DELIVERY MODES & DURATION

At Toni & Guy Melbourne School of Hairdressing, we offer our qualification both as Traineeship and Non-traineeship. 

On Campus (Non-Traineeship) delivery enables you to gain a full qualification in 3 – 6 months. Learners will be required to attend structured Workshop Sessions at TONI&GUY Melbourne School of Hairdressing South Melbourne Campus. A Learner can choose to engage either full-time or part-time to complete the course in this delivery mode. 

An traineeship is a structured training arrangement. It is a learning pathway that combines paid on-the-job training and formal study with a Registered Training Organisation. It’s a great way to gain a nationally recognised qualification while earning a wage rather than having to choose one over the other!

You can begin this traineeship while you are still at school, just out of school, or later in life and will be required to enter into a training contract with your employer.

At TONI&GUY Melbourne School of Hairdressing, we create personalised Training Plans for each of our Trainees where we incorporate learning that is specific to your workplace. We blend your learning and assessment between attending workshops in our South Melbourne campus and structured training in the workplace. We take what you’re already good at and make you even better.

This nationally recognised qualification can take between 6 to 12 months to complete but may be completed earlier within our flexible learning environment.
