note will be required) you can catch up with the routine via our online video. It will then be required to have a Skype session with the tutor to ensure you stay up to date with the class.

You will be required to catch up on anything that you have missed in your own time so you can still continue the course and take the exam. One course date can only be missed with proof of a doctor’s note and if two course dates are missed, you will need to start and pay for the course again.

Who do we train?

Every year we train thousands of therapists, from Champneys Health Resort, large professional salons like Dior, leading hotels like the Mandarin Oriental Spa at the Knightsbridge 5 star hotel, the Sanctuary, John Lewis Spa, Bobbi Brown, Channel 4 as well as training therapists and complete beginners who come to us at one of our many venues.

How do I pay the balance for my course & do you offer instalment payments?

When you book a course with us, we take the deposit for the course (we do not take the full payment) then once you have booked, your details are sent directly to the tutor and they will contact you with regard to the balance.

We give you this option as many students do not wish to pay in full for their course straight away as they have limited funds, so often this can allow you if you book in advance to only pay the deposit and then pay the balance later, allowing you to budget.

Payment Instalments Available on Courses, to Help you Budget - The tutor will be in touch once you pay your deposit and book to easily arrange this with you.

You will have a choice to pay the balance straight away or it can be paid in instalments.

You will receive a confirmation email from the tutor once you have booked and within this email it will give you the information you require so you can pay the balance directly to your tutor.

If you are a company paying for a student to attend, please email us as we provide a Pro forma invoice if required, we are happy for the tutor to contact you directly to charge the full amount so you do not have to pay in two payments (please note this is only available for company bookings). We can arrange this for you on request.

It’s quick and easy to book with us; you can immediately look forward to your course and a great day learning a new therapy.

We have caring and helpful tutors who will be in touch with you quickly and they are contactable before your course starts, helping you with any questions you may have, making your decision to book with us the right one.

It is important to know you are in safe hands now, on your training day and when your course has finished. You will receive excellent aftercare and help and advice from your tutor when needed.

Do I need to bring a model with me? AND What do I need to bring?

No

You do not need to take a model with you as you will work with another student on the day of training.

If you do not wish to be worked on due to medical reasons, sometimes the tutor can provide one or you can bring someone with you if advised beforehand. The tutor will be happy to discuss this with you.

 

AT OUR COURSES YOU WILL BE WORKING ON EACH OTHER, SO NO MODELS ARE REQUIRED UNLESS YOU PREFER TO BRING ONE AS YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE WORKED ON. JUST LET US KNOW WHEN YOU BOOK AND WE ARE HAPPY TO HELP WITH THIS.

For ITEC courses only over 5 - 6 days, students need to bring a model ONLY on the exam day – no other day – just a model on exam day.

One day courses no models are required.

What should I bring with me

All products that you use on the day whilst learning will be provided on the day of your training for massage, beauty and spiritual courses and are included in the price of your course.

Students should bring pen/pencil, paper and own lunch. Loose/comfortable clothing should be worn. You do not need to take anything with you to a class - all massage & beauty couches, chairs, towels and equipment are all provided.

If you are booking a massage course - because massage will be undertaken, normal standards of cleanliness will be expected including short fingernails.

 

The class runs with 2 or more people booked on and you can book 24 hours before the start date if you wish.
   

The tutors will be able to advise you on the best and most affordable equipment and/or kits to buy when you train with them so you can use these with your clients, or if you wish to buy them before you train you can!

There are no written exams for our one day courses, only a practical assessment by the tutor as you work during the day. The guidance you receive from your tutor will allow you to easily grasp your new skill.

You do not need to wear a therapist tunic or whites unless you wish to, comfortable clothing is fine.
  

We do have a product page on our website which offers discounts on many products that the tutors use, which you can check out any time.

Certificate Information - Is your certification brand specific? And - Do you offer discounts on products needed after the course?

Our One Day Course certification is not brand specific.

You will get a practitioner's certificate and it does NOT say one day course anywhere on it.

It is a professional practitioner’s certificate and the accreditation body logos are also on your certificate, showing who has approved it for insurance purposes.

Trusted, Recognised & Insurable Courses on Government/Councils Approved Accredited list.

If you are choosing a massage or beauty course, our courses are popular because the certification we give you allows a student to work with whichever particular brand they choose to purchase later and use with their clients.

