International Qualifications will be taught simultaneously in a one year programme at Stellenbosch Hair Academy. This allows students to enter the employment market at the earliest moment, giving them the opportunity to accelerate their skills-performance in the work environment.
Students wanting to achieve full Qualification are required to work under a Learnership Contract at a salon of their choice. Although it is the student’s responsibility, Stellenbosch Hair Academy will assist the student in finding a suitable salon. The duration of the curriculum / course will depend on the student’s ability and experience. After completing the minimum hours on the Learnership contract, students will be allowed to do the Trade Test.
Successful students will achieve their International Qualifications (ITEC L2 & 3) already at the end of their academic period.
Students opting for a Part Time Course will be completing National and International Qualifications simultaneously over a three year period at Stellenbosch Hair Academy. Students might be able to complete it in a shorter period of time, depending on the student’s ability and experience.
Part Time students are required to work full time in a salon and attend Stellenbosch Hair Academy once a week. This allows the student to complete the hours required. Should a student not have a salon before they start with the course, they will have a limited period to secure one. Although it is the student’s responsibility, Stellenbosch Hair Academy will assist the student in finding a suitable salon.
To complete the course successfully, students will be required to work on live models (clients).
Students are responsible to provide their own models for all practical training and assessments; however the Academy is in close proximity of the University and other businesses, ensuring students have access to numerous models.
