The London Hairdressing Apprenticeship Academy will open its doors to potential students during a series of open days
The taster events will take place at all three of the LHAA academies – Borehamwood, Camden and Loughton. The open days will take place in January and February in 2016 and aim to give young people more information about their options and an insight into what an apprenticeship could do for their future careers.
“This is a showcase for the LHAA but crucially a chance for our visitors to understand they’ve got some great options that don’t involve school,” says LHAA Employer Engagement Manager Sabrina Fulgoni. “Too many young people stay on at school because they believe it’s their only option. We’re here to show them that academic courses aren’t the only way forward. There are incredible career opportunities out there to be taken.”
The LHAA has over 75 live vacancies ready to be filled and takes on new apprentices throughout the year. An apprenticeship begins by being given a job by one of our salon partners and you will train while you are working, giving you the benefit of our earn while you learn

, both staff and current students will be on hand to answer all questions that potential students might have. They can give tips on what to expect during training, as well as advice on how to get the most out of an apprenticeship opportunity.
“One of the things we are keen to establish is that our apprentices don’t need to worry about re-sitting their exams,” continues Sabrina. “If they hold D or an E in GCSE English and/or Maths, they can start right away without having to attain a C. Hairdressing is a wonderful vocation and can take you all over the world. We believe in giving passionate, hard-working youngsters the chance to achieve great things.”
