Helping someone discover their passions through an apprenticeship is a rewarding opportunity.
VTCT offers a range of Apprenticeship Standards covering Hairdressing & Barbering, Nail & Beauty Therapies, and Wellbeing & Holistic Therapy.
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 resources for providers for each nation.
The Apprenticeship Standard aims 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.
Successful apprenticeships are based on the key relationships between the apprentice, the employer and the training provider. It takes a consistent and dedicated effort on the part of all three groups to reach the successful completion of an apprenticeship - see roles and responsibilities below. As the training provider, your role is critical in preparing the apprentice for their End-point Assessment. You will be the one to make sure they have a solid understanding of the technical application of the work they will do every day. This will become the foundation for their future career.
Find out more below about the three stages of the Professional Apprenticeship Standards which are known as 1) On-Programme, 2) Gateway and 3) End-point Assessment.
