International Website

The Advanced Apprenticeship Hairdressing is made up of qualifications and learning that will provide apprentices with the skills and knowledge required to become competent in their chosen job role. The framework includes a balance of content in technical, business and interpersonal areas, designed to ensure apprentices have an appropriate set of skills to operate in today’s job roles.

The programme is delivered in the workplace with day release at the Hairdressing Academy. If the apprentice is required to take Functional Skills, these will be held on the same day. It is evaluated through a combination of work-based assessments that enable the apprentice to complement skills that are learnt, developed and used within the workplace with the knowledge gained.
