Private Training

For those that wish to learn to become a hairdresser and gain a qualification without doing an apprenticeship Andrew Collinge Training run a private training course. Our private course appeals to slightly older students that are keen to gain a qualification quickly and learn in a more focused environment.

The cost of the Andrew Collinge Training private course in Level 2 Diploma for Hair Professionals (previously NVQ2)  is £4,000.00 (inc VAT). This sum will cover:

  • Registration and Certification fees
  • Training and Assessment
  • Salon workplace review
  • E-Portfolio licence and use

What you will gain:

  • Hairdressing training  leading to achievement of Level 2 Hairdressing Professional Diploma
  • On successful completion you will be a competent and confident commercial hairdresser.

Benefits of training with Andrew Collinge Training:

  • Proven track record of over 30 years in providing high-quality hairdressing training
  • Our Training Salons are commercial environments where you will be able to practice on real clients
  • Delivery is provided by current commercial stylists who are aware of client needs, hairdressing trends, new techniques and the skills required to maintain success
  • Andrew Collinge own certificates as part of enrichment: Reception & Makeup application
  • Access to your own E-Portfolio account

Weekly commitments:

  • 3 days per week
  • 1 day of classroom led knowledge and skill development
  • 1 day of practical, commercial hairdressing in the Andrew Collinge Training salon
  • 1 day unpaid work experience in a partner salon

Differences between a hairdressing apprenticeship and a private course:

  • Funded by yourself
  • You will not be employed by a salon
  • Delivery will focus on achievement of the Level 2 Hairdressing Diploma only (no wider apprenticeship curriculum requirements)
  • There is no requirement for Maths and English functional skills
  • The planned duration of the course is shorter – typically 12-14 months versus 24 months for an apprenticeship
  • Limited class size – maximum of 8 students
  • You will be able to attend Masterclasses by the Andrew Collinge Creative Team (two per calendar year)

You will be expected to purchase a Training KIT costing £200.00, which will provide all the necessary equipment you will require throughout course duration.
