Course overview

 

The advanced Level 3 Apprenticeship in Hairdressing Framework enables students to learn the full skillset resulting in a hairdresser who’s ready to work on the salon floor.

 

As an entry requirement, you need to have completed your Level 2 Apprenticeship in hairdressing or hold 10 year’s salon experience.

 

Functional Skills 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 2 unless you have achieved grades 4-9/A-C GCSE. An initial and diagnostic assessment will gage your current level and help us know where to pitch your lessons.

 

 

I graduate next month and FEEL REALLY PREPARED, a little nervous, but excited too to start doing clients and becoming a PROFESSIONAL HAIRDRESSER.

Course structure

 

The course is broken into 4 units:

 

  • Creatively style and dress hair 

  • Creatively cut hair using a combination of techniques

  • Creatively colour and lighten hair

  • Provide client consultation services of look

 

The following units have also been pre-selected to maximise your employability as a hairdresser, though these can be amended if you and your employer wish to change:

  • Promotional activity

 

Value added 

 

Whilst studying at Gina Conway Academy, you will also learn:

 

  • Gina Conway 5-star service

  • Aveda rituals 

 

Assessment: You will build up a portfolio of assessments that consist of both practical and theory exams to achieve your qualification.

 

Kit: You will already have your hairdressing kit from NVQ Level 2 to use (Gina Conway Hairdressing Kit List). We recommend as you progress through your course that you add some additional tools, which are personal to your needs.

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.
