ag salons training academy

The Training Academy was established in April 2005 and has successfully trained hundreds of very successful hairdressers and barbers in the Herefordshire area. Our training includes time in our salons, where our students appreciate what working in a busy, commercial salon is really like.

As a City and Guilds approved Training Centre we offer:


  • Level 2 Technical Certificate in Hairdressing and Barbering
  • Level 2 Hairdressing and Barbering NVQ
  • *NEW* Level 2 Diploma for Hair Professionals - Apprenticeship

All level 2 qualifications run over two academic years.


  • Level 3 Advanced Technical Diploma in Hairdressing

Level 3 Advanced Technical Diplomas is one year courses. Level 3 is ideal if you’ve worked in hairdressing or barbering for some time and want to develop your skills in a more technical way.


We have an established training team of five highly skilled lecturers, many who have been with us since our conception. They are all highly experienced and knowledgeable of all the hairdressing elements. Most of them work in our salons as award winning stylists. The teams’ aim is to ensure that every student reaches their full potential.


Most of our trainees under the age of 18 are fully funded by the Government. We do have some students who self fund. For more information please drop Naomi an email [email protected]
