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 a Level 2 Diploma for Hair Professionals (formerly NVQ2) and an Advanced Apprenticeship Level 3 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 Diploma for Hair Professionals. 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.
