NHTA recently launched a major marketing campaign aimed at recruiting young and not so young learners on to their traditional hairdressing and new barbering programmes through the spring and summer.
More than 800 hairdressing and barbering salons in the region including Nottingham and Derby will be receiving mail shots followed by NHTA staff calls offering, not only the NVQ and Apprenticeship programmes at level 2 and level 3 but also a complete training needs analysis for the organisation. Partnerships are in place with other local training providers should training needs fall outside the scope of NHTA.
Most learners particularly in the 16 – 18 age groups will be fully funded but potential learners of any age are eligible under the Train to Gain banner.
Feel free to contact NHTA to learn more or trawl the web site following the links including our partners for more information. Note our Mission Statement emphasising our commitment to environmental values and principles of equality and diversity.
It makes sense to have QUALIFIED staff in your business.
Call NOW, enjoy the funded training and utilise the FACILITIES and renowned EXPERTISE at NHTA and KROWN’S ACADEMY

Andrea Rowbotham at The Hair Room and Nail Bar in Kegworth receiving her NVQ Level 2 Hairdressing certificate from David Moreland, Managing Director of Nottingham Hairdressing Training Agency. February 2008
In January 2007 Andrea phoned NHTA after receiving a mail shot about Train to Gain at the salon where she was working as a ‘shampoo lady’ and cleaner. Andrea was 38 years old and had left school with no formal qualifications. With a young family Andrea had no time to carry on her work at the salon and take on extra studies to allow her to follow her ambition – to become a qualified hairdresser. Andrea wanted to know more about Train to Gain and how it could work for her.
Armed with appropriate information advice and guidance, Andrea started her training on the programme at the end of February 2007 and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Andrea says “it was a fantastic opportunity and I have been supported by everyone at the salon. Michaela, my tutor was fabulous and extremely supportive. I am thrilled to have achieved this qualification and it has changed my whole life.”
Emma, the salon owner says “This has been a wonderful opportunity, not only for Andrea but the whole salon. Now that Andrea is qualified she can work her own column as well as provide cover for holidays, sickness etc. The training came at the ideal time for me because it allowed me to go onto maternity leave knowing that I could come back part time because Andrea could take on some of my clients.”
Asked how she felt Train to Gain had benefited the business Emma commented, “I feel that Train to Gain is marvelous because Andrea has been able to train in the salon and not attend college on a regular basis. This has meant that she has gained invaluable salon experience whilst training. I would recommend this way of training to anyone.”
Andrea says she would like to enjoy what she has achieved for a little while but would definitely like to go on to achieve an NVQ Level 3 in the future.
In February 2008 NHTA celebrated 25 years of success.
