As an apprentice you will need to be employed working in a hairdressing, barbers or beauty salon or spa and come to college one day a week to study. We are sometimes aware of salon vacancies and can help you to apply for work.



You can start by working towards an NVQ Level 2 Diploma, which is a two year programme  with the opportunity to move on to the NVQ Level 3 Diploma - Advanced Apprenticeship.



The study days include all the basic aspects of hairdressing, barbering beauty or spa therapy, according to the route you have chosen.



As a hairdressing apprentice you will work as a salon junior, assisting senior staff while training as a junior stylist. As a beauty or spa therapist you will be carrying out basic treatments and assisting with clients and the general running of the business. 



Duties are likely to include booking appointments, assisting clients and checking the salon is looking professional.

 

On this Apprenticeship you’ll spend a lot of time on your feet and be physically active and it’s important that you look smart and professional. Good communication is important too.  Training and assessments will also be carried out in your workplace and you will need a hairdressing equipment kit which is available to buy through the college.
