There’s no doubt about it – 2015 has been another blockbuster year for the London Hairdressing Apprenticeship Academy, and our highlights reel could have been three times as long!
In all three of our training academies, we’ve welcomed new talent and seen our trainee stylists flourish under the guidance of the dedicated teaching staff. Over the years, we’ve had so many exceptional youngsters through our doors, and we’ve watched them go on to have exciting, successful careers in the UK and beyond. To see someone walk in with just raw ability and enthusiasm and leave us equipped with everything they need to make a great life for themselves never stops being wonderful.
Of course, these success stories wouldn’t be possible without the incredible support of our salon partners. We only work with the best, and we’ve welcomed hairdressing and barbering’s great and good into our academies to give our students masterclasses they’ll remember forever. Working alongside these professional dynamos continues to be incredibly inspiring for us, and it’s magical to see the energy these visits bring.
Throughout the year, we’ve trained apprentices and welcomed adult learners in too. We promise to give our trainees the gateway to a career they’ll be able to rely on for life, and the chance to EARN WHILE THEY LEARN. Times are tough out there, and with technology changing the world of work in so many ways, it’s important to learn skills that won’t be outdated the moment a new scientific advance is made. We know that no robot or fancy machine can replace a hairdresser. Once you’ve got the skills, the world is your oyster, and it’s a career that can take you all over the world.
Our graduation events are always a highlight, as you’ll see in the video. It’s a chance for our incredible apprentices to reflect on their time with us, celebrate their success and look forward to a bright new future. Given that the Prime Minister has spoken about how apprenticeships are as important as university degrees, it’s great to know that we’re training the superstar stylists of the future. So thank you to all our staff, our salon partners and our apprentices – 2015 has been an incredible year because of all your hard work. We can’t wait to see what 2016 will bring!