Importantly, we teach effective and safe methods with products that our tutors love to use, but do not insist on the students who attend having to continue with any one given brand afterwards to gain insurance and use what they have learned with us professionally.

This then allows students to make their own choice of brand and also means that they are not tied by any particular brand when it comes to their insurance, so should they ever have a problem and if a claim is made and they have changed brand, they would still be covered, (please check this with your insurance provider) giving you a lot more flexibility.

This also means you are not tied into buying brands from us, which is very restrictive and only makes the school you are buying them from money but does not benefit you. This means the certificate you gain with us gives you the freedom to use whichever brand you wish, the tutors can guide you towards good products but ultimately it is your choice!

In some cases your insurance may be invalid if you train with a branded product detailed on your training certificate and you then change to another brand. However, providing non brand specific training allows us to offer our courses at a lower cost, allowing you to spend what is right for you on the necessary products rather than buying unnecessary and costly equipment.

The tutor will be happy to discuss products, prices and how much you can charge for the therapy on your training day. The tutor will also cover the insurance information for you, we receive a discount with a large insurance company covering our training for those of you new to this field or wanting to change to a new and more affordable cover.

Yes we do offer discounts for products you can use after your course - We have teamed up with some excellent companies to offer really good discounts to our students.

We give you all of this information in your course manuals you receive (included in the price of your course) on the day of your training

THE ITEC COURSES  - THE CERTIFICATES ARE ISSUED BY ITEC

I have noticed the course I want to book is full, can you squeeze another student on?

Sadly No

We are sorry we cannot do this, we have to stick to the advertised numbers due to specialising in small classes and not having room at the venues to take more people.

However what we suggest is to book onto the next date available that you can make and when filling out your details, there is a note box section within the booking form.

You can request here that you can be moved to the earlier date if there are any cancellations so you can be prioritised and contacted if we have anyone drop out.

All dates and availability are updated live as you book, once the deposit has been paid online. Please note the numbers available (which are showing when you visit our site) are correct on a minute to minute basis and will show full as soon as the course date becomes fully booked.

If the venue you selected says there are no dates available, please choose a different venue you can travel to or alternative date option - or you can email us to be put on the waiting list for any cancellations and we are happy to let you know as soon as one becomes free.

WHERE CAN I FIND YOUR COURSE DATES, VENUE OPTIONS AND PRICE FOR THIS COURSE?

For Dates & Venues on offer and also the Course Price - please use the PURPLE LINK BUTTONS which are located on this page to be able to view all dates available.

It will give you a list of venues where we offer this course and also the dates and price.

It is quick and easy to book with us and we only take a small deposit to book you on.

Do I have to take an exam on the day? AND - What are CPD Points?

FOR OUR ONE DAY COURSES

No you do not have to take a written exam on the day, only a practical assessment.

No case studies are required - no written exams, certificate given on the day on completion of a successful practical assessment with your tutor.

All our courses have been awarded CPD points (Continuing Professional Development). There are a certain amount of points required by the various bodies (IFPA, FHT etc) to ensure that members are up to date with various therapies. For example Aromatherapists are required every 3 years to keep their training in massage up to date and will look for CPD courses to be able to do this.

FOR ALL ITEC EXAMS YOUR TUTOR WILL LET YOU KNOW WHEN THESE ARE PLANNED AND GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE PROCESS TO MAKE IT EASY - THEY ARE THERE TO HELP EVERY STEP OF THE WAY

Do you offer Payment Instalments?

Yes - Payment Instalments Available on Courses, to Help you Budget - The tutor will be in touch once you pay your deposit and book to easily arrange this with you.

CAN I DO THIS COURSE ALL ONLINE INSTEAD?

If it is a massage or beauty course the answer is -

No

Avoid being caught out - continue learning your massage and beauty at a venue with a tutor to get the best tuition - be safe and ensure you can use what you learn professionally and still get insurance cover.

We do offer some of our others courses online as well as at our venues - for example some of our spiritual courses are available online but no massage or beauty courses.

It will be mentioned on each course page, if there is an online version available.

