The Apprentice

This is an exciting time in your life! An apprenticeship offers you so many opportunities to learn and explore.

VTCT offers a range of Apprenticeship Standards covering Hairdressing & Barbering, Nail & Beauty Therapies, and Wellbeing & Holistic Therapy. This is a time to discover where your passions lie and how you can pursue the career of your dreams.

Apprenticeships are structured differently within each country in the UK. On this page, you will primarily find information on the apprenticeships supported and assessed through VTCT in England. In addition, you will also find links to the official apprenticeship websites for each nation.

An Apprenticeship will help you gain the professional knowledge, skills and behaviour that you will need for your future career. This is a method that involves you learning both in the classroom and on the job, and it may involve a qualification.

We've included a link below - roles and responsibilities - that describes the key relationships between the apprentice, the employer and the training provider. Remember, it takes a lot of consistent and dedicated effort to reach the successful completion of an apprenticeship. You will rely on both your training provider and your employer to reach the end.

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