How An Apprenticeship Works

Step 1: Finding Your Apprentice

You may already have an apprentice or we will work with you to help find a suitable person for your business.

Step 2: Training And Progress

Your apprentice will spend time training at Hair Academy South West and also working at your salon.  One of our training co-ordinators will visit you and your trainee to review their progress on a regular basis and will be happy to answer any queries you may have. You will also be updated on your trainee’s progress throughout the programme.

Step 3: Assessment

The Academy will supply live models for trainees to work on, which will be evaluated by our assessors at the Academy. If you would rather your apprentice was assessed at your own salon, our assessors will be only too pleased to visit your salon for assessing by appointment.

Step 4: Further Training

Once your apprentice has completed training we have a range of further courses that you might wish to make use of, to extend the range of services that your salon offers.
