What is it like to study this course and how will I be assessed?
Training as a hairdresser is a rewarding experience and a great career. You need to be highly motivated and focussed in gaining your qualification in Hairdressing.
This is a demanding course which will require you to have a range of models for practise and progression towards assessment (fee payable by clients/customers). You will need good communication skills, an interest in fashion & style and a passion for hairdressing.
This is a VRQ Level 2 hairdressing course – advanced skills are developed in the Level 3 Certificate in Hairdressing course whilst you continue to develop your skills within the industry. We do strongly advise you undertake a work experience placement within a salon alongside your studies.
Teaching includes a range of demonstrations, practical sessions (realistic work environment) and practise workshops. The basis of the assessment system is to provide evidence that shows you can work to a performance standard. Assessments for Level 2 are carried out by an assessor observing your practical work, oral questioning, and projects and on-line tests. You will be given guidance by your tutor on the various types of evidence that can be used.
*In addition to this cost there will be a £150 resource fee, payable at enrolment.
Some of the units you will cover on this course include:-
- Client Consultation
- Shampoo & Conditioning
- Cutting Women’s and Men’s Hair
- Styling & Dressing
