As an apprentice, you will be working in a beauty salon. You will assist in the smooth running of the salon and support the beauty therapist. You will generally spend four days a week at work and one day in college. A typical day in the workplace will involve welcoming the clients, answering the phone and making appointments and general housekeeping duties to keep the salon tidy. You must be willing to learn new skills and take part in training activities to enhance your learning.
Throughout the course you will be assessed in the workplace to demonstrate the skills you are learning. The theory side of the course is assessed by online assessments in college. These are followed up by assessments on paying clients in the college salon.
The majority of apprentices continue in paid employment in a salon once they complete their qualification. You can progress onto full time Level 4 Clinical Aesthetics course or specialize in Spa Therapy or Holistic Therapy.
