Apprenticeships: an investment in your future, without paying a penny!
There used to be a time when an internship was the first natural step after college or university.
Being out of work and relying on Government help is an uncomfortable position for anyone to be in. So the news that George Osborne plans to cut tax credits even further has hit struggling families hard. However, here at The London Hairdressing Apprenticeship Academy, we can offer a lifeline to those affected by the austerity measures – training in a new career and the chance to take control of your income opportunities.
First things first, the most crucial thing to explain is that there are no fees. You can come and train with us completely FREE, and develop the skills that will bring much-needed cash into your household. Hairdressing or barbering is an incredibly versatile profession, which you can make work for you. We’ve got plenty of spaces on the Adult programmes for this year just waiting to be filled.
The good news is that this is a very flexible course. Our courses are designed to accommodate people who have other demands on their time. The start and finish times can be managed to suit you so you can work around your family and childcare responsibilities.
Don’t think that these programmes are merely for young people to develop their skills either. We’ve welcomed people of all ages through our doors and taught them the art of hairdressing or barbering. The world is changing rapidly and often people find themselves pushed out of their jobs, or unable to find the right opportunity, so retraining is an attractive and cost-effective option. The added benefit is that this is one of the few professions that can’t be replaced by technology or the internet!
When you’ve completed the programme, you can progress onto the Level 3 programme in Hairdressing [Fees will apply for Level 3 programmes] or you can enter into self-employment. That’s often a very attractive option for mums who know they can work from home or mobile, without having to worry about the structure of a salon business.
If this sounds like the solution to your job issues, please do get in touch. Our team are ready to guide you through every step of the process and get you back in the job market – on your terms
