VTCT Level 2 NVQ Diploma In Hairdressing

The VTCT Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Hairdressing is most suitable for learners seeking to work in, and develop their skills in a commercial setting, and can only be delivered by centres that have, or have access to a 'real' hairdressing salon, and not a realistic working environment.

The purpose of this qualification is to provide you with the knowledge, skills and understanding to be a junior hairdresser/stylist. This qualification is based on the Level 2 Hairdressing National Occupational Standards (NOS) and is recognised by the UK’s leading professional hairdressing associations (The Hair Council and National Hairdressing Federation) as being fit for purpose to prepare you for a career as a junior hairdresser/stylist.


Whilst the primary purpose of this qualification is to prepare learners for employment, learners may choose to develop their knowledge and skills further by completing an advanced apprenticeship or Level 3 qualification in hairdressing, these include:

  • VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Women's Hairdressing

  • VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Hairdressing Studies

  • VTCT NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Hairdressing
