As well as working in our professional on-site salon, you will get lots of practical experiences outside the course, such as working on community activities and showcasing your skills at catwalk events and End of Year Fashion shows, with previous events taking place at Dover Castle.

Skills Competitions

Throughout your course, you will get the chance to take part in competitions, such as the KFE4Skills Awards.

The Salon

All learning and training takes place in our industry-standard salon, where you can work with professional equipment on real-life clients and develop skills in salon management.

This will give you the experience you need to make it in the industry, and put you above the competition.

Our salon is open for appointments throughout the academic year and uses vegan and natural products.
