Prepare for further training or employment in hairdressing or beauty therapy.
Designed to give you real insight into the beauty and hair industries, this course provides an introduction to the salon environment and is an ideal launch pad for further training. It covers industry practice, industry safety, image, client and salon support, communication skills and preparation for employment.
Throughout the programme you'll have access to separate training salons for hairdressing and beauty therapy.
This programme is delivered two days per week (Thursdays & Fridays).
This is a Dual Enrolment course. To enrol you must be in Year 11-13 at secondary school and/ or hold a visa, which allows you to attend a New Zealand secondary school. Some programmes also require a minimum age of 16. Please enquire.
Dual Enrolment means, you are enrolled in both your secondary school and at Ara at the same time. Usually this means spending 1-2 days per week at Ara in a subject of your choice for the duration of the school year.
Ara offers two different types of credits.
- Ara credits (see above) are tertiary study credits. Ara credits can be used to enter further study at tertiary level (Level 4+) in New Zealand.
- NZQF credits (outlined below) can be used to contributing towards NCEA Level 1-3.
Please note the number of Ara & NZQF credits are unrelated and may differ from each other.
To enrol you must be in Year 11, 12 or 13 at secondary school. You must also be a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident, or hold a visa which allows you to be enrolled in a New Zealand secondary school.
Some programmes require a minimum age of 16. Please enquire.
