If you’re an employer in the hairdressing sector, taking on an apprentice is a great way to train new staff and for your business to benefit from an employee with the latest sector skills and knowledge.
Whether you need a new member of staff to train as a junior stylist, or want to increase the services you can offer by having an employee with more advanced skills, apprenticeship training will enable them to work alongside existing staff and learn on-the-job.
Apprentices will combine working in the salon with studying at the college’s Metro One campus– usually one day per week – where they will be taught by experienced tutors and further benefit from working in the Academy hair salon whichoperates on a commercial basis and is open to the public.
What’s more, both you and the apprentice will be supported throughout the training by a college assessor who will visit the workplace to make sure your apprentice is meeting their targets and that you are both getting the most out of the training.
The college has a dedicated recruitment team to support employers in appointing an apprentice – including advertising vacancies, screening applicants and shortlisting candidates for interview; and with a talent pool of enthusiastic young people waiting for a business apprenticeship you can be sure you’ll be employing the right person for the job!
And apprenticeships aren’t just for new staff! If you want to upskill and develop existing members of your team they can benefit from apprenticeship training too – email email@example.com and a member of the team will contact you to discuss your requirements further.
