Have your say on Level 2 Barbering Professional apprenticeship 

Do you have an apprentice on the Level 2 Hair Professional Apprenticeships, or are you thinking of taking on an apprentice? If so, you now have the chance to influence how this apprenticeship will change and develop in the future.

The (Trailblazer) apprenticeships (England only) were originally developed by hair and beauty employees to ensure apprentices gain the level of knowledge, skills and behaviours they need to work well in a hair salon, barbershop or beauty salon.

 Following the Institute for Apprenticeship and Technical Education (IfATE)  route review in mid-2019, the review of the Hair Professional standard was temporally placed on hold due to the Coronavirus in 2020. The Hair Professional Apprenticeship Steering Group (HPASG) and Expert working groups have been working over the last year to review the apprenticeships, which is now ready for wider consultation.
