Apprenticeships are designed to help young employees like you reach their full potential, and because they are structured and require commitment you’ll find yourself becoming more disciplined from the very start.

Hairdressing apprenticeships have been designed by industry specialists who genuinely understand what you do, making them current and specific to the commercial industry.

The employer provides on– the– job training either via model nights or training mixed into the daily tasks of the apprentice. You will receive a minimum of two and half hours per week training with someone in the workplace and this forms part of the responsibility of the partnership between the college and the employer to train you. The employer is responsible for wages and employment costs as the apprentice is their employee, and all apprentices must be employed for a minimum of 30 hours per week in the salon, as well as attending college on a Monday.

As an apprentice, you will work towards producing a portfolio with the help of the college assessor. The assessor will need to visit you in the workplace to assess your work. Your Havering College assessor will visit the salon to assess you around six times per year – two visits per term.

Every six to eight weeks your employer will receive a monitoring visit carried out by a member of the apprenticeship team from Havering College will discuss your progress.

The duration of this Apprenticeship is generally 12-18 months.

To provide a nationally agreed apprenticeship framework for a work based learning route into employment in the industry using qualifications that combine both skills and knowledge which are based on the latest research with employers. There are over 35,700 hairdressing salons in the UK employing about 200,000 people.
