Hair and Beauty

Our Hair & Beauty training provides the platform for a career employed in a salon or even self-employed, with your own client-base.

Each of our centres has an industry-standard purpose-built training salon to help learners develop their knowledge and skills, as well as their confidence, before going on a placement with one of the local professional salons with whom we work.

The Study Programme training starts at Level 1 in the first year, progressing to levels 2 and 3 thereafter. These higher qualifications can either still be within the Study Programme or, more likely, within an employed Apprenticeship framework.

Level 1
This is an introduction to the industry, based on assisting technical staff in the salon. You’ll work toward a Diploma in an Introduction to the Hair & Beauty Sector awarded by VTCT, which is delivered through a mixture of salon and classroom based learning, supplemented by a work placement.

Unlike some colleges that charge students for hairdressing kit, we provide all kit necessary to achieve this qualification FREE OF CHARGE and also make no charges for examination entry fees.

Level 2
Level 2 is junior level and covers basic skills and knowledge, working towards an NVQ Diploma in Hairdressing awarded by VTCT. It is the minimum standard required to work effectively in a salon.

Level 3
Level 3 is the target qualification for anyone wanting to be a truly proficient professional in their chosen field. It expands upon the basic skills of Level 2 and is aimed at those wishing to progress towards the top level of their profession. It is delivered within an employed Apprenticeship framework.
