NVQ Level 2


The Nicky Oliver NVQ Level 3 combination course is an intensive, practical course, designed to cater for students who have gained an NVQ level 2 qualification in the hairdressing profession.

As part of the course, which is delivered over 2 or 3 days each week, your skills will be assessed and should there be any gaps in your level 2 knowledge we will address them.

For the first half of the NVQ Level 3 course you will learn advanced and current commercial hairdressing skills, along with the theory and technical knowledge required to become a level 3 professional stylist. Once completed, you will move onto the next level and learn more advanced techniques.

The classes are small to ensure each individual receives the correct amount to training according to individual needs. You will be continually assessed throughout the course and will be working towards gaining your NVQ Level 3, the Nicky Oliver Academy Diploma in Hairdressing and your Barbering level 2 certificate.

Students must reach the minimum standards required to obtain the above qualification. Your age is immaterial. Your enthusiasm and an interest in the profession, along with our proven teaching methods, which are delivered in a relaxed and friendly environment, will ensure that you progress towards gaining your qualification.
