A Hairdressing or Barbering apprenticeship is a work based learning programme which results in nationally recognised salon qualifications. In a salon apprenticeship programme employers are encouraged to help their apprentice learn during their time in their placement as the majority of learning takes place here.
The apprentice attends a training academy one day per week and have to complete a minimum of 30 hours in their work place.
Starting your career as a hairdressing apprentice means that not only will you be gaining skills and knowledge from your classes at The School Of Hairdressing, you will also be interacting daily with experienced hair stylists from in your salon placement.
It’s an enjoyable way to learn hairdressing; alongside professional stylists, in a real salon environment with a structured syllabus to ensure your knowledge and skills are to a high standard.
An apprenticeship is work based learning, you learn whilst at work and are employed by the company. As an employee you are entitled to a salary of £3.30 per hour if you are in your first year as an apprentice and then if you chose to continue onto an advanced apprenticeship you are entitled to minimum wage for your age.
Hairdressing Apprenticeships are available for people aged 16-18. Apprentices get a real feel for the salon and how it is run allowing you to build up a realistic view of how things actually work rather than going to a main stream college.
An NVQ Apprenticeship Barbering teaches you everything you need to know about men’s hairdressing, the latest trends and how to suit and adapt them to various hair textures and individuals. The School Of Hairdressing will teach you cutting and clipper techniques, blending and texturising of the hair.
Barbering is becoming more common in salons as men are starting to realise the difference in service in comparison to a standard barber. This course is also great for those of you that only cut women’s hair and want to enhance your range of ability and introduce yourselves into barbering.
