Hairdressing Apprenticeship Level 3 at JET Hairdressing Academy

Course description

One of the best ways of up-skilling to become a specialist in your chosen profession is to complete an Advanced Apprenticeship. To do this you would need to already have achieved your Intermediate Hairdressing Apprenticeship or have an alternative appropriate Level 2 qualification and experience in hairdressing. As an Advanced Apprentice you are employed in one of the many hairdressing salons that JET work with throughout Essex & the surrounding counties – developing higher level skills and abilities, which will benefit your commercial clients, your employer and your own competencies. You will develop these skills depending on your salon's preferred training options, either at one of JET's purpose built academies in Basildon or Chelmsford, or at your own workplace salon. You should expect your Advanced Apprenticeship to last 18-24 months. After an interview and initial assessment to determine your individual requirements, a learning plan will be created to meet your individual training needs. This will be agreed by you and your employer and a full induction to the Advanced Apprenticeship programme will be given by one of our Training Co-ordinators. The Advanced Apprenticeship programme develops the skills required to be a successful stylist.
