COLLEGE CLOSURE! The college will be closed to all students and staff (Monday 25 January) due to weather conditions. Online learning will continue as normal. You can keep up-to-date via the website and social media.
If you want to be a hairdresser or barber, an apprenticeship is the ideal way to learn the skills you need for your future career.
With programmes at beginner level if you’re just starting out, or advanced level if you want to develop your skills further, an apprenticeship will enable you to work in the industry while you’re doing your training.
During your training you will combine working for an employer with attending college one day a week. In the workplace you will work alongside experienced staff, gaining job-specific skills and gaining a wide range of workplace knowledge and, because you’ll be doing a real job for a real employer you’ll get paid too!
On your day at college you will continue learning in the Academy hair salon, at the Metro One campus in the city centre, which operates as a commercial salon and is open to the public. You will be trained by qualified tutors who have worked in the hairdressing industry for many years and will be supported throughout your training by a college assessor who will make sure you are meeting your targets and that you are both getting the most out of the training.
And, did you know that apprenticeships aren’t just for new staff? if you’re already employed in the industry and want to improve your skills and boost your promotion prospects you can benefit from apprenticeship training too – just ask your employer to email email@example.com and a member of the team will contact them to discuss your training further.
