Apprentices

As an Apprentice with Andrew Collinge Training, you will gain experience in every aspect of hairdressing.

We work with a number of selected hairdressing salons throughout Merseyside including Wirral, Lancashire, Cheshire and Manchester.

Our approach to hairdressing training is to build a solid foundation of theoretical understanding mixed with great practical opportunities. As an Apprentice you will be employed at a local salon and attend either our Liverpool or Birkenhead training centre once a week. At our training centres there is a mix of classroom learning and practical hairdressing in the training salons on paying customers. This real commercial experience is essential to develop confidence and competence to work in a salon and contribute with both hairdressing and customer service skills.

If new to hairdressing you will be enrolled onto the Level 2 Hair Professional Apprenticeship. We have enrolment dates between July and October.

For those already possessing a Level 2 Hairdressing apprenticeship we operate a Level 3 Advanced Hairdressing Apprenticeship. Demand for this course is high so early application for enrolment every September is essential.

Why choose us

Andrew Collinge is at the forefront of hairdressing training with its own purpose built training salons in both Birkenhead and Liverpool. For three consecutive Ofsted inspections Andrew Collinge Training was awarded an Outstanding Grade 1 for hairdressing. At our most recent Ofsted Andrew Collinge Training was graded ‘Good’ overall, with Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare of Apprentices graded as ‘Outstanding’.

We pride ourselves on the strength of our hairdressing tuition with Ofsted reporting, "Tutors have excellent practical skills and in-depth, up-to-date subject knowledge, which correspond with industry standards. They make excellent use of their expertise and passion for hairdressing to motivate and inspire apprentices and to prepare them for the workplace."
