Medusa Training - Qualifications and Courses





School and Pre Apprenticeship programmes

Introduction to the qualification

Level 1 - is a hairdressing and barbering qualification that is designed to see if learners can work with others and follow instructions. This level is basic but can give the learner a fantastic insight into what life as a hairdresser is like. The learners attend Medusa Training every week over approx. 7 months and also gain work experience in the salon at the same time. The learner will be with our main staff to see how they function on a day-to-day basis helping in the salon as well as in the academy. The learners that are interested and complete their level 1 VTCT certificate will be given the opportunity to move onto the next level (Level 2 Basic).

Level 2 Basic - this is the next level for those who have demonstrated an interest in the hairdressing industry, and is a bit more advanced. At this level learners will be given the opportunity to apply certain colours and do basic cuts. Some learners may be able to carry units over to the N/SVQ Level 2 qualification. Continuation onto employment after this course (through partner salons that Medusa Training work with) is possible, cutting down time spent on a full Level 2 S/NVQ.
