Hair Professional Apprenticeship Standard (Hairdressing)

An Apprenticeship is a brilliant first step on the career path in many businesses. They are an excellent way of gaining nationally recognised qualifications whilst earning a wage and combine 'hands on' learning with college study. Apprenticeships are the traditional way hairdressers are trained.

This apprenticeship is ideal for those currently working as or looking for work as a Junior Stylist carrying out treatments including basic cutting, styling, drying and finishing.

Over the course of the programme Apprentices will work towards achievement of a NVQ Diploma Level 2 in Hairdressing.

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 must have GCSE grades E or above in Maths and English. Grade C or above are desirable. 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.
