We are looking for exceptional apprentice hairdressers, who have a passion for wanting to become a hairdresser. The Intermediate Hairdressing Apprenticeship training programme will last 12 - 15 months with the opportunity to progress to Level 3.

Responsibilities

Duties include:

  • Meet and greet customers
  • Shampoo and conditioner customers’ hair
  • Maintain a clean salon
  • Provide refreshments to the customers
  • Reception duties
  • Prepare customers for the stylists to cut, tint hair etc
  • As you develop skills you may be given the opportunity to style hair and apply tint and colour

Your training will require you to demonstrate your competence in:

  • Shampooing and conditioning
  • Cutting hair
  • Tinting hair
  • Styling hair, setting and dressing hair
  • Reception duties

Your skills and competence will be assessed on paying customers, either in our training salon or in your workplace.

Future Prospects

Many apprentices are given jobs with the employers they trained with as Junior Stylists, others go onto further studies. Apprentices are often fast-tracked by their employers for promotion to more senior positions.

Reality Check

The apprenticeship programme will take up to 15 months to complete. During this time you will be expected to attend the academy one day a week and three to four days a week in the salon - you earn while you learn. It is often a fast paced environment. You may be expected to work Saturdays.

Skills Required

  • Hairdressing is a fast moving, fashion orientated business, so you will need to be creative, enjoy meeting people and have loads of energy.
  • Be a good communicator with excellent social skills.

Qualities Required

  • Be well presented in all aspects including: clothing, hair and personal hygiene.
  • Be practical and well organised.
  • Have attention to detail and cleanliness.
  • Have a good sense of humour and amicable nature skills whether dealing face to face with clients or speaking on the telephone.
  • Be willing to work flexible hours/days as agreed in the employment contract.
  • Have a high degree of dexterity and coordination.

Qualifications Required

You won't need qualifications to apply but you will need the motivation and commitment to want to become a hairdresser or barber.

You don’t have to be the academic type and there are no set entry criteria for the Hairdressing Apprenticeship.

Training Provided

Apprenticeships combine on-the-job and off-the-job training. This means you'll spend time in a hairdressing salon working and learning the hairdressing skills to develop your competence in hairdressing.

You will attend one day a week at our state of the art London Hairdressing Academy training centre and salon, learning the underpinning knowledge and practical skills associated with hairdressing as well as important skills such as customer service, teamwork and retail skills including Maths and English.

You will gain skills, insight and experience with real clients, real work, real hairdressers and real products. Apprenticeships are not qualifications in their own right.

Instead they are a framework made up of many elements. An intermediate NVQ Diploma in Hairdressing which is a work-based qualification that is designed to ensure the apprentice is job ready.
