Andrew Collinge Training and Apprenticeships

Andrew Collinge is at the forefront of apprenticeship training with its own purpose built hairdressing training salons in Liverpool and Birkenhead, Wirral.

We educate Apprentices towards an Apprenticeship in Intermediate Hairdressing NVQ Level 2 and Advanced Hairdressing NVQ Level 3.

Our approach to hairdressing training is to build a solid foundation of theoretical understanding mixed with great practical opportunities. Our Apprentices work in the hairdressing training salons whilst gaining their Apprenticeship NVQ Level 2. We also have two Andrew Collinge Graduates salons, where newly qualified hairdressers have the opportunity to build up a clientele in a busy and energetic hairdressing salon whilst studying for their Advanced Apprenticeship hairdressing qualification. We very much see practical hairdressing experience as the key to good vocational learning.

Track record

We have a proven track record of training apprentice hairdressers for over 25 years – since the Youth Training Scheme was established in 1984. The initial apprenticeship training programme was soon recognised as the benchmark for NVQ training, with the company becoming a Government Management Agent for Vocational Training throughout North West England.

In 2007, Andrew Collinge Training achieved its third consecutive Grade 1 from Ofsted. Christine Gilbert, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Education, Children’s Services and Skills, said at the time, “I wholeheartedly congratulate Andrew Collinge Training on their success and hard work in delivering such high standards for their trainees, excellence does not happen by chance. The support and expertise which Andrew Collinge apprentices can count on really helps to inspire and challenge these young people into becoming some of the most talented hairdressers in the country.”
