This course supports Junior Beauticians who are working in the industry and wish to gain a nationally recognised qualification.

During this 2 year course, you will attend College for 1 day a week, where you will study both the theory and practical aspects of the Beauty industry.

The Apprenticeship framework consists of several elements which have been identified by employers as an appropriate set of skills to operate in their chosen job role.

These elements are:
Maths - Level 1 or Level 2 Functional Skills, unless an equivalent qualification has already been achieved.

English - Level 1 or Level 2 Functional Skills, unless an equivalent qualification has already been achieved.

ICT - Level 1 or Level 2 is a requirement of some Apprenticeships unless an equivalent qualification has already been achieved.

ERR - Employee Rights and Responsibilities, which includes health and safety, equality and diversity as well as employment legislation.

PLTS - Personal Learning and Thinking Skills, which includes team working, creative thinking and reflective learning.

*Vocational Element (Knowledge) - most Apprenticeship frameworks include off-the-job study for a technical certificate which is usually done at College

*Vocational Element (Competence) - all Apprenticeships include on-the-job training and assessment leading to a competence based vocational qualification

*On some frameworks, the knowledge and competence elements are combined into one qualification.
