What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are an excellent way of gaining hands-on experience to excel in a career. An apprenticeship involves structured training that enables individuals to develop the knowledge and skills required to do a specific job role.

Apprenticeships are a government recognised and approved learning programme, aimed at people over the age of 16. Apprenticeships are an excellent way of training junior members of staff, allowing them to gain hands-on, practical experience while earning a wage. On completion, apprentices will receive a government and employer-recognised qualification.

Our apprenticeships are centred around practical work-based learning. Instead of taking time out of work for days in college, we’ll assign you a dedicated educator. They’ll plan and oversee your tailor-made learning programme and offer support and guidance both online and face to face.

Why choose The Hair Base?

At The Hair Base our mission is to offer top-quality education that not only teaches technical skills but prepares apprentices for a successful career within the hair industry. Our salon is friendly, fun and approachable so you can feel comfortable and supported while you learn. We want you to learn new skills and make lifelong friends with us.

Learn & Earn

We will dedicate a generous amount of our apprentice’s working hours to training and commit to paying the national apprenticeship minimum wage for the first year of your employment.

Our apprentices will work a minimum of 30 hours per week so you have the opportunity to experience a full time job and take home a good wage!
