Course overview

 

The Level 2 Apprenticeship Standard in Hair Professionals replaced the previous NVQ level 2 in May 2017 adding some additional elements from Level 3 Apprenticeship to help ensure apprentices are more ‘work ready’ at the end of their course.

 

Functional Skills in Maths and English are required as part of an apprenticeship if the relevant GCSE’s were not achieved, which gives a great chance to upskill if you did not achieve these at school.

 

You will need to achieve Functional Skills Level 1 and have attempted (but not necessarily passed) your Level 2. An initial diagnostic assessment will gage your current level and help us know where to pitch your lessons.

 

“The education program is hands-on, in-depth and the trainers and educators are all there to help you every step along the way.”

Added Value

 

Whilst studying with Gina Conway Academy you will learn the following as a matter of course:

 

  • Gina Conway 5-star service

  • Aveda rituals

Assessments: Once all these elements are complete, you’ll take your End Point Assessment. This synoptic assessment allows you to demonstrate your skills using a variety of techniques on models to an independent assessor.

 

Kit: We provide electrical equipment to use at the academy, though you will need to purchase a kit
before starting the course. A list of hairdressing tools needed can be found in Gina Conway Hairdressing Kit List.

 

Wages: As an apprentice, you earn as you learn and you will be paid for your training time. You’ll be released from work one day a week to attend your course.

 

An apprentice’s wage will vary depending on your employer, though this rate cannot go below the apprenticeship minimum wage. A full breakdown of this can be found at https://www.gov.uk/national-minimum-wage-rates
