Why choose us:
‘Training Hairdressers is our Business!’ That’s what we do!
We are the only provider to offer a Level 2 (NCEA VP), Level 3 & Level 4 hairdressing programmes in the lower half of the North Island. Our business model is 'Passion (Fashion) & Purpose (Relevance) before Skill (Basic Skill)" this means we teach fashion work in blow waving, setting & Long Hair Ups well before the basic iniform layer sets & blow waves. This primarily focuses on capturing the students enthusiasum, excitement and keeps them focused on attendance & application to learning. We offer over and above the core course material - In House Hairdressing Competitions, Regional & National Hairdressing Competitions, several oportunities to be apart of photographic shoots and entry to Regional & National events. Our Head Tutor Salina runs our Fashion and Competition direction and guides all students through the whole experience. We want you to experience everything the Hairdressing industry offers and we are prepared to support you though the entire journey it takes. We pour all our energy, passion and resources into the students for quality hairdressing, life skills and knowledge. We provide extra tuition to students with learning difficulties, we have embedded Literacy & Numeracy in all our progammes and we will provide an Individual Learning Plan for you to success in our programme. Our smaller classes enable us to work closely with students offering a very supportive network to each other throughout the stages of the course. All students with good attendance and attitude will be successful and marketable to enter the industry at any level of exit.
As the director I take it upon myself and use my contacts within the industry to source out part time jobs within the Manawatu, and further a field if necessary. You can continue on to our Level 4 programme or take up an apprenticeship within the salon environment. Both pathways get the same result. We have an 70% job success for students overall (90% from our Level 4 programme) that completed the programme to date. Hard working students with excellent attendance, attitude and skill will in fact get the best jobs. This is guaranteed!!! Our recent success in the local & national Hairdressing Competitions has highlighted the interest Salon Owners have on our students to employ the very best. I have employers ring me daily trying to find the right person for them. It’s all about attitude!
