All About

Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are a great option for young hairdressers who want to get into the world of work. Unlike college, they will gain skills, experience, and qualifications on the job. Plus, you earn whilst you learn.

“Employers think that Apprentices are 15% more employable than those with other qualifications”

At Masterclass, we deliver both an Level 2 Diploma for hair professionals and NVQ Level 3 framework. Our academy provides a dynamic environment for learning both hairdressing and life skills.

We currently have a 92.3% Success Rate for our NVQ Level 2 16 – 18 year old apprentices and an 100% Success Rate for our NVQ Level 3.

To become an apprentice, you will need to be employed in a hairdressing salon. We work with a number of local salons including Hair Ott and may be able to help with a placement.