 

Why we do NOT offer the hands on practical massage or beauty courses online

 

1. This is because we feel that it is not safe to offer massage or beauty courses online as you require a tutor to be with you in a room to guide you as these are hands-on therapies

2. Also the councils are looking to regulate our industry and the insurance companies are looking to make stricter laws with their policies and cover - which we welcome

3. It will be a lot harder to get many courses verified and covered for insurance soon due to new Government and council laws coming very soon

4. You need a professional assessment on the day of your course in person to make sure you have learned a hands-on therapy safely, this cannot be done online or by zoom and likely not be accepted in the near future

5. We want to make sure any massage or beauty qualification you gain can be used professionally and this needs to be with a tutor at a venue for insurance companies to be able to continue to insure you moving forwards

6. Many large spas, hotels and salons will not take an online training certificate for massage or beauty and will ONLY accept a qualification gained with a tutor face-to-face at a venue for their insurance purposes

7. To be taken seriously in our industry you want to make sure you get the right training with an experienced tutor - you can never replace this with online training as practical courses should be learned safely with a tutor face-to-face who has the right experience and tutor insurance to teach you correctly

8.You learn a lot by receiving a treatment as well as learning how to give a treatment, you cannot experience how it feels or what it should feel like if you learn over zoom or by video - this is why you learn best being in a class with other students

We have two massage courses that have both practical hands on and also online learning:

PLEASE NOTE FOR THE CANCER ONCOLOGY MASSAGE COURSE AND OUR BABY INSTRUCTOR MASSAGE COURSE - THESE TWO COURSES ONLY HAVE ONLINE LEARNING AS WELL AS PRACTICAL HANDS ON LEARNING AS WELL

The practical part of these courses are held at one of our venues and the theory part of the course is learned online.

The online part of the course will be yours to start in your own time with your own tutor to guide you every step of the way.

The Practical hands on Part of the Course:

You will be guided through the practical day by your tutor, in a small group, with lots of individual attention.

I want to attend an advanced massage course - How do I know if my qualification will be accepted?

Please scroll up to the top of the course page and you will see some information tabs you can click on, for further information.

Only some of our massage courses require a previous qualification to attend (many do not) but we can help you with this.

Please scroll up to the top of the course page (under main large photo) and you will see some information tabs you can click on, for further information.

Please look for the 'Accreditation & Entry Requirements' information tab.

Click on this tab, to read what is accepted for an advanced massage course and how to contact us if you need us to check if your qualification is a level 3 that can be accepted or not - as we can help with this.

Thank you

Do you offer in-house training and can you come to us?

Yes

If you are a salon, college, spa or hotel etc and require in-house training, please email us as we can organise a trainer to come to your location with 4 or more students.

sue@gatewayworkshops.co.uk

We have a long history of offering high quality in-house training with experienced tutors who can come to you.

Our courses are fully recognised and accredited, making them fully insurable for the therapist to use professionally.

We train Therapists and we also offer in-house training, we currently train all of Bobbi Brown's UK staff and have done for the past 3 years, Gleneagles 5 star Hotel and Spa Scotland, Make-up Artists at Large Filming Companies and Hollyoaks for Channel 4 and Top Hotels and Spas.

Do I need therapist insurance to attend a class AND How much is insurance if I need it later and who do you recommend

You do NOT need insurance to take our one day courses, but we advise you to act professionally and obtain suitable professional liability insurance (if you intend to use what you have learned on our practitioner courses and use them with the general public.)

Prices for insurance vary but work out at about £60 - £80 a year depending which therapy you train in.

Full details are given to you on the day of your course, however if you are a therapist already and have insurance you will be able to add your training to your existing insurance (we always advise you to check first before booking) or if they do not offer it for what you have learned we can suggest alternatives, so you are covered.

All this information can be found in your course information or you can contact your tutor at any time for further information or help and aftercare when needed.

Gateway highly recommends Westminster for therapist insurance. They are affordable, reliable and many of our students use them on a yearly basis. You will be given full information for Westminster insurance on the day of your training and you can also find their information in the product/shop section of our website.

FOR OUR ITEC COURSES ALL STUDENTS WILL NEED THERAPIST INSURANCE TO TAKE AN ITEC COURSE - WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND WESTIMINSTER INSURANCE AND THEY OFFER A DISCOUNT TO ALL GATEWAY STUDENTS

Your tutor can give you all of this information when you sign up for this course and help you with any questions you may have.

CAN I EASILY LEARN EVERYTHING IN ONE DAY FOR YOUR ONE DAY DIPLOMA COURSES?

Yes

FOR OUR ONE DAY COURSES

Many other companies offer similar courses but have much larger classes therefore it has to be taught over a longer period of time. You may be asked to come back a second day to go over what you have learnt as the tutor does not have time to get around the class due to the large numbers.

