Hairdressing is an ever popular profession and many courses have existed for some time to study the subject. The logical next step up is a formal qualification which, of course being an NVQ, combines on-the-job-training with theoretical and further practical training and practice. The NVQ Hairdressing is a recognized National standard.
An NVQ Hairdressing is achieved through assessment, training and competence in your hairdressing career goals. NVQ Hairdressing standards are applied based on these different levels of achievement. You must be able to show your ability to pass these as your training levels require. National Occupational Standards are established and give absolute definitions for the competency expected at each level. You can acquire your training and achievement of your NVQ by taking an internship, or a paid position that allows you to acquire the required qualification levels. Many salons will allow you to train for your NVQ’s at a low wage and then move up in the salon once you pass the qualification levels.
