ACADEMY

The Partners Hair Design Training Academy which opened in January 2012 is the realization of a longstanding dream. This Training Academy gives us the opportunity to enhance our current training offering both to staff as well as to any learner who wishes to obtain a full Ladies Hairdressing NQF 2,3,4 qualification. 

We have replicated the salon model in such a way that our learners will be better prepared for integration into the real salon world. 
 
They will work with products from the larger product houses, and will be trained in the use of the in-salon software that is commonly used by large companies in the hairdressing industry. 

NQF 2 qualification 
NQF 3 qualification 
NQF 4 qualification 

TESTIMONIAL

One of my highlights as a student at Partners Hair Design Training Academy, was being taught by the most hardworking, dedicated and inspirational teachers, Marion Counsell and Lewis Thomas. We learned everything from life skills, handling clients and structures of hair. Once a week we were also sent to the salons to cover the practical side, which gave us invaluable hands on experience and confidence.​- GAYNOR PHILANDER
