The benefits of an apprenticeship in the Hair Industry
Sarah Abel from TNB skills training joins me to talk about the importance of apprenticeships within the Hairdressing industry and the benefits of the programmes.
Sarah has been in the industry since she was 13! She returned to hair & beauty at 38, learned nails, and took over a business. She realised that there was a gap in the market for nail training apprenticeships.
She has had to often defend the industry against the common misconception that hairdressing or any vocational courses are not a pathway to a lucrative career, and the negative connotations that these are only for students who are not suitable for A-level courses or University.
Sarah has the stats to prove that actually these jobs can be just as high earning if not more!
We discuss the benefits of an apprenticeship programme, and what the future may hold for the industry.
Her academy has grown since 2008, and she has worked hard to find ways to work with employers to make sure both them and their trainees are well supported.
