    New to NVQ?

    If you're unfamiliar with how hairdressing NVQs / VRQs are structured, the different levels and course titles can seem a little confusing at first.

    image We receive lots of emails from prospective students, such as "Do I need to start at Level 1?", "What is the difference between NVQ and VRQ?" etc. For that reason, we have put together a simple guide explaining how the NVQ system works, and which course would be right for you at any stage in your hairdressing career.

The training is second to none. I knew nothing about hairdressing, but was taught my NVQ Level 2 and Level 3 with the Liverpool Hairdressing Academy Team. I am now a confident, fully qualified hairdresser and working as the Hair Colour Director for a chain of salons. The next course I hope to do is the Advanced Level 4 in Hair Colour Correction.

I thought it was too late to do hairdressing after going to college years ago and not getting a job. Thankfully, I did my NVQ level 3 with you and also my advanced colour correction and Assessors Award. I’m working as a manger of a salon now and I love hairdressing. You’re never too old to learn!
