Start Your Dream Career With Tofem Apprenticeships
Apprenticeships are a great opportunity to get hands-on experience and advance in your profession. It allows for the development of knowledge and skills through structured training that will be necessary for a specific employment role later on. At the completion of the apprenticeship, the apprentice will receive a debt-free qualification that is recognised by both the government and the business.
You must work at least 30 hours per week as an apprentice. If you are 16 or over, however, you are not allowed to work more than 40 hours per week or more than 8 hours per day. Apprentices are entitled to the apprentice minimum wage but your wage is likely to improve as you proceed through your qualification.
You will be expected to do the following as an Apprentice Hairdresser:
- Meet and greet customers.
- Shampoo and conditioner customers’ hair.
- Maintain a clean salon.
- Provide refreshments to the customers.
- Reception duties.
- Prepare customers for the stylists to cut, tint hair, etc.
- As you develop skills you may be given the opportunity to style hair and apply tint and colour.
Shampooing and conditioning, cutting hair, colouring hair, styling hair, setting and dressing hair, and reception tasks are all skills you’ll need to demonstrate during your training. Your skills and knowledge will be tested on paying customers, at our salon.
The London Hairdressing Apprenticeship Academy LHAA will award successful apprentices with an NVQ Level 2 qualification.
