Hairdressing & Barbering

Our hairdressing courses offer a dynamic learning experience, focusing on honing skills from basic level to advanced hairdressing. Engage in hands-on workshops and witness inspiring demonstrations to elevate your experience in the art of hairdressing and barbering.

We offer various hairdressing courses, from SCQF level 4 – 7 (HNC) and barbering from SVQ Level 2 -3 to prepare you for employment within this industry.

We have excellent links with local employers and related organisations, which means students learn directly from specialists in the industry.

Previous hairdressing students have benefited from sessions with Salon Services, Wella, Bridge 2 Business, Business Gateway and demonstrations and training from the Great Barber Bash.

Not all learning takes place within a classroom or college setting- we take our students on visits, with previous students visiting local hairdressing businesses and having the opportunity to compete UK-wide in the Association of Hairdressers & Therapists (AHT) competitions.

Many hairdressing students also gain direct work experience through work placements, with previous students having completed work placements in prestigious salons within the area and, in many cases, leading to employment opportunities.
