“ Further and higher education college offering courses to degree level and professional qualifications. „
I went to Bromley College about a year ago. When I was there I study NVQ level 1 and NVQ level 2 in hairdressing.
NVQ Level 1 hairdressing:
When I did my level one I was doing it full time. I started my course in september and I finished it by March. If you are under 19 the course is free to do. I went to college 3 days out of 7 but one a friday i worked in a salon because you need to have a work placement.
When you do NVQ level 1 you will shampoo clients hair, do some health and safety, helping the Level 2 and asking the phone to make book in clients. You will have to buy your kit which is about £150. When I finished my course i started to do my level 2 so that it would not take me long to do it. A NVQ level 1 course will take about 1 year to do.
NVQ Level 2 hairdressing:
NVQ level 2 should take you about 2 years to do. You will need to have a work placement for it. If you did Not want to do NVQ level 1 you will need to have four GCSEs to A-D. You will have to pay for the course Course Materials which is £110.00. If you did not do your NVQ level 1 you will have to pay £174.50 for your hairdressing kit but if you did you level 1 you will have to pay £72.00. You will also have to wear a Uniform which cost £62.27 .

When I did My level 2 it took me about 1 and a half years to do. If you would like to you can also do NVQ level 3 hairdressing. If you wanted to do that you will need to work at a salon for a year then you can go back to college and do the level 3.
Bromley College has a lot a students there and I really like going there to do my course. They also have some food places where you can go and buy somethink to eat.
They do a lot of course there like
