We train over 350 Hairdressing Apprentices in our hi-tech Hairdressing Training Salons in Wolverhampton, Telford and Worcester every year. The salons provide Apprentices with all the facilities they need to excel during their time at the college. Our employer focussed Construction training facilities are state-of-the-art and represent high industry standards with a recent investment of £8 million.
Apprentices are able to learn their trade in a purpose built centre which boasts workshops for brickwork, electrical installation, carpentry, plumbing, painting and decorating and ground works. We also have a purpose built centre for Gas Training and Assessment which has a full range of open flued appliances and is capable of training up to ACS standards.

“We have had fantastic support from the college and now have flexible and highly skilled employees capable of doing a range of tasks. Three of our Apprentices have progressed within the company. The Apprenticeship scheme has allowed us to add a new vitality to the work force, and some of the older members of staff have even said they have learnt a thing or two off our Apprentices!” Keith Chadwick, Managing Director, Radshape
“The college’s recruitment process produced exceptional candidates and it saved us going through hundreds of CVs. That service in itself was worth its weight in gold. I would definitely recommend the Apprenticeship scheme – it’s worked for us.” Simon Welch, Head of Managed Services, Press Computer Systems
