Raising The Participation Age

Young people must continue in education or training until the end of the academic year in which they reach their 18th birthday. 

For young people who don’t want to continue full time education and would love to work in the hairdressing industry can become an apprentice, as they will be receiving training one day a week from us and learning on the job in their salon.

Apprenticeship Standards

We are now delivering the new Apprenticeship standards - Level 2 Diploma for Hair Professionals - Hairdressing.  The main difference between the standards and the framework is the End Point Assessment.  The learner will carry out the assessment like a 'trade test'.  We will teach our learners all the skills and techniques to succeed.
