Is your hair
ou wouldn’t go to a doctor who isn’t qualified,
so why would you let an unqualified person put
hazardous chemicals on your hair and skin?
If your hairstylist is nationally qualified,
you know you are in safe hands. You can be sure they
have passed the necessary standards to practice as a
“A National Certificate in Hairdressing (Professional
Stylist) proves that they have skills and knowledge in all
aspects of hairdressing,” says New Zealand Hairdressing
Industry Training Organisation (HITO) CEO Erica
“It shows that someone has the range of skills needed
to work professionally and to cope with the individual
needs of clients. No two heads of hair are the same.”
At HITO they believe apprenticeships are the best
way to grow professional stylists that are right for clients.
As an apprentice you train in the salon with a nationally
qualified trainer and real clients, learning the skills you
need for a successful and safe career.
“The value of an apprenticeship is in the journey from
your induction, to learning all the skills along the way.
The end goal is your being skilled in all aspects of the
hairdressing and gaining your national qualification.”
Working in a real environment is not just about gaining
technical skills. You become skilled in every area needed
for working in a salon, including communication and
exceptional customer service.
So, the next time you go to get a cut and colour, ask
your stylist “Are you qualified to do this?”. We hope you
hear a resounding “Yes”. If you’re changing stylists, we
also recommend you ask to see their national qualification.
HITO offers hairdressing and barbering
apprenticeships. Whether you are interested in
apprenticeship, or you’re already working in the industry
and want to get nationally qualified, they have something

nationally recognised skills.
YOU into IT
Taking on the world
ith so many tertiary providers out there,
how do you determine which is best for
you? The key words are: best for you.
Ultimately, you’re looking for
employment, so your learning must include the
certifications employers want. You learn better by doing,
so you want tutor-led classes. Only tutor-led classes,
where every student has their own computer laboratory,
can truly give you the knowledge and practical learning
that leads you to really know your subject. That’s the
sort of knowledge that a future employer can tell that
you have during your first job interviews.
At the Information Technology Training Institute
(ITTI) classes have a maximum of ten students, giving
quality one-on-one time with your tutor. This is also a
primary reason why ITTI can boast high student pass
rates. The institute also gets great work experience
opportunities for students.
The ITTI advantages make it easier for us to help
you find a job when you graduate. Best of all, you have
fun while you are learning. So make the right decision

through academic excellence and through her proactive
contribution to her fellow students. Her major achievement for
the college,and also in terms of her own personal achievement,
was the successful submission of a student case report to the
