How We Work
We understand that many people are looking for a career change, or otherwise simply have other commitments with which to fit in their training. This is why we have a flexible programme to meet the needs of our clients; quite simply, we don’t think anywhere else offers the level of flexibility in hairdressing and barbering training.
Learners can attend as frequently and intermittently as they like, up to 5 days a week (Tuesday to Saturday). Changing work patterns? School holidays? No problem, attend as and when you wish. From starting your course, you have 12 months to complete (24 months for the combined course), which is plenty of time.
Learn at your pace, not ours
Everyone is different, and we accommodate people learning at their own pace. Some people need extra time going through theory, some may need to practice on training heads more. We also accommodate Learners with learning disabilities, including Dyslexia, who again may need more time. Learners for whom English isn’t their first language, and those who may struggle with the written or practical side of training, will likely take longer than normal, and should take this into account when starting a course or ascertaining the course duration.
Because of our flexible attendance programme and peoples’ different pace of learning, we don’t provide specific course durations. The time you take to complete a course will be dependant on how you pick things up and how frequently you attend. As an approximate guide, the NVQ hairdressing or barbering course can be completed in approximately 60 full-day lessons, or 100 days for the combined course. Attending an average of 2 days a week, you could complete a barbering course in as little as 6 months – attend more frequently and reduce that time.
For people not in a position to pay for their course in full, we offer a payment plan where you can spread the cost of your course in up to 12 instalments.
All our training resources are available online, so Learners can read and study at home at their leisure, including revision for upcoming tests. At induction you will be given a username and password, access is available for the duration of your course.
