Hair & Beauty

We work with a wide range of salons across the region to provide hair & beauty apprenticeships. As part of these programmes you will not only develop your technical hairdressing and beauty therapy skills but also the personal and professional knowledge needed to work within a salon.

The hair and beauty sector is well established with lots of people self-employed, owning a salon or running a free-lance business.  Working within this sector also provides the opportunity to work overseas or on cruise ships.

Did you know? The UK hair and beauty sector has a turnover of £6.2 billion a year, employs nearly a quarter of a million people across 55,000 businesses and accounts for nearly 1% of the UK economy!
