COVID-19 Important Information. 

Please do still apply for our apprenticeship opportunities despite the COVID-19 outbreak, we are all planning to secure future opportunities, and Skills Group is able to support you to make decisions about your future even whilst you cannot come in and meet us at this time.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has significantly affected many of our employers and their businesses and has restricted opportunities available for them to meet new people to join their team; like us, they remain committed to protecting you and keeping you safe.

Please apply via the website or contact us on 01752 332442 and one of our dedicated team will be able to discuss your career options.

We look forward to welcoming you to Skills Group in the future.

In the meantime, please do keep safe and observe the safety advice you have been given.

Throughout your apprenticeship you will be given duties such as:

  • Booking appointments
  • Shampooing
  • Conditioning
  • Drying and styling hair
  • Along with mixing and applying hair colouring

You’ll study hairdressing topics such as hair and skin testing, the effects of chemicals on hair and skin, and the principles of hair colour selection – there’s also the option to learn about promoting products, perming, and working with different hair types.

The salon experience generally starts with the apprentice; learning the art of scalp massage will help put your client at ease and ready for their cut.

Although safe working practices underpin the success of every salon, you will learn how to combine this with creative hairdressing and barbering techniques to meet the individual requirements of your client.  You will master colouring, cutting, setting and styling skills through ongoing practice sessions on models in preparation for your assessment on clients.
