I don't have a receptionist so during busy times I may not be able to come to the phone. If you leave a message I will always call you back, please make sure you leave your number though.
If you are going to be driving to Brighton Holistics to attend a training course, may we ask that you park in the car park at the top of the hill on Warren Road. The car park is situated on the bend in the road on your left if you are coming from Falmer Road up the hill or on your right if you are coming from Brighton down the hill. The car park is safe, large and free to use. Please note that parking is free.
On arrival press the intercom and I will buzz you into the treatment room.
All courses start at 10.00am and finish around 16.30. Ideally please arrive no earlier than 5-10 minutes before hand the start time.
Wear something comfortable, however jeans are not suitable for giving treatments, and shorts sleeves are a must, long hair needs to be tied up and finger nails need to be short. During an assessment session you will be required to wear therapy dress
Only your lunch, everything you need will be supplied. Refreshments, tea, fruit teas, coffee, water, paper, pens are all supplied. However you will need to supply your own model. Models can be supplied at a cost £20 per day, with prior notice.
Please bring a cold lunch with you (sandwiches, salad etc.); we do not have any food preparation areas for the heating up of food. Please avoid bringing food which had strong aromas as this is not only a training room, but also a treatment room.

We offer two routes for qualifications, VTCT and FHT.
VTCT is one of the largest Government approved Awarding Bodies and FHT is the largest and leading professional association for complementary, beauty and sports therapy.
All FHT qualifications taught at Brighton Holistics follow the National Occupational Standards and Core Curricula in the UK.
The Reason for working with two very high profile organisations is to give you the learner the best options to suite your requirements.
The courses follow the same format but, the final assessments are slightly different.

The difference between ITEC and VTCT
VTCT's assessment model is based on the competence model and continuous assessment, meaning that the centre provides the assessors. This means that the centre has more control over the assessment process and total input into the assessment decisions. An internal verifier quality assures the process and VTCT externally samples 10% of the assessments.
The VTCT model is based on trust and is reliant on the integrity of the centre and their assessors. VTCT and education centres work in partnership to quality assure the course.
ITEC is 100% externally examined and so the centre has no input whatsoever in the assessment decisions which are made based on practical and written examinations at the end of the course, conducted by an ITEC External Examiner.
The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) is the national credit transfer system for education qualification in England , Northern Ireland and Wales . The QCF replaces the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) which closed for accreditations at the end of 2010.
All QCF qualifications are written collaboratively by all awarding bodies and VTCT and ITEC work very closely together, so our qualifications are identical.
The assessment model is the defining factor – i.e. if you want continuous assessment = VTCT or if you want end loaded external examinations = ITEC.
Many centres choose to offer both VTCT and ITEC as they complement each other very well. Please note we do not provide ITEC qualifications.
So really it is down to your preference, it's a bit like the Coke and Pepsi scenario. Some people like coke and some like Pepsi, some people like ITEC and some VTCT.
