The Academies offer a flexible curriculum for government funded students, including hands-on creative workshops and demonstrations in our modern, air-conditioned environment. Whether your apprentice is new to the hairdressing world or a qualified hairdresser or barber working towards NVQ Level 3, Alan d Hairdressing Education offers all levels of tuition.
We have a strong reputation for work-based-learning and have been delivering Government-funded apprenticeship training for over 20 years. Every week your Level 2 apprentice attends the Academy their progress will be reviewed by one of our team, who is not part of the teaching staff. They will be happy to help them with any problems that may affect their learning.
Whether your apprentice is training to be a ladies hairdresser or barber, the system is the same. They will spend one full week at the Academy for each month of their course. Functional skills are fully embedded within the course.
Whether Ladies Hairdressing or Barbering your apprentice will be cutting hair on their second day. The first week of the induction class is run jointly to ensure the Barber trainees receive the same basic cutting skills as the Ladies Hairdressers before they move onto specific Barbering techniqes.
