Our courses are all filmed in a simplified, step-by step format in our salon, so it’s like you are right there in the salon while watching from your own home. All assessments are done online and your tutor will mark you and give you direct feedback.

Online learning has proven to be so effective because you can study in bite sized chunks while you start practising instead of cramming too much into a day and getting fatigued. You can go back and re-watch the video lessons as often as you like which means if you are struggling you can go back and re-visit that specific topic as many times as you need.

Our courses come included with a mixture of written, multiple choice and practical assessments. There is nothing unachievable or scary to worry about – we just want to make sure we are properly preparing you for real life salon situations, ensure you have understood all the learning material and your work is to industry standard. You have endless assessment submissions, and we will guide you through and assist with the whole process.

All assessments are conducted online, you can be anywhere in the world!
