HITO Fees

Fees for HITO hairdressing, barbering and beauty therapy apprentices will be covered by the Government’s Targeted Training and Apprenticeship Fund until December 31, 2022.

HITO apprenticeship fees are:
Hairdressing – $5,460, payable in annual instalments of $1,560 for 3.5 years
Barbering – $3,120, payable in annual instalments of $1,560 for 2 years
Beauty – $3,120, payable in annual instalments of $1,560 for 2 years

We offer a 10% discount for early payment of the annual instalment and a weekly payment option.

If you have already gained NZQA unit standards towards this qualification through other study options, the duration of your apprenticeship programme and fees will be adjusted to reflect this.

If it takes you longer than expected to complete your qualification, there will be no additional charge.

Our Qualification by Experience programme costs between $990 – $2000. Candidates are not eligible for any Government fee subsidy. Find out more

Payment methods

Pay in full

If you choose to pay your annual instalment in full, you’ll get a 10% discount if you pay within 30 days of the invoice date. That means you’ll pay just $1,404, instead of $1,560 per year. Payment can be made by bank transfer or credit card.

Pay weekly

If you can’t pay your annual instalment in full, you can pay weekly by direct debit. The minimum you can pay is $30 per week. At this rate, it will take 3.5 years to pay for the hairdressing qualification, 2 years for barbering, and 2 years for beauty therapy.

As your weekly direct debit amount is received by HITO we will record it and reduce your outstanding fee balance by this amount.

Non-payment of fees is a breach of your training agreement’s terms and conditions and may affect your apprenticeship.

Contact us if you have any queries about your fees account balance.

If an employer wishes to help pay an apprentice’s fees, this needs to be negotiated as part of the employment agreement.

Refunds

HITO fees are non-refundable.
