Course Duration

It is our mission to ensure that when Learners complete their course they have have not only competently acquired the required standards, they are what we call ‘Salon Ready’ – confident and experienced to work in a working salon or barbers.  Everybody learns at a different pace, which we accommodate.  Because of this, we don’t have a specific durations for our courses – the time you will take depends on the pace at which you learn, and how frequently you attend.  As a guide, many people could complete this Hairdressing course in approximately 70 full-day lessons – remember, you can attend up to 5 days a week (Tuesday to Saturday), including Thursday evenings. This flexibility allows you to achieve your qualification at your pace and in your timescale, like a fast track course but with no additional fees.  Our course fees allow Learners to attend and train as they like for 18 months until they qualify.  More more information, see our page How We Work.
