Hairdressing is a creative and rewarding career, and our training salon is a lively, exciting and stimulating place to learn.
Our staff share their professional insight with the students and teach them what it takes to succeed in the world of professional hairdressing. Students will learn the latest techniques and gain industry knowledge alongside their learning by attending guest talks and demonstrations with internationally recognised haircare companies.
Students work in The Canterbury Spa, our own commercial training salon, which is open the public. Students use the latest industry-standard products from the likes of Goldwell and Wella.

I was proud to have undergone things I never thought I would be able to when we spent a week with the Royal Marines.
I faced many challenges on work experience but was able to build relationships with the patients and understand their needs.
Working with The Marlowe Theatre has been a great experience. The atmosphere was amazing and everyone enjoyed themselves.
