How do I book a course?

You can go to our Book Online tab to scroll through all our courses! If you want to book onto one of our TGB Courses, you can book online here. If you want to book onto one of our NAF! School courses, you can book that right here.

Where are your courses held?

Our courses are held at our training facility at 19 Elmbank Street, G2 4PB in the City Centre of Glasgow and not the gorgeous city centre NAF! Salon. If you do go to the salon by mistake, we ask you give us a ring and pop over to us!

What's the difference between TGB courses and NAF! School courses?

TGB Courses have been created by TGB Academy and we are Scottish Educators for their courses, like BIAB, E-File and lots of others. NAF! School courses have been created by us, formally accredited by BABTAC and cover courses like Introduction to Manicure & Pedicure, Liquid & Powder Enhancements and the Complete Nail Technician.

Where is the kit I ordered?

All kits ordered for all courses are within NAF! School ready for you to use and have upon arrival to your course. We will not provide kits that contain Gel Polish to students who have not completed their Gel Polish course, just to keep everyone safe!

What do I need to bring?

TGB Courses: If you ordered the full kit, you don't need to bring anything else. If you haven't ordered the full kit, you'll need to bring any of the listed items to your course.

NAF! School Courses: We'll provide your full kit with all you'll need for all of our NAF! School courses so all you need to bring is yourself and a pen and paper for any note-taking.

Will I need to bring a model?

You will need to bring a model on exam days for the following course: Introduction to Liquid & Powder Enhancements (Acrylic) & the last day of the Complete Nail Technician Course.

Do you have payment plans or funding support?

For either branch of courses we offer, we'd recommend looking into the Princes Trust Development Fund if you're 16-24 to look into funding for your training! This isn't specific to NAF! School and can be used for any training in Scotland, but could take off a big chunk of your course cost (up to £500 in a year). https://www.princes-trust.org.uk/help-for-young-people/get-funding-train-learn
