The Government has changed the education law again and from this summer young people must continue in education or training until the end of the academic year in which they reach their 18th birthday.


For young people who don’t want to continue full-time study in school, college or with a training provider until they are 18 years of age, but want to leave school at 16 and would love to work in the hairdressing industry, then the Nicky Oliver Hair Academy is for you!


We run NVQ Level 2 & 3 courses in our award-winning Academy where you will receive a NVQ level 2 after just 4 months of training and a NVQ Level 3 after only 8 months and you will be complying with the Government’s training rules!


A career in Hairdressing is extremely rewarding and you will learn a huge variety of skills, not only about how to cut, colour and style hair, but also skills which will turn you in to a confident person, capable of communicating with people from all walks of life, working as part of a team and at the end of the training have the skills to become a Stylist and eventually open your own hairdressing business.


Your creative skills will grow and so will you as a person, and you will have achieved NVQ qualifications without spending two years in college.
