Requirements and prospects

Desired Skills

Desired qualifications

  • You won't need qualifications to apply but you will need the motivation and commitment to want to become a hairdresser or barber

Future prospects

Many apprentices are given jobs with the employers they trained with as stylists, others go onto further studies. Apprentices are often fast-tracked by their employers for promotion to more senior positions.

Things to consider

The apprenticeship programme will take up to 15 - 18 months to complete. During this time you will be expected to attend the academy one day a week and three to four days a week in the salon - you earn while you learn. It is often a fast paced environment. You may be expected to work Saturdays.
