Andrew Collinge Training and Apprenticeships

Andrew Collinge is at the forefront of apprenticeship training with its own purpose built hairdressing training salon in Liverpool.

We educate Apprentices towards a Level 2 Hair Professional Diploma (formerly NVQ2) and a Level 3 Advanced & Creative Hair Professional Diploma (formerly NVQ3).

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 Level 2 Hair Professional Diploma. We also an Andrew Collinge Graduates salon, where newly qualified hairdressers have the opportunity to build up a clientele in a busy and energetic hairdressing salon whilst studying for their Level 3 Advanced & Creative Hair Professional Diploma. We very much see practical hairdressing experience as the key to good vocational learning.