Some other schools offer their courses over 2 days, sometimes it is a good way to get you to pay more but very often you will learn the same routines, so what is the difference? They will often have much larger classes so they will have to spread their training over a longer period of time, however we believe in small numbers so you receive one to one tuition.

If you feel one day is not enough training, you are able to come back to repeat the course again free of charge. However, due to small classes this is rare but available if required.

FOR MASSAGE AND BEAUTY COURSES

We also send you a fantastic FREE Anatomy and Physiology manual before you attend our courses; another reason why some training classes elsewhere are over 2 days.

This will be due to the fact the tutor will spend a lot of the time reading about the A & P on the day which we feel you should not pay for, so we give you a free manual so you can to do this in your own time. Relevant anatomy and physiology will of course be covered on the day.

Please however remember this manual is an extra freebie from us, your course training manual is included in the cost of the course and you will receive this as a fully bound hard copy on the day of your training.

 

FOR THE ITEC TRAINING - THIS IS SPREAD OVER 5-6  DAYS OVER SEVERAL MONTHS  (DEPENDING WHICH COURSE YOU SIGN UP FOR) ALLOWING YOU TIME TO DO YOUR CASE STUDIES

Do your prices include VAT?

Yes.

All booking fees (deposits) are inclusive of VAT, Gateway is registered for VAT as a school and booking/promotional agent.

The 'course fee’ (balance) payable to the tutors is VAT exempt as VAT is not applicable to Education.

The price on the website is inclusive of everything, no hidden charges.

Receive these Gifts when you Train with us - Giving you added extras worth over £50!

FREE TO ALL OUR STUDENTS WHEN YOU ATTEND:

    Anatomy and Physiology e-manual
  
    Access to our complimentary 'Hands Free' Massage Video Download too!
    Access to course reference videos helps you remember routine taught
    Discounts off therapist insurance and products

Can I repeat the course for free if I need to?

FOR OUR ONE DAY COURSES - Yes

Our Promise to you - Yes you can repeat the course free of charge if needed.

Our tutors are so confident that one day is adequate for our one day Diploma courses, due to the small numbers they teach, if they or you feel you need to come back to repeat the course you can do this free of charge.

If you feel one day is not enough training, you are able to come back to repeat the course again free within 6 months when spaces are available with the same tutor.

However, due to small classes and the 1-1 attention you receive this is rare but for your peace of mind available if required.

THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO OUR ITEC TRAINING COURSES

Are your course tutors fully qualified? How do I contact my tutor

Yes.

All our tutors hold teaching qualifications and are experts in their fields, they all have professional qualifications in all the subject areas that they teach with years of experience so you know you will receive the best training available.

Excellent tuition on the day with expert tutors, but also fantastic aftercare when needed and help with any questions, which makes us different and unique to many other companies offering courses; not only will you get great tutors whilst you learn - but also great aftercare too - many other companies do not offer this and leave you to your own devices.

Your tutor's contact details can be found in your website confirmation email you were sent when you booked with us, there is a link that takes you to your tutor's information with their email and phone contact details.

The tutor will also confirm your booking by email, giving you all the information you need for them and the full details for the venue and directions and final balance payment information.

What if a course is full - do you have a waiting list option?

All dates and availability are updated live as you book, once the deposit has been paid online, a place is allocated.

Please note the numbers available (which are showing when you visit our site on the date and venue pages) are correct on a minute to minute basis and will show full as soon as the course date becomes fully booked.

Courses run with two or more people booked on and some can get booked very quickly so early booking is advised so you do not miss out on the date you can make.

If a date is full, most students book onto the next date available that they can make and when filling out your details, there is a note box section within the booking form and you can request here that you can be moved to the earlier date if there are any cancellations so you can be prioritised and contacted if we have anyone drop out.

If the venue you selected says there are no dates available please choose a different venue you can travel to or if no other venues have a date suitable, you can email us to be put on the waiting list for any cancellations and we are happy to let you know as soon as one becomes free.

What is included in the course fee, for your ONE DAY courses?

For our one day courses, practical tuition training materials - if you choose a massage or a beauty course, towels, blankets, creams/oils, massage tables/chairs are all provided on the day so you do not have to take anything with you.

Also included is a fully comprehensive award-winning manual.

The booking fee (your deposit) is inclusive of VAT and no VAT to pay, on the balance of the course fee.
