ADULT HAIRDRESSING & BARBERING NVQ COURSES @ THE LHAA


If you are looking for a change of career or you are looking to re-train to return to work then train at the LHAA to become a qualified hairdresser or barber on one of our adult and private courses.

The London Hairdressing Apprenticeship Academy (LHAA) is a dynamic and innovative vocational training organisation that specialises in high quality hairdressing and barbering training at one of our state of the art hairdressing academies in Camden, Chiswick, Borehamwood and Loughton.

The LHAA offers high quality training in NVQs, Short Courses in Hairdressing and Apprenticeships. Each of our Academies is equipped with a state of the art training hairdressing salon and we offer training that is designed to deliver a real work based experience. Our technical training team are all professional teaching staff from within the industry to ensure that the training reflects current trends and meets the needs of hairdressing salons.
 
 



All the staff at LHAA are friendly and helpful. I completed my NVQ level 2 in Hairdressing  on the adult course which helped me get a job in a salon. I enjoyed training with LHAA so much I have decided to stay on to study for NVQ level 3.
I would definitely recommend LHAA to anyone who is thinking about
training to be a Hairdresser.

Sources for funding that you may wish to consider

 
Advanced Learner Loan (ALL)
+
If you’re planning to study at Level 3 to 6 you may qualify for an Advanced Learner Loan. These loans help you to pay the fees charged by approved colleges and training organisations in England.

WHAT LEARNERS NEED TO KNOW
* You need to pay course fees if you are 19 or over and wish to study for a qualification at Level 3 to 6.
* You may be eligible for a government-backed Advanced Learner Loan to pay for your course fee.
* The amount of money you can borrow depends on your course. The minimum amount you can borrow is £300.
* When applying for an Advanced Learner Loan there is no credit check and household income is not taken into account.
* Loan repayments are linked to what you earn when you’ve finished your course, not how much you borrowed.
* You only need to start paying back your Advanced Learner Loan when you are earning more than £21,000 per year. This works out at £404 a week and £1,750 a month. You pay back 9% of the money you earn over £21,000.
* If you’re employed, loan repayments will be taken directly from your salary through the tax system.
* You can make voluntary repayments at any time.
* Before taking out any loan you should consider all of your options. If you want advice on managing your finances, visit the Money Advice Service at http://www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk for impartial advice.
