What you will do in your working day

Our apprentice hairdressers learn essential skills on the job, including customer care, working as part of a team, salon operations and diary management, alongside technical hairdressing skills such as styling, cutting and colouring. Learning to be a sucessful hairdresser takes time and patience, and requires so much more than technical ability. People skills are absolutely critical. You will be taught and assessed in-salon, but must have an appetite to learn through observing and shadowing others too.

The training you will be getting

This qualification is Level 2 Hairdressing which awards a Diploma for hairdressing professional. It takes 18-24 months and comprises multiple modules along the way and a crucial end-point assessment to determine your readiness to take on clients of your own.
Functional Skills Level 2 in English and maths will be provided for those without Grade 4/C (or equivalent) if required. 
Training schedule has yet to be agreed. Details will be made available at a later date. 

What to expect at the end of your apprenticeship

We train apprentices with the view to keeping them in our team beyond training and to build them into sucessful stylists who want to keep working with us long term. This requires both parties to have confidence in the apprentice as a great hairdresser and employee.
