The Hairdressing Apprenticeship is a practical route into a career in hairdressing where you will earn while you learn. Apprentices work four days a week with their employer and one day a week in college. Apprentices will be supported in the workplace by an approved mentor and in the classroom by their teacher. Apprentices will graduate after three years as a fully qualified Hairdresser with a QQI Level 6 award on the National Framework of Qualifications.
Applications for participation in the Apprenticeship program must be made by the salon directly to National Hairdressing Apprenticeship (NHA) at www.hairdressingapprenticeship.ie
The Apprentice cannot apply through WCFE, all applications come from salons through the NHA.
In a case where an applicant does not meet the educational requirements specified above, they must satisfactorily complete an informative panel interview facilitated by the Program Manager.
There are no costs incurred by the Apprentices.
Please Note: Every effort is made to have these costs as accurate as possible, however, please be aware that some of these costings are supplied by external agencies & external exam bodies and there is a potential for those to change unexpectedly. If changes occur they will be communicated to learners as soon as possible.
