Diploma in Hairdressing

ITEC Diploma in Hairdressing – Level 3 – QQI Level 5

Our Tutors are all ITEC approved to deliver the courses, as is our Academy – with a fully equipped hair salon, and plenty of help and support, this is an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed. ITEC has been awarding high quality and respected industry qualifications since 1947. It is now one of the world’s leading and most successful awarding bodies specialising in the Hairdressing sectors. All ITEC qualifications are aligned to the National Qualifications Framework Ireland (NQAI).

Here at The Deep End Training Academy we believe that hands on experience is invaluable in this industry, especially during the training period. We run the course in The Academy on Mondays and Tuesdays, and students will be required to work under supervision in the Salon on a Friday or Saturday on a rota basis as part of their course. This will allow you to get the valuable work experience you will need to gain confidence when starting work.
