Course description

This framework provides a nationally agreed apprenticeship framework for the hairdressing industry, using qualifications that combine both skills and Knowledge. Apprenticeships are the traditional way of training hairdressers.

  • Hairdresser or Stylist (Apprenticeship)

Course content

There is an option to undertake training through:

  • The technical training is provided in the college one day per week, including time in practical workshops 
  • A majority of training is provided in the workplace, however the college will require all learners to attend college-based sessions to complete theory tasks and tests.

An apprenticeship is assessed as follows:

  • Completion of a portfolio of evidence
