What's Involved

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. You must be able to work with all hair types ranging from straight hair to very curly, wiry hair. You will 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.

You will typically have been on the apprenticeship programme for 18 months before being entered for the end-point assessment. The minimum duration for the apprenticeship programme is 12 months. You will be required to attend college 1 day a week.

This is a Level 2 Apprenticeship.

Entry Requirements

A minimum of 5 GCSE’s Grade A*- C including: • GCSE Maths Grade D/3 or Functional Skill in Maths Level 1 • GCSE English Language Grade D/3 or Functional Skill in English Level 1

It is advantageous to have had previous experience of working within the barbering or hairdressing industry.

Where will it take me?

Apprentices can progress on to become a Senior Hair Professional or Stylist. Achievement of the apprenticeship makes you eligible for State Registration with the Hair Council.

At the end of your apprenticeship, the college will work with you and your employer to help you go on to the next level of training or gain full-time employment, either with your current employer or another employer the college has access to. The skills, knowledge and qualification you will gain from your apprenticeship means that Havering College can help you get to the level employers are looking for.

Course Assessment Method

The End Point Assessment (EPA) has two components – both will need to be passed in order to be awarded the apprenticeship.

  1. Observational of practical assessment – You will be assessed carrying out consultation for all services completed during the assessment. You must shampoo and condition hair as part of at least one service of the end assessment. You will be required to work on a minimum of two models.
  2. Oral questioning – The skills, knowledge and behaviours set out in the standards will be assessed using oral questioning during the practical assessment.

It is the final stage of the Diploma for Hair Professionals which is required for completion of the Hair Professional Apprenticeship.
