Activ8 your career with an Apprenticeship

So you think an Apprenticeship is right for you? If you think you’ll enjoy learning outside of the classroom in a real job whilst getting paid then you’re right!

What is an apprenticeship ?

As an apprentice you will work alongside experienced staff, in a real job, to develop the skills you need to accelerate, and advance your career. Apprenticeships are unique in that they allow you to both learn and earn at the same time. All Apprenticeships are fully-funded meaning you won’t be out of pocket, or owing any debt following your qualification completion.

You’ll spend most of your time in salon and will be given a set amount of time to complete your studies, supported throughout by your personal Trainer Coach who will give you the one to one support you need to succeed.

Apprenticeships are available from Foundation Level all the way up to Higher Apprenticeships, meaning what ever stage you’re at in your career, whether you’ve just left school, haven’t got the qualifications you wanted, or have graduated with a degree there’s an Apprenticeship for you.

Employers respect and value apprentices as they’re able to demonstrate real life experience and skills that can immediately improve business performance. Doing an Apprenticeship can open doors for you – you’ll get direct salon experience, get your name heard and add real value to your CV.

The amount you’ll be paid as an apprentice will vary according to your job role, and the employer you’re working for, however, all apprentices will be paid at least the Apprenticeship Minimum Wages – with many receiving much more than this.

Who can apply?

Anyone over the age of 16 can apply for an Apprenticeship. Apprenticeships are open to anyone, of any age, sex or ethnicity. At Educ8 we’re incredibly passionate about supporting, and promoting, equal opportunities. Almost every Apprenticeship can be made accessible whilst funding is available should any workplace adjustments be required.
