Hair and Barbering
Hair Professional: Hairdressing, Apprenticeship
This apprenticeship will enable you to learn practical skills on the job as well as developing your theoretical skills in Weston College’s commercial salons. You will earn a wage and gain valuable work experience while also getting the benefits of being a student.
You will learn the theory and skills you will need to gain employment in the industry, along with the professionalism and behaviour expected within the sector. The topics you will study include basic techniques in cutting hair, changing hair colour, styling, dressing, and finishing hair. We’ll also develop your English and maths skills as part of this programme.
How will I be assessed?
Your personal assessor will visit your salon to review your progress and we’ll also assess you in our commercial salon. Once your gradebook is complete, we will agree an end-point assessment with you, which will be an externally graded six-hour trade test.
What could I do after this course?
Most of our apprentices are kept on by their employer after they finish their programme. You could develop your skills by progressing to an advanced apprenticeship, or the Women’s Hairdressing Level 3 programme at Weston College.
Four GCSEs at grade 9-3, including English and maths, or a Level 1 qualification. You will also need to be in employment in the industry, but we can support you to find this.
