Hairdressing and Barbering Course – 1 Year ITEC Level 2 Diploma: Overview
This One Year ITEC Level 2 Hairdressing and Barbering Course has been designed as a continuation to complement the hair cutting and styling skills previously learnt on the Two Year BTEC or Nine Month ITEC Professional Make-up and Hair courses. Created in line with industry requirements and following the ITEC Level 2 diploma in hairdressing and barbering, the course will teach students the necessary practical and theoretical skills to work as a hair stylist within the media and fashion industries, freelance hairdressing and salon environments. The course is taught by Toni and Guy trained educators, qualified assessors and experienced stylists, who will nurture, guide and teach students the latest in cutting, styling and colouring techniques. Students are assessed internally and externally and will be required to complete assignments and practical portfolio evidence throughout the course.
Brushstroke has been at the forefront of supplying trained hair and make-up artists to the creative media industry for over 27 years. Although we have an extremely high success rate, work placements can never be guaranteed due to the freelance nature of our industry. However, our students will be held on our agency books as we are regularly called upon by production companies and make-up designers for artists with various levels of experience.
On completion of the course students will be issued with the ITEC Level 2 diploma in Hairdressing and Barbering and the Brushstroke certificate of attendance and subjects covered.

The ITEC Hair course is structured in the following way
This consists of demonstrations and moves swiftly into hands-on practical training, continuing throughout the course with our lecturers offering guidance, enabling the student to acquire the skills needed in the professional make-up and hair industry. Great emphasis is put on speed and accuracy to high definition standard. Internal certification is by Brushstroke, which the student only gains once they have completed every unit to the satisfaction of the course tutor.
The ITEC external qualification runs alongside your Brushstroke course as the ITEC requirements are met within the syllabus of the One Year Course. The ITEC Level 2 diploma is a unit based qualification, where students are assessed internally and externally on their practical skills and coursework/portfolios. It is a way of ensuring that the units covered have been completed to a standard and also allows the student to benefit by acquiring a recognised certificate in professional hairdressing.
Induction for Brushstroke courses is effectively reversed, whereby the prospective student/parent/ guardian ensure suitability for a course along with our decision. Once you have discussed your requirements with a senior member of staff, preferably at one of our informal interviews or in detail over the telephone we will then write to you confirming our acceptance of you on your chosen course.
All ages attend our courses and are suitable for school leavers aged 16+ to continue their education and work towards either a BTEC or ITEC Qualification. We look closely at the suitability of younger students ensuring that they are ready to train with us. There is no specific qualification requirement; although certain qualifications/ work experience can be beneficial to students and the merits of these are assessed at the induction stage.
