Do you want to teach full hairdressing courses in a college setting or just to teach short courses (e.g. bridal styling/extensions) in the salon?

Assuming you hold a minimum Level 3 in Hairdressing, generally, the current pathways are:

  • Level 3 Award in Education and Training – short introductory course (approx 10 weeks, part-time) for those just starting out in teaching or those thinking about working in further education. It covers understanding teaching roles, and different learning and assessment methods.
  • Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training – suitable for those already teaching in a paid or voluntary post with access to a minimum of 30 hours’ teaching practice. It lasts between six and nine months and includes units on lesson planning, teaching and assessment methods, and teaching resources.
  • Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training – lasts between one and two years and is suitable for teachers who have access to a minimum of 100 hours’ teaching practice. It includes units on developing teaching and assessment skills, theories and models of learning, and professional practice.
Start by looking at the courses available in your local FE college(s).
