At the bottom end of the scale where skills, experience
and a sufficient clientele are still being developed we
are keen to employ and develop people who are ambitious
and want to progress as soon as possible. At the top of
the ladder are stylists who have earned the right to benefit

What is an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships enable you to practically learn your trade
as well as studying to gain the theory and enable you to
receive your qualification. They are aimed at young people
aged 16 and over to enable them to earn money whilst gaining
experience in a hairdressing environment. An apprenticeship
in hairdressing will normally involve you working in the
salon every day except when you attend college.
Why do an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship enables you to earn money whilst working
and gaining qualifications. You can use an apprenticeship
to gain NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) levels,
which is what you need to become a qualified hairdresser.
In addition to that you will also gain experience in the
practical environment as opposed to studying just at college.

Will I enjoy an apprenticeship?
When thinking about undertaking a hairdressing apprenticeship,
you should be certain that this is the career path you wish
to take. You need to be really focussed to be successful
and know that you will need to put in the work and organise

for balancing your time at work with studying in order to
get the most out of it; you can't just work in the salon
and not go to college because this doesn't meet the requirements
of an apprenticeship scheme. You should also be prepared
to be able to work as part of a team and as an individual.
How long does an apprenticeship take?
This can vary up to 24 months and is dependent on your own
