BHB Academy: Formally known as The Hairdressing College, BHB Barber Hair Beauty are now in a new site with a new name and new branding. As a Private Training Provider they have been offering full time study in Hairdressing for over 55 years. This year they have starting offering new provisions in Barbering Level 3 & 4 and Beauty Makeup Artistry Level 3.
With the opportunity to move to a new space BHB Academy were able to started from scratch and design a purpose built space for each of their industries Barbers, Hairdressing and Beauty. Originally the National Bank, the building was pretty cool to keep and so they use the old vault as their resource room, albeit disabled now.
HB Academy mission/focus is on 50% Customer Service and 50% Skill moving forward. Offering gourmet coffee (that the students have all been trained in) and homemade biscuits to customers. They have a wonderful reception/retail space offering special ‘buy one get next product 50% discounts’ which encourages easy selling easy and buying for both. Hairdressers and Barbers need to sell more Retail and therefore need to include this part in their job description.
BHB Academy integrate the necessary NCEA units into practically applied training in the fields of Barbering, Hairdressing and Makeup. So learners can try all three disciplines or just one if they prefer. So all practical time allowed will be learning what a Salon Skills job would be like.
Salons and Barbershops wanting support can send these learners into placements if they are on track with learning, skills, attitude and personal presentation.
Entry criteria is 16-19 year olds. These learners are part of the Youth Guarantee Funding which is a Free Fees course. Travel money will be paid to the student on their attendance
