Thinking about training in hairdressing?

Where do you start? The course, insurance, qualification, products, marketing or clients. Take a look at some key points on my latest blog post.

Accreditation for Hairdressing Training;

Is the course accredited? – all training courses should be accredited with a accreditation company. Our accreditation company is The Guild for Diploma courses and VTCT for NVQ courses.  These company’s ensure the tutor is qualified, course covers the correct topics, ensure insurance is in place and enable you to gain insurance with the accreditation provider once you are qualified. Other companies include ABT, Professional Beauty and BABTAC to name a few.

Hairdressing training course types; what is best for you?

Accredited vs Regulated

Accredited courses are those backed up by a insurance company, insuring you once you have passed the course based on the academy’s requirements.

Regulated courses are those backed by the government and regulatory authorities.

I’ve taken part on a few webinars around the subject of accreditation and regulated courses. Watch them over on our YouTube channel.

‘Completed the NVQ level 2 hairdressing, fitting in around school runs and holidays! Fantastic training academy and very accommodating. Totally worth every penny.
