Banish those GCSE Blues away – become an apprentice at the LHAA!
Did you achieve the GCSE results you were hoping for? If you did – congratulations! But if you were one of the many unfortunate students who didn’t quite succeed, take comfort in the fact that you are far from alone - the overall grades took such a decline (the sharpest since 1988) that many critics are suggesting it is the education system which is at fault, and not the student.
In an informative and eye-opening feature about GCSE Results Day, The Telegraph pointed out that “The Government’s push to get all pupils to study the traditional academic disciplines included in the EBacc… “narrows options” for teenagers, and includes subjects which “don’t work well for everyone”.
To put it simply, traditional education just isn't working, which makes apprenticeships more important than ever. In fact, in the Government’s new ‘Get In, Go Far’ apprenticeship toolkit, their number one key message is ‘We want it to become the norm for young people to consider an apprenticeship as a valid and respected route to a rewarding, well paid career.’
Here at the London Hairdressing Apprenticeship Academy, we want to take that message one step further: when you train with us, there’s only one qualification we’re looking for – your passion!
There’s never been a more exciting time to enter the world of hairdressing and barbering. It’s a vibrant, dynamic industry built on passion, creativity, individuality and freedom of expression, which means it’s You who’s important, not a few grades on a sheet of paper. Even better, when you train at the LHAA you will not only ‘Earn While You Learn’, you’ll also be backed every step of the way by one of our many hundreds of salon partners, which means you already have a salon placement while we teach you all the skills necessary to make your career a success! And what a career it could be – as a qualified hairdresser or barber, you could continue to work in a salon or you could travel the world! You might even decide to start your own business.
Don’t let traditional education grind you down. Kiss those GCSE blues goodbye and talk to us today about becoming a LHAA apprentice - your future has never looked brighter!
