This programme also offers opportunities to work backstage at local and national events like the World of Wearable Arts so you can experience the breadth of work available to skilled stylists.

You will also continue to develop your practical skills in the on campus salons to gain an understanding of what it is like to work in a salon with clients.

On completion of the programme, you are ready to work as an apprentice hairdresser, where you can pathway to the Professional Stylist qualification.

COVID-19 vaccine

The Government COVID-19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021(external link) has been extended to include high-risk workers in the hospitality and service industries such as hair, beauty and fitness sector.

This has implications for our learners and staff who have close contact, customer facing, roles in the teaching and learning environment, and learner work placements.

The effect of this is that vaccination will soon be mandatory.

With the introduction of the Order, NMIT cannot secure placements for learners who are not vaccinated. If your vaccination status cannot be confirmed it is likely you will not be able to complete your qualification.
