Hairdressing Apprenticeships

Central Training Group’s hairdressing apprenticeships were founded in 1988 and have trained thousands of apprentices wanting to establish a career in Hairdressing.

Train in hairdressing at a location to suit you, choose from our academies in London, Essex, Kent, Derby and Suffolk.


You’ll receive exceptional hands-on training, supported with online learning and coaching, as well as on the job work experience to build your skills. 

 

Hairdressing Traineeship

If you are aged 16-18, love to learn, but have very little or no work experience, then a Traineeship Programme could be ideal for you. 

Our expert Traineeship Course leaders will tailor the course for your individual needs and will concentrate on building up your employability, customer service skills and focus on hairdressing, to prepare you to start a Hairdressing Apprenticeship.

 

These programmes last between 6 - 24 weeks. We find most learners have progressed to an Apprenticeship by week 16. Get a great start on the rest of your career with a traineeship.
