Future prospects

Many apprentices are given jobs with the employers they trained with as Junior Stylists, others go onto further studies. Apprentices are often fast-tracked by their employers for promotion to more senior positions.

Things to consider

The apprenticeship programme will take up to 12 months to complete. During this time you will be expected to attend the academy one day a week and three to four days a week in the salon - you earn while you learn.

It is often a fast paced environment.
