Advanced Apprenticeship in Hairdressing | Walsall College

Advanced Apprenticeship in Hairdressing

An apprenticeship is a great way of developing the skills and gaining the experience you needed to progress in a chosen career. This apprenticeship is ideal for those currently working as or wishing to work within the Hairdressing industry.

Over the course of the programme Apprentices work towards a NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Hairdressing. This programme is designed to provide Apprentices with the advanced skills needed to be a professional hairdresser, able to offer a wide range of treatments to clients and with a clear understanding of how their performance is directly related to the success of the business and their own remuneration.

What do Employers get out of Apprenticeships?

Apprenticeships offer employers the opportunity to train new or existing members of staff to understand and support the unique requirements of their business.

The selection process will include a basic Initial Assessment and an in depth interview during which your suitability, commitment and interest for the programme will be determined. You will also be required to carry out a skills test.
To be accepted onto the programme you will need to have completed the Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Hairdressing or equivalent and must have achieved GCSE grades C or above in Maths and English or Level 1 in Functional Skills Maths and English or equivalent.
If you have attained these grades it may give you an exemption from the functional skills components of the framework however if you do not have the required grades, additional support will be provided to bring you up to the required level dependant on your initial assessment results.

The suitability of your employer will also be determined before you are accepted onto the programme. Your employer will need to demonstrate that they have the necessary Health and Safety arrangements in place to satisfy legislative requirements, and that they are able to provide you with the full range of work to successfully complete the Apprenticeship framework.
If you do not have an offer of employment we may be able to assist you, however this cannot be guaranteed as demand for Apprenticeship places are high.
