A Hairdressing Apprenticeship is one of the best ways to train to become a hairdresser. As an apprentice, you will be working in one of the many hairdressing salons that JET work with throughout Essex & the surrounding counties – gaining invaluable experience with clients and working in a team. Your salon will help with your training in many different ways- you will practice your skills and depending on your salon’s preferred training options, you may attend one of JET’s purpose built academies in either Basildon, Chelmsford, or Leigh-on-Sea, or your apprenticeship will be delivered at your own workplace salon. You should expect your apprenticeship to last 18-24 months.

After an interview & initial assessment to determine your individual requirements, a learning plan will be created to meet your individual training needs. This will be agreed by you and your employer and a full induction to the apprenticeship programme will be given by one of our Training Co-ordinators.

You will work with all hair types ranging from straight to very curly hair and carry out consultations with clients, demonstrate the professionalism, values, behaviours, communication skills and safe working practices and be able to work without supervision to a high level of precision, with exceptional client care skills.

You will develop skills in the following areas:
Shampooing, conditioning & treating the hair & scalp
Cut hair using a range of techniques to create a variety of looks including some restyles
Styling & finishing hair using a range of techniques to achieve a variety of looks including hair up looks and added hair.
Perming hair*
Hair Extension services*
Health & Safety across all units and current legislation
* Shows optional units- To be agreed with learner, salon and Jet to best fit needs.
You will also be given a real insight into the Hairdressing Industry to include what employers will expect from you how important it is to sustain your employment so you can progress even further in this exciting and creative career choice.
