What opportunities will this course give me?

On completion and achievement of the standard, apprentices can progress on to Level 3 standard for Senior Hairdresser or Senior Barber.

What will I be learning?

Hairdressers and Barbers cut, colour and shape clients' hair to create the look they want.

They must be able to work with all hair types ranging from straight hair to very curly, wiry hair. They also need to be able to carry out consultations with clients, demonstrate the professionalism, values, behaviours, communication skills and safe working practices associated with their role and be able to work without supervision to a high level of precision, with exceptional client care skills.

Why is this course for me?

Hairdressers will be able to shampoo and condition hair, cut hair using a range of techniques, style and finish hair to create variety of looks, and colour and lighten hair for ladies and men.

Barbers will be able to shampoo and condition hair, cut hair using barbering techniques, style and finish hair, cut facial hair into shape and provide shaving services for men.

Apprentices will focus on the development of the mandatory knowledge, skills and behaviours before opting for an occupational area in Hairdressing or Barbering to develop more specific skills and techniques.

You will undertake on and off-the-job learning and are expected to attend Eastleigh College on a day release basis. On successful completion apprentices will be awarded the Level 2 Diploma for Hair Professionals and, unless exempt on entry, apprentices will be required to achieve Level 1 Functional Skills in English & Maths and take the test at Level 2 prior to undertaking end point assessment.

Your progress will be continuously monitored and supported by an Apprenticeship Officer.

What do I need to sign up?

In addition, you need to have 4 GCSEs at grade D / 3 or higher, including English & Maths or have achieved a Level 1 hairdressing qualification or have relevant experience* and be able to demonstrate ability equivalent to, or exceeding Level 1 in English & Maths.
