What others say about us

KM Training consistently receives good grades from all organisations that monitor us. Established in 1996, KM Training became an approved centre for Vocational Training Charitable Trust (VTCT) in 2011. We have twice been awarded the Customer First Quality Award and achieved the Matrix award for Information, Advice and Guidance in 2013 and 2016.

We have been inspected twice by the Adult Learning Inspectorate and Ofsted respectively and have consistently been awarded Grade 2 ‘ Good’ for our training in both ‘Hairdressing’ and ‘Leadership and Management’ (full reports can be found on www.ofsted.gov.uk ). More recently our provider partners continue to offer the same quality of provision.

We have been found to be good in hairdressing/ barbering training that is much valued by learners. During inspection our strengths were:

  • Very effective support for learners
  • Good standards of teaching and learning
  • Particularly effective induction
  • Good standard of practical skills

During the past few years we have increased our use of e-learning facilities in all our training and salon network and so you will have access to up to date training and e-learning facilities including interactive whiteboards, ipads, access to online testing and mobile software and touch screen point of sale tools. This has been a development of our training provision much valued by our learners and we hope you will avail of it too.
