College of Hairdressing, Connaught - a reputation for excellence

Josephine Cribbin has been synonymous with hairdressing training in the 24 years since she established the College of Hairdressing, Connaught, one of the first private hairdressing training colleges in the west of Ireland, that was dedicated solely to training.

The college started in an attic room in Shop Street in 1991 with just three students. Through quality training and dedication to constant course updates in line with hairdressing trends, Josephine Cribbin was able to move the growing business three years later to Kiltartan House in Forster Street, Galway, where it is still located.

Josephine Cribbin has worked alongside City & Guilds as an external verifier over the years with the sole intention of providing quality basic training as a foundation to a hairdressing career.

The college has adapted over the years in response to the changing needs of the hairdressing industry. As well as offering the City & Guilds internationally recognised NVQ diploma in hairdressing, the college is the only private training provider for FETAC offering the Level 5 hairdressing training award. It also provides training for Senior and Junior Trades certificate.

This coveted award is on the National Framework of Qualifications and allows the College of Hairdressing Connaught to feature on the internationalisation register — a list of education programmes approved for students from outside the EU — for the first time. While the excellent reputation of the college has been known nationally for 24 years its presence on the internationalisation register has attracted students worldwide.
