Hairdressing Apprenticeship Level 2 at JET Hairdressing Academy

Course description

A Hairdressing Apprenticeship is one of the best ways to train to become a hairdresser. As an apprentice, you will be working in one of the many hairdressing salons that JET work with throughout Essex & the surrounding counties – gaining invaluable experience with clients and working in a team. Your salon will help with your training in many different ways- you will practice your skills and depending on your salon's preferred training options, you may attend one of JET's purpose built academies in either Basildon or Chelmsford, or your apprenticeship will be delivered at your own workplace salon. You should expect your apprenticeship to last 18-24 months.

After an interview & 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 apprenticeship programme will be given by one of our Training Co-ordinators. The Intermediate apprenticeship programme covers all the basics skills required to be a junior stylist.
