Courses

At Nurture Academy, we teach how to master the techniques required for braiding and the elements it takes to achieve an intended style.


We have taught people to braid for many years, and it's our experience in doing, so that has helped us to package our courses/workshops to meet the needs of our learners. We deliver this through:

This level has been carefully prepared for professional braiding stylists who already know the fundamentals of braiding and have perfected braiding techniques and styles.

This is the Business element of our courses; it is where the professional is put through business training to go on to work in a hairdressing establishment or run their own hair business. Trainees undergo a series of tuition focused around all aspects of running a business. Tuition consists of customer care, pricing, legal requirements and much more.

 

Courses run all year round consecutively so that learners can go through all three levels if they wish.  We also run regular one-day workshops. After these courses, learners will have accreditation which can go towards further hairdressing education, to begin their businesses or harness a lifelong skill to develop, continue and pass on.
