Scottish Apprenticeship Week ends today 10th March 2017 and we want to shine the spotlight on our wonderful trainees as we highlight some of their reasons for choosing their apprenticeship journey. We asked a few of them what 3 words best describe the experience of being a Trainee Stylist and why someone should choose hairdressing as a career and here’s what they said:
In business for over 50 years literally hundreds of young apprentices have started their careers with us, sharpening their scissors and mastering their craft en route to a rewarding career. There are many attractive benefits a hairdressing career can bring: expert training in the craft and in personal growth; ongoing developments to keep a young person inspired and ahead of the game, competing in awards, climbing the ladder to manage a salon or join the Creative Team, plus a consistent and competitive salary.
Variety is guaranteed as each client has their own story and every day a hairdresser has the opportunity to make their client feel and look fabulous. From welcoming clients to the salon for their ‘first day at school’ haircut to the potential of travelling the world for fashion shoots or catwalk and professional hair shows. Relationships are at the heart of everything we do and investing in the professional and personal growth our young apprentices is a commitment we take very seriously. Alongside the company’s regular in-depth salon expert training programme in cutting and colouring techniques, advances and new products, the trainees are also enlisted on SVQ Hairdressing Levels 2 & 3 which is managed by ACT (Ambition Centre for Training) and offers accredited and structured theoretical education.
Throughout the year trainees growth and achievements are recognised and our Trainee Competitions are an opportunity for them to show off their creativity and skills and wow our judges to win cool prizes. In addition, our individual salon Trainee of the Year Awards are run annually and are presented at our Achievement Awards night.
