What is special about this course?
Learn while you work with Modern Apprenticeships (MAs) and Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs). Modern apprenticeships in Scotland are available for people who are aged over 16 and in employment. With on-the-job training and regular meetings in the workplace you can gain a recognised qualification without studying full-time. Funding for MAs can be gained from Skills Development Scotland.

This 18 month programme covers a range of higher level skills in hairdressing, including study of: advanced colouring techniques; colour correction; styling and dressing long hair; advanced cutting and planning and implementing promotional activities.
