Why choose a hairdressing apprenticeship?

You will combine both studying and working in a professional salon, meaning you ‘earn whilst you learn’. Whilst studying to complete the level 2 diploma for Hair Professionals in Hairdressing you will receive support from Portland Training, your tutor/assessor and your employer. We understand a new role is sometimes daunting, but we will help guide you through your apprenticeship every step of the way. We will also help increase your employability skills by increasing your maths and English knowledge with functional skills qualifications if of course you aren’t already exempt.

All this support will lead to you completing your end point assessment modules and becoming a qualified hair professional in between 12 to 24 months.
