Who should attend?
Salon owners, employers or salon managers should attend.

Why should you attend this event?
As a salon owner, you may be considering the inclusion of an apprentice to your team. The National Hairdressing Apprenticeship will soon be taking expressions of interest from employers to engage with the apprenticeship. The initial programme will roll out with 14 apprentices in Limerick in 2019, and will then rollout nationally in 2020.
This National Hairdressing Apprenticeship program has been designed by the industry for the industry. This apprenticeship programme, through a blend of college and in-salon education provides a consistent training structure, supporting employers in developing and nurturing their apprentices.
This will assist apprentices in gaining a recognised qualification and learning the skills required to work autonomously on the salon floor as a qualified hairdresser.
This programme will be Ireland’s first nationally recognised statutory hairdressing apprenticeship programme, offering excellent opportunities to apprentices and leading to a nationally recognised qualification at QQI Level 6.

At this event, you will be given an overview of:

  • Benefits of a National Hairdressing Apprenticeship
  • The newly designed programme
  • Curriculum overview
  • Employer information
  • Mentor training
  • The path to becoming a registered apprentice employer

There will also be significant time given to a Questions and Answers session.
