Hairdressing

The Level 1 Hairdressing course will give you a basic understanding of the Hair and Beauty industry and we offer this course both at our Paignton Campus and Newton Abbot.

You will attend both Practical and Theory classes completing written assignments and practical assessments for each unit studied to ensure you have gained the required standard to gain your Diploma. You will be required to practise on each other during your practical sessions but will need to bring your own models on assessment days. As part of your course you will have to participate in the Annual Hair and Beauty showcase and it is compulsory to find a 1 day a week work placement in a Salon.

You will also undertake a Maths and English qualification if you have not achieved a grade C or above in your GCSE.
