What are the payment options?
We offer fee-paying courses, we cannot provide funded options, eg apprenticeships or other government programmes
You can pay the course fee in full (and receive an extra WAHL workshop), or pay just £300 to start then £40 each time you attend until the balance is paid.
What are the course durations?
Firstly, everyone learns at a different pace, which we accommodate, therefore our courses are not a fixed number of days.
Secondly, because we have flexible attendance and you can attend as you wish (up to 5 days a week), the more frequently you attend the sooner you will qualify.
As a guide, our courses take the following approximate numbers of full-days attendance:
Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Hairdressing: 60
Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Barbering: 50
Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Hairdressing + Barbering Units: 90
Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Hairdressing: 60
Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Barbering: 55
These are approximate and will vary from one person to another, we do not provide completion timescale guarantees
The Level 2/3 Hairdressing & Barbering courses must be completed within 12 months from start, although options are available to continue beyond that period
