What is a Hairdressing Apprenticeship?

Yazz Hairdressing Academy Barber Students collect CertificationsIf you’ve got a friend or family member who’s currently doing a Leeds hairdressing apprenticeship, you may well have wondered exactly what it entails. Maybe you’ve even thought about enquiring about a hairdressing apprenticeship yourself?

Before you pick up the phone and chat to us here at the Yazz Academy Leeds, we wanted to give you a little information to help answer any of your immediate concerns. After all, there are so many options available to school leavers today; it’s difficult to know exactly what to do.

But thanks to our special hairdressing academy, you can work alongside professionals and real clients in a Leeds hairdressing apprenticeship to gain the knowledge and skills you need for a career in hairdressing. But here’s the best part: you get to earn while you learn. Pick up tips and techniques from an experienced team of stylists in one of our training salons and ensure you have a steady stream of money making it into your bank. What could be better than that?

While we realise it may be nerve-wracking to embark on something brand new, the Yazz Hair Academy is a great place to develop your styling skills and earn on the job. If you’ve considered going into hairdressing, our apprenticeships equip you with all the skills – and hands-on experience – you need to help you gain a hairdressing qualification.

Our apprenticeships will see you work in a salon four days a week, alongside attending college for a day. An industry-accredited training academy that helps you gain a great job in hairdressing, our NVQ Level 2 and 3 courses will ensure you gain all the skills you need to help you when you leave.

What’s more, you’ll work alongside expert tutors and like-minded students in what will be an interesting Leeds hair course from start to finish. Our dedicated NVQ educators are accredited to the highest levels by City and Guilds and VTCT and our academy lessons include theory work, demonstrations, projects and workshops. We also work with big brands like TIGI, L’Oreal, Matrix and GHD, who get booked throughout the year to do demonstrations for our students.

If you work hard, you’ll graduate from the academy with the perfect blend of practical skills, having picked up useful theory knowledge and the qualifications along the way. You may even be offered full-time employment after you’ve finished, too. How about that to help motivate you to succeed?

Did you know we offer advanced hair Leeds apprenticeships, for example? You may even decide to train as a barber following your initial training, which can help you stand a better chance of finding the job for you later on.

We personally vet each and every one of the salons we work with, to ensure our students are working in safe and professional environments at all times. We’re confident you’ll love our courses here at the academy and gain a lot more from them than perhaps you first realise?
