Apprenticeship Standards

A new style of Apprenticeships


Apprenticeship Standards were designed in collaboration with employers.

These apprenticeships aim to develop the professional knowledge, skills and behaviour required for a specific job role. This method of teaching and learning also incorporates on-the-job and off-the-job training and may involve a qualification.

We’ve included helpful links below describing the key relationships between the apprentice, the employer and the training provider.

It takes consistency and dedication on the part of all three groups to reach the successful completion of an apprenticeship. As the employer, you will benefit from your interactions with your dedicated and hard-working apprentice. They will offer you a new perspective and an enthusiastic energy for the work you will do together. You will be able to influence a member of the next generation of the workforce, showing them how to develop the ideal work ethic you will want to hire in the future.

Currently, VTCT has apprenticeships available for Hairdressing, Barbering and Beauty Therapy. More sectors are under development and should be available soon.

Additionally, there are three stages of the Professional Apprenticeship Standards which are known as 1) On-Programme, 2) Gateway and 3) End-point Assessment. Please click on the button below to find out more.
