FAQ’s About Hairdressing Apprenticeship
How long does it take to become a fully qualified hairdresser through an apprenticeship or assistant program?
We have a rough guideline of around 30 months for training and is dependent on the individual. We do have a period without training (around 4 weeks) for the peak time of Christmas.
Can I do my NVQ Level 3?
If you want to do your Level 3 this will be in addition to the 30 months. This is done on a by case basis but please do note that you do not need any sort of NVQ training to become a hairdresser on our salon floors.
What do I need to do to complete my training and go on the salon floor?
Towards the end of your time as an Apprentice or an Assistant, and when you are ready, you will have a practical assessment period. This period lasts for 4 weeks however it is possible to do the entire training more quickly and is judged on a case by case basis depending on your skills. We never hold anyone back to become a qualified Trevor Sorbie hairdresser so if someone is absolute amazing they can be on the floor as quickly as 12 – 24 months.
What will my job involve?
Often described as the cogs of the salon, without our valued Assistant and Apprentice team we can’t function as a award-winning salon. Your day to day role includes shampooing and blow drying hair, delivering high end customer service, assisting hairdressers within the salon, serving refreshments, helping our host team, and general salon support to assist the smooth running of the salon.
