Collage of Alan d students learning practical and theoretical hairdressing.

Choosing the next step in your career path

It’s blog time again! After the Summer holiday season it’s now time to look at what’s going on in the world of Hairdressing & Barbering. There is all the upheaval created by Government on the funded side of the industry with the new Apprenticeship standards and T levels, which Edward is dealing with as part of his role as Director of Education, but don’t forget that there’s always the Private Education route.

At Alan d we pride ourselves in offering the very best Hairdressing and Barbering training and have done so for over 50 years. Whether a career-changer or a young person looking for an alternative to local college or university, we have so many options for you when choosing the next step in your career path.

Starting with our Foundation courses of only five weeks (20 days) in either Hairdressing or Barbering, or choosing an eight week (40 day) comprehensive Cutting and Colouring course or maybe an eight week (40 day) VTCT Barbering Diploma course; or you could look at enrolling on a VTCT Level 2 Diploma in Hairdressing or Barbering course.

If you really want the ultimate course, we can offer you our Masterclass, a VTCT Level 2 Diploma in both Ladies Hairdressing & Barbering. Whilst these courses are full time we can always reduce them to part- time (3 days per week) in order for you to continue working if you need to earn money whilst you’re training.

Why don’t you get in touch with us so that we can offer you some guidance as to the route into a career in Hairdressing or Barbering? We can start your training for as little as £500 on our new “Pay as you Go” system, allowing you to pay for your training on a daily or weekly basis with no interest.

All our great courses not only give you the best possible training in your new skills but also a formal qualification that will kick-start your new career at the highest level.

Please call us at our Smithfield Academy for more information on 020 7634 9400. Let us talk through your options and don’t forget that our courses start every month throughout the year.
