Parents Information

If your son or daughter chooses a career in hairdressing an apprenticeship is the most common training route. They’ll be gaining real, paid work experience in a salon whilst they learn. Your child will be working in a salon for four days per week and attending training at our Leeds hair academy one day per week.

Yazz Hair Academy Leeds is a private training provider; we take great pride in the selection and training of our staff in order to ensure your child is safe and educated to the highest standard. This includes CRB checks and references, a practical safeguarding policy and stringent health and safety rules.

The majority of the apprentices we train go on to be offered full-time employment – often in the salon they have been training in. It doesn’t stop there though; apprentices give students the opportunity to progress onto other courses, such as barbering and the advanced apprenticeship or move on to roles that can take them all over the world!
