This Apprenticeship trains you in the basics of hairdressing. As a hairdressing apprentice, you’ll work as a salon junior, assisting senior staff whilst training as a junior stylist.

This course will introduce you to working in the hairdressing industry. You’ll cover advising and consulting with clients, as well as developing and maintaining your effectiveness at work.

Course Content

Duties will include:
  • Shampooing, conditioning, and treating
  • Styling and finishing hair
  • Cutting hair using basic techniques
  • Colouring and lightening hair
  • Fulfilling salon reception duties

The apprenticeship course is part time to fit around your work commitments. You may be required to attend college on a day release, and your tutor will visit you in the workplace.


Features and benefits of studying in this way are paid employment and on and off the job training.

The course content will give you sound underpinning knowledge of the main areas of work expected within the salon and a solid foundation on which to progress to a Level 3 qualification.

Entry Requirements

If you don’t have GCSE English and Maths, you will still be eligible to apply, provided you complete an initial BKSB assesment and achieve at least Entry Level 3. If you have not achieved Maths and English at grade C/4, you will be required to take Functional Skills alongside your apprenticeship.
