Advent Calendar Day 19

Hairdressing Apprenticeship – VTCT Level 2 Diploma for Hair Professionals (Hairdressing)

Advent Calendar Day 19


Today we are opening up Advent Calendar Day 19, and we are diving back into hairdressing, this time looking at the Hair Professionals (Hairdressing) apprenticeship.

A Hairdressing apprenticeship is a great way to gain entry into the industry that allows an apprentice to learn and earn at the same time.

An apprenticeship is a combination of paid work and paid training in your chosen career. The paid work is called ‘on-the-job’ and the paid training is called ‘off-the-job’.

If you’re just starting to think about opting for the apprenticeship route, you probably have a lot of questions. We’ve provided some additional information to guide you, available on the information sheet which you can download on the left.

It’s important to know that depending on where you live, the way apprenticeships are run does differ slightly. In order to make sure you’re getting the information that is relevant to you based on your location, visit our Apprentice page and select your region on the map.
