Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy

City and Guilds Approved Centre logoLocated in the Wintec R Block building on Collingwood Street, the Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy Centre is in a state of the art purpose-built facility. There are two fully equipped hairdressing salons; Urban Hair One and Urban Hair Two providing realistic work base learning opportunities.  This is achieved through providing learners with experiential hands on learning working with clients to provide hair care, hair services and retail sales. 

Urban Spa which caters for beauty, body and spa training also prides itself in offering learners the opportunity to develop and grow their skills, knowledge and experiences by offering such services as massage techniques, nail technology, makeup artistry and Vichy Spa services to clients.  The Diploma in Beauty, Body and Spa Therapies (Level 5) also provides learners to achieve an international qualification through City and Guilds of London Certificate and Diploma (www.cityandguilds.com). 

All equipment throughout the practical environments is all up to date to ensure learners receive exposure to current trends and industry requirements. Retail products are sourced from professional industry suppliers offering the latest in hair and beauty treatments. 

The Centre also conducts off job training for hairdressing apprentices.

Industry Work Placement forms a key part of the programmes at the Centre for Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy. This provides learners with valuable opportunities to put into practice the learning they have achieved in the classroom environment.
