Hairdressing Level 3 at Achievement Training Ltd

Course description

The hairdressing, beauty and personal grooming industry continue to grow and is thought to worth approximately £5.25 billion per year. It has been estimated that approximately 20% of UK salons have job vacancies and lack of skills for treatments that we offer such as nail art, microdermabrasion, ear candling, self tanning, make-up services, Indian head massage, eyelash perming and non surgical face lifting. Courses start at various times throughout the year and evening courses are also subject to demand. Assistance towards funding of tuition fees is available subject due to status although all learners are required to pay for kit and consumables. Further details are available at induction.

The Beauty Department is continually developing within Achievement Training, having added both Hairdressing and Nail Services in the past couple of years. The facilities include 3 training salons which provide 21 work stations, 1 nail bar with 6 work stations, a Hair Salon with 8 Stations and 2 theory rooms. In addition to this, we have a fully equipped reception area, dispensary and stock room. All salons and the nail bar are professionally equipped to facilitate a realistic working environment for learners. The past couple of months have also seen the Beauty Department have great success in gaining Apprenticeship positions for their learners.
